- Bonang is trending on social media after she was spotted as one of the guests attending Mary Twala's funeral

- Social media users debated fiercely on why some felt it important for Bonang to express her condolences in public
Bonang Matheba is trending on social media after Mzansi saw her attend Mary Twala's funeral. Social media users did not expect her to be in attendance after she did not publicly acknowledge the passing of Somizi's mother.
Bonang is the top trending topic on Twitter after she was spotted at Mary Twala's funeral. Many social media users were surprised as they did not expect her to attend. This comes after Bonang did not publicly send Somizi any messages after the news of his mother's passing broke.
The pair have had a rocky friendship and many thought that this could be the reason for her radio silence. However, Bonang proved everyone wrong when she attended the funeral, dressed in solemn black and grey.
Twitter user Vusi_TheBoss said:
"I still cannot believe that Twitter people expected Bonang to send a condolences message to Somizi when she actually has his numbers and most importantly they are friends and she went to the funeral. The entitlement!"
"Y'all bashed Bonang for not tweeting her condolences. Instead, she pulled up to support Somizi in person. Nithini ngok?"
"Bonang's presence is way better than a tweet."
"People think tweeting and posting pictures is better that being physically present for someone... People on this app talk too much. I bet they have nothing valuable to say now."
"Real friends have your cellphone number."
"Celebrity obsession nonsense!!!"
