Media personality Bonang Matheba made a short, but not-so sweet appearance on Young, Famous and African season two. While she took centre stage in a teaser of the show, she was barely present throughout the season and had a falling out with one of the other “newbies” on the show, Luis Munana.

She then left the WhatsApp group chat according to Swanky, and did not appear for the rest of the season. A Twitter user said that it was so sad that Queen B had just exited the group chat and she said that it was a “short visit”.

“It was just a short visit. 🥰❤️❤️,” she tweeted.

Another Tweep accused Bonang of bullying “that guy” which is safe to assume was the only person she had conflict with on the show – Luis Munana.

“Askies,” she replied, which means “excuse me” when translated to English.

From the get go Luis confessed to a mistake he made when he was younger – he was working on an event which included Bonang. He booked her accommodation but forgot to confirm so she did not have accommodation while in Namibia. So, she had to fly back home to South Africa.

Luis wanted to apologise, and did. However, his message got lost in translation with Swanky and Bonang was not happy. So, when Luis gave his opinion on another “newbie” Ghanaian-American singer Fantana’s relationship with Diamond Platnumz. Bonang fired at him.

Luis tried to explain himself but Bonang accused him of misogyny and would not hear him out.
