Bonang says 2017 is fast becoming her best year yet

Media personality, reality star and business woman Bonang Matheba has just scored a new gig as a presenter of the first ever KFC Taste Kitchen reality show on Mzansi Magic. DRUM caught up with Queen B minutes after the announcement for a quick chat.

Congrats on the new show! How do you feel?

Well I am very excited about the show. I have been shooting for the past week and it has been amazing. It’s been very hard though.

Hard? How so?

It’s because my schedule has been so hectic, I am the busiest I have ever been so juggling everything has made life busy. But I love to push myself so I am chilled about it.

So why a cooking reality show?

Well I am a sucker for reality show, especially ones where people get to realize their dreams and exercise their passions so when they approached me and said I had done great with Clash of the Choirs and other shows, I jumped for the opportunity.

What’s KFC Taste Kitchen all about?

It’s a show which will show home cooks, not only professional chefs showing their creative skills in the kitchen. So it will be amazing to watch who will land the number one slot.

What’s happening with you and Steyn City, we saw all those pictures you posted there last week?

I am the new brand ambassador for Steyn City and I am excited about it. I will also be their host for an upcoming event at Steyn City.

So basically your life is great right now?

Yes, I am happy, busy and very very content.

What's your favorite meal from KFC?

Streetwise two, the leg and the thigh with lots of source and tomato sauce.

KFC Taste Kitchen will air on Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161) from 14 July to 10 October.

Find Love!
