Bonang Matheba has announced that she is terminating her relationship with her management group.
Queen B shared the news on Twitter Spaces.
Bonang started her live chat by announcing that she has some “disturbing news” to share.
“Over the last few years, I have been in a business relationship with a management group to represent my brand. 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,” she began.
The 34-year-old then announced that she had fired the group.
“Today I announce that I have terminated that contract with them and they no longer represent me or any of my business ventures.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.”
Bonang promised to revert back over the next few days with more updates about the group’s “unsavoury behaviour”. The live chat ended abruptly, leaving the scores of people who joined – including KFC’s admin – hanging.

Thousands tune in to Bonang’s live chat
More than 15,000 people tuned in to listen to what Bonang had to say.
Bonang hinted about a big announcement in several tweets last week. “…seems I’ve been quiet for far too long,” she wrote in one tweet.
Many of her followers guessed that she would introduce a new flavour to her House Of BNG MCC Brut range. Bonang took to Twitter again on Monday to reveal that she had something important to get off her chest.
“… time for everyone to know… you’re a liar,” she wrote in two separate tweets.

Bonang’s Twitter Spaces announcement was not the big news her fans expected. Many were disappointed that the live chat ended as they only got a small taste of the tea she was spilling.
Yhu Bonang 😩 This isn’t the tea i was expecting!

C.S.A Global responds
Celebrity Services Africa (C.S.A) has identified itself as the management group Bonang is talking about. She joined the global media and talent group in 2017.
“There is no merit in these scandalous allegation, we look forward to the day in court with @Bonang; exposing the false and half-truths that she has been spreading,” C.S.A tweeted.
C.S.A says it has sent Bonang legal letters.
“For the record, @Bonang Ms Matheba is currently in breach of multiple contracts with various clients as she has been derelict to these brands and indeed her own for the past six months.”
