House of BNG is the official Miss South Africa Sponsor
Official Host and Celebration Sponsor
Having long associated with Miss South Africa over the past decade, Bonang Matheba first hosted the pageant for its 60th anniversary in 2018. She returned in 2019 when Zozibini Tunzi took the title and was later crowned Miss Universe. The pageant warmly welcomes back Matheba, affectionately known as Queen B, as a host and sponsor.
This year, the internationally renowned media personality Matheba played an even more prominent role. She will be a judge on the Miss South Africa television series Crown Chasers, which broadcast for five weeks on SABC 3.
Matheba expresses her delight at hosting the show once again and says, “The Miss South Africa pageant is one of the biggest television productions in the country, so I am very excited to be hosting the show for a third time this year. It is an institution in this country. I remember gathering around the TV when I was growing up and watching flawless African women like Basetsana Kumalo and Peggy Sue Khumalo being crowned at Miss South Africa.
Passion for the Pageant
From a young girl cheering on her favourites in front of a TV to becoming a judge, the pageant host, and now even one of the official sponsors of this event, is an absolute honour. I love that I can showcase my talent, even more this year and be an intricate part of the show in its entirety.”
“The fact that it is airing on SABC this year means that it is accessible to all South Africans, and that’s very special to me. I started my career on SABC years ago, so this is really iconic to be hosting one of the biggest TV productions in the country on the nation’s biggest broadcaster, giving everyone access to watch and experience it.”
Bonang Matheba, who owns the luxury beverage brand House of BNG, was the first black woman to become a Cap Classique Producers Association member. Of course, the lucky lady crowned Miss South Africa 2023 at the glittering pageant on Sunday will be celebrated with a glass of bubbly from the House of BNG.
