Media personality, Bonang Matheba, has topped the Twitter trends list after revealing that she is parting ways with her management team which she didn’t name.

According to the House of BNG owner who opened a Twitter Space on Tuesday afternoon, she has terminated her contract with the company and is investigating them for possible criminal conduct.

I have instructed my lawyers to investigate the possibility of criminal conduct by the company and its representatives

“Today, I’ve got disturbing news. Over the last few years I have been in a business relationship with a management group to represent my brand,” she said.

“I put my trust in them and gave them stewardship over brand Bonang to build and support it across all mediums including entertainment, fashion and entrepreneurship. Today I announce that I’ve terminated that contract with them and they no longer represent me or any of my business ventures. Furthermore, I have instructed my lawyers to investigate the possibility of criminal conduct by the company and its representatives. I will revert over the next few days with an update so that others can be aware of what I consider as their very unsavoury behaviour."

The management company in question is believed to be CSA Global and they took to Twitter to respond to Bonang's allegations saying that they look forward to a day in court with the star. 

"For the record, Ms Matheba is currently in breach of multiple contracts with carious clients as she has been derelict to these brands and indeed her own for the past six months," the company tweeted. 

"We are currently awaiting a response from Bonang's lawyers on legal letters already sent. There is no merit in these scandalous allegation[s]; we look forward to the day in court with Bonang, exposing the false and half truths that she has been spreading."
