On Friday Bonang Matheba, also known as Queen B took to Social Media to say, “Making Being Bonang Season 3 was one of the worst working experiences of my life! Glad it’s ending. Remind me to tell ya’ll why one day.”
“It’s time to say goodbye, Being Bonang ends tonight. Join us on 1Magic TV (103) or Showmax Online, thank you,” she posted on Twitter Friday.
To everyone that was part of the journey of her reality series she says, “Thank you all the moments, we’ve enjoyed this ride! [I] Can’t wait to see what’s nex[t].”
MGOSI.co.za reported last month that the real cause was ‘red tape‘ by the SABC which is alleged not to take it lightly when their personalities work for other channels.
Last month Bonang Matheba announced that she will not be shooting season 4 of her reality series, Being Bonang. The announcement came after she announced ‘big plans’ with the SABC1 in 2020.
MGOSI.co.za then revealed exclusively that Being Bonang is being shelved for her initial home, SABC.
When we contacted her (then), as much as she told us she was busy she alluded to the developments that she won’t be shooting season 4 of her reality show.
And our deep throats reliably told us that it is part of the SABC1 deal that has led her to trash her own reality show.
“By now everyone is well aware that the SABC doesn’t really allow its personalities to work with the competition. And that also depends on what they put on the table to have you exclusively working for them and who you are also is counting,” alleges our source.
The source also claims that depending on what they offer you, they can have you exclusive but if they can’t really afford what you demand they can allow you to do other things as long as there’s no competition in such instances.
An insider at the states broadcaster (then) told MGOSI.co.za that she got a “very sweet” deal and she had to shelve Being Bonang to ready herself for the broadcaster.
SABC spokesperson Vuyo Mthembu refused to comment on the email we sent her questioning if the SABC is behind the shelving of Being Bonang.
