Bonang is going to be joining  Khanyi Mbau, Nadia Nakai, Naked DJ, Diamond Platnumz, Swanky Jerry, and Zari The boss lady.



Bonang joins Netflix reality show But, it’s not in a way many expect. Bonang will be featured on Young, Famous & African, but she is not going to be a cast member. So … Rumours are true, but with a caveat.





Her appearance on Young, Famous & African has since sparked mixed reactions on social media. While her fans are overjoyed that Bonang is going to feature on the reality show, some don’t think she deserves to be on the show at all.

On the other hand,  her diehard fans are not happy with the fact that she is only getting a cameo role on Young, Famous & African as they wanted her to be a  whole cast member.

Check some of the reactions;

In all honesty we need to allow Bonang to rest now…she has done well in for the industry but she is not relevant anymore and it’s fine because she can focus on other things like running her businesses
Wait! So she’s only gonna be a “friend of” on the show I was really looking forward to seeing her on the show as a full cast member.
No disrespect but I personally DONT think this show is for her, she got her OWN shows going, it’s a bit cringe to try bonding with new people.
I’m excited but I don’t want to see more of her on our screens, she’s a queen and familiarity breeds contempt
