Bonang Matheba is used to people waiting on her hand and foot but there was once a time she had to play assistant to two A-list stars

Before hitting the big time, Queen B hung out with Boom Shaka stars, Lebo Mathosa and Thembi Seete.

They put Queen B – who was probably Princess B at the time – to work by sending her out on a menial errand.

“Lebo Mathosa & Thembi Seete once sent my friend & I to Mega City to buy them shuffle socks. ….I’ll never forget it!.

“Happy birthday Lioness,” she wrote on what would have been Lebo’s 42nd birthday.

Bonang went on to become one of the most popular celebrities in South Africa with a brand that has made her a household name all over Africa.

Queen B’s fans found her story amusing

“Lebo Mathosa & Thembi Seete once sent this Millionaire to do what?” one joked.

Another added: “Now people know you have to serve first to be served.”

Since playing Lebo and Thembi’s assistant for a day, Bonang has built a multi-million-rand empire.

The 31-year-old launched her own bubbly, House of BNG, earlier this year and has plans to launch a show collection as well.

Bonang earns as much as R100 000 to MC a gig, and collects even more from her endorsements with big brands.

While Thembi will always be a legend in the music industry, Bonang is SA’s reigning queen.
