Larger than life media personality Bonang Matheba made history when her 2 part reality show, A Very Bonang year broke SABC1’s viewership record, congratulations Queen!!
Zandile Nkonyeni, Head of PR: SABC TV Channels said the premiere of the reality show special pulled in a record number of television viewers.
“We are excited to announce that “A Very Bonang Year” reached a record-breaking 1,86 million viewership in its first episode of broadcast.
“This is unheard of for any broadcast platform in South Africa for a celebrity-driven reality show genre and at a time when SA viewers have more reality TV content to choose from.
“As a channel, we had intentionally stayed away from celeb reality and for our first attempt at this format, we are proud of this achievement as it further confirms a great decision the channel took in acquiring such great content.”
The media personality painted the streets of Instagram with happiness and gratitude as she told her fans about the amazing news.
