Bonang Matheba is on the March cover of Forbes Africa and couldn't be more excited.
The issue celebrates Africa's 50 most powerful women and Queen B shares the cover with three other trailblazers from across Africa.
Bonang thanked Forbes Africa for the honour through a statement shared by her manager.
She said, “It is a great honour to be on the cover of such a prestigious magazine with other esteemed women from across Africa at such an important time for women in our continent’s development.”
Bonang talked about the many challenges that women in Africa are facing with gender based violence being at the top of the list.
B said she believes the calibre of women included in the Forbes were exactly the type needed to solve the problems that Africa is facing.
She said, “We have numerous challenges, including gender-based violence and girl’s education, but I believe that we as empowered African women can play an incredibly powerful role in creating robust, harmonious and successful future societies."
Forbes Africa also honoured other Mzansi icons this week.
It held an event to celebrate notable African women in various fields in KwaZulu-Natal yesterday.
The event was hosted by Pabi Moloi and DJ Zinhle was awarded the Forbes Woman Africa Entertainer Award.
