Bonang Matheba is Glamour Magazine's first black local cover star in its ten year history.

Adding to an already great year for her, Queen B’s reign continues with another accolade. This week, fresh from the MTV EMA red carpet in Glasgow, her cover for the December issue of Glamour Magazine was revealed.

This makes Bonang Matheba the first black local cover star in the magazine’s 10-year history.

The magazine has received major criticism for never featuring a black local cover in a country that’s 80% black, when it claims that black females are a core part of its target audience (and with no shortage of worthy black stars to choose from).

But the cover is not the first forBonang. She was also the first local celeb on the cover of Cleo in 2011 and her first cover for Elle magazine followed the next year.
