Bonang Matheba is the ultimate icon when it comes to fashion trends, timeless style and looking runway ready. Every gown she wears is pure glamour, her hair and make-up is always on point and she even owns a ridiculous amount of designer heels and bags.

Bonang called out a hot shoe trend (the one that looks like Cinderella’s glass slipper) as being a designer knock-off. Alongside a picture of the shoe, she tweeted, “Been seeing a lot of fake Amina Muaddi shoes. I wonder if they’re aware.”

I I didn’t even know these were designer??

In other news – This is Why Cassper Nyovest slapped DJ Fresh in the face
Cassper Nyovest is doing the most right now, his time has been stretched and we don’t even wanna think about his energy resources. So when he canceled on DJ Fresh this week, the rapper was quick to explain that it was down to exhaustion, and not an entitlement.
It wasn’t a good look, we have to be honest. Cassper Nyovest was meant to take an interview on The Fresh Drive and the rapper was a no-show, moments before going on air. DJ Fresh was audibly unimpressed and he took a moment to send some choice words in the rapper’s direction on-air.
