Bonang Matheba has been announced as the host for the upcoming Miss South Africa pageant. This year’s pageant will take place on Women’s Day, 09 August at Sun International’s flagship venue, the Sun Arena at Time Square, Pretoria.
Her House of BNG MCC will also be the official Miss South Africa celebration sponsor.
Matheba was the host for last year’s Miss South Africa pageant which marked its 60th anniversary Diamond Jubilee.
Queen B has a long association with Miss South Africa and was part of the judging panel in 2014 which officially crowned Rolene Strauss, who later went on to be crowned Miss World.
Matheba recently launched her very own luxury beverage brand with the introduction of the House of BNG and its Brut and Brut Rosé Méthode Cap Classiques (MCCs). In her latest endeavour, Queen B has also become the first black woman to become a member of the Cap Classique Producers Association.
There is close to R3 million in prize money and sponsorships for this year’s glittering Miss South Africa pageant, with the winner walking away with R1 million in cash as well as other fabulous prizes. The runner-up will take home R250 000 in cash, and all 16 finalists receive R25 000.
The spectacular event will be broadcast live on both M-Net and Mzanzi Magic.
