Bonang was supposed to be living it up in New York City right now, but the pandemic put her plans on ice…

It looks as if nobody was immune to the damaging effects of Covid-19 last year. Whether you were a famous celebrity or a regular citizen of Mzansi – the pandemic affected us all in one way or another.

The Queen B was all set to move to the USA last year but 12 months on, she’s still in sunny SA.

Bonang’s USA move will still be happening according to her manager

At a time when the likes of Trevor Noah, Nomzamo Mbatha and Phumzile Sithole are tearing it up in the USA, it seemed for a long time that the next person who would be joining them in the States would be Bonang Matheba. The move was hinted at for some time, and rumour had it that she was even apartment shopping in New York City.

However, 2020 didn’t quite play out in the way that most people had hoped and it looks as if even Bonang herself had to put the move to the States on ice. In fact, a recent social media post has hinted at frustration at being “stuck”in South Africa.

All4Women reached out to Bonang’s management to find out if the Being Bonang star would still be moving to the States or of the move had been called off. Davin Phillips, who represents the star revealed that the move was definitely still on.

He said her move is “Indeed, very much still on the cards, she has a lot of projects kicking off.”

Americans “love” Bonang!

It’s a good thing the move is still on because Bonang and the USA looks to be a match made in heaven. Not only does the presenter have the work ethic to be able to succeed in the “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” but she has also built up a formidable fanbase in the States.

Bonang has several high-profile admirers in America including from Texas, where she hosted the Equinamity Awards Gala back in 2019, and in New York City where she made a famous appearance on The Breakfast Club after being invited by Charlamagne Tha God.

The only question we’re waiting to have answered is: once Bonang does move to the USA, will she ever come back?
