It’s Bonang Matheba’s world and we are all just living in. The TV personality won the coveted award of ‘African Influencer of the Year’ in this year’s E! People’s Choice Awards.
The American awards show recognises people in the entertainment industry and the winners are voted for by the general scale. This is the first year that the event will take on a global scale and that African performers will be nominated.
About the win, Bonang said, ‘I am honoured to be the first to receive this award, especially as the world turns its attention to the African continent. Africa is special and unique and I want to congratulate all my fellow nominees who make our continent proud with their amazing talent.’
The other nominees in the category included Wizkid, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Cassper Nyovest, Yemi Alade, Diamond Platnumz and Minnie Dlamini-Jones.
The E! People’s Choice Awards will take place on 10 November 2019 in Santa Monica, California.
Bonang posted her thanks on Twitter with the post saying ‘We won!! Oh damn… thank you so much to everyone who voted!!! This is wild….next stop, Santa Monica – California!!’
