Despite the sombre mood that enveloped the country last week, fans are excited that some of Mzansi’s fave celebs have bagged nods for the upcoming E! Entertainment People’s Choice Award
It was recently announced that Bonang Matheba, Cassper Nyovest, Minnie Dlamini, Davido, Diamond Platnumz, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid and Yemi Alade have been nominated in the African Influencer of 2019 category.
B shared the news on social media and asked her army of fans to vote for her.
Of course, the B Force got into formation and flooded their queen’s TL with votes.

However, some fans bemoaned the fact that they had been blocked by Bonang and swamped the TL with apologies and asked their queen to pardon them so that they could vote.
During a previous interview on Real Goboza, Bonang explained that she does not entertain negativity and would rather block a fan
“They call me Block-ang, I don’t like to argue with people, I don’t like dilo tse snaaks, loosely translated, ‘I don’t entertain negative energy’, I would rather block you. Those things really hurt me…I have 3.3 million [now 3,5m] followers on Twitter, I’ve got 2.7 million [now 2.9m] followers on Instagram, and 1.7 on Facebook, imagine all of that, so I have to try to keep away ‘not so nice’ from me as much as possible.
“Sometimes when you’re quiet, people think you’re stupid, so every now and then, I need to remind people that I’m nice but I’m not stupid, and I don’t take nonsense.”
People be saying “I can’t vote for Bonang” because she blocked me…… so she blocked you for scrolling down her timeline? Minding your business? Bonang is not sick in her head…. she won’t block you for nothing . well done Bonang Matheba. block their Ass (s) #BonangMatheba pic.twitter.com/tmyktuNNcl
