On social media

I actually just hired someone to be part of Bonang Matheba’s social media. I needed someone to handle the online content and social media for my online reputation because I know that the world is leaning more towards that space. From today, I will be blogging even more.

On being an IT girl

Some magazine said that Bonang has surpassed the idea of being an IT girl with where I am right now, but I don’t think about that. I think about the level of my work. Right now I’m paving it forward. I’m at the point where I’m celebrating other women and there’s no competition. So yeas, IT girl, I don’t think about that. I was an IT, but now it’s about helping other girls become IT girls.


You need to go through hell to realise how good you have it. I’m grateful for all the mistakes I made, the people I’ve met and the relationships I’ve had. I’m a better person now.

Slikour gave Bonang some advice on taking care of AKA since he has made a lot of sacrifices for him. For the full interview, visit
