One of the South African famous fashion influencers is Bonang Matheba. She is a TV presenter turned influencer that I totally adore. I was elated that she was coming to Lagos State, Nigeria for her book launch. Fashion Influencer Bonang Matheba is a style influencer and high achiever. I love her personal style as it is both chic and edgy. Although, I am not a fan of edgy styles except for run-way street style. Her everyday look is one to emulate. So, here is all that you need to know about her book and the event.
South Africa is another African most developed country. This country is on my bucket list of places to explore. Asides from the fact that is it a beautiful country. I also love their sense of fashion. Fashion influencer Bonang Matheba is an example of how the South African style is chic. I couldn’t wait to meet her as she is one of my favorite fashion influencers. Her book Bonang: A-B is all about her growth journey. In this book, she shared her journey into TV presenting. We all watch successful people and want to be like them in minutes.
In this book, you get to know that success takes time. You need to be confident. Also, you need to burn the midnight candle. She also gets intimate about her family life. Although her parents are divorced, she lived a balanced life shuttling between the two homes.
Bonang Matheba’s story is very relatable to me. This is because many have walked the short route to success yet they failed woefully. She also talked about embracing failure. There are so many life lessons you can learn from failing badly. I know, no one wants to fail. However, if you don’t fail, how will you grow. She shared the story of how her online fashion brand failed even before it started. Now she is a successful wine connoisseur in South Africa.
I didn’t miss a chance to take a picture of my mentor. Of course, you can have mentors from a distance. Was it an afternoon well spent, of course? I even got the book autographed at this book launch. I hope someday I will get to meet her again.
What do you love about South Africa? Do you have it as part of your bucket list? or Na, you will pass? Me, I can’t wait to explore this country, try their dishes and visit the Safaris. I will definitely share my experience on this blog.
