South African media personality Bonang Matheba has officially launched her new app.
Matheba, who is the new face of Cell C, released the new app in collaboration with the mobile company, called “Bonang by Cell C.”
The app is only available for Android users and will be available for iOS users at a later date.
The app is a free download but will require users to pay R60 every month after a one-week free trial.
What is special?
According to the info on the app, people will “get exclusive behind-the-scenes access and be part of her inner circle. See the world through her eyes and get the best stories, photos, and videos directly from Bonang”.
“Be the first to know all the latest news about Bonang’s career and glamorous personal life; discover her favourite spots to eat, shop and hang out; learn about the products she loves the most; get inspired by her personal advice and tips; enjoy her favourite videos, handpicked for you; receive her latest social media updates, all gathered in one place; ask her any question and get a personalised answer.”
To subscribe to Bonang by Cell C App, you will be charged R3 a day and R50 a month subscription fee for prepaid and postpaid customers respectively. Non-Cell C customers will pay a subscription fee of R60 a month. The first seven days are free.
Though some, such as Pearl Modiadie, have congratulated her on her new deal, some on Twitter have argued the Queen B is definitely living in her own world, where there is no recession. Being her fan is expensive, they argued.
They say the app is a waste of money, as she already has a reality TV show, a tell-all book and social media accounts she uses to update her fans.
“Bonang is pulling a Bushiri The Major 1 stunt with this R60 p/m app.. after A to B, failed to do the Job. Baqede wena Queen B Banyis,” said one of her followers.
