South Africa’s Bonang Matheba bedazzles in TRUE LOVE’s December cover story

What every woman wants for Christmas? TRUE LOVE has it down to a fine art this festive season with features to both excite and inspire loyal fans and new readers alike. From the bedroom to the boardroom, from the catwalk to the kitchen, this glitzy issue is jam-packed with insightful and entertaining content. It’s got everything – hot health and fashion tips, expert parenting, sex pointers and some gorgeous festive recipes, courtesy of top SA chef Reuben Riffel – all setting the tone for a dazzling December.

Young, beautiful and intelligent, Bonang Matheba takes centre stage on the TRUE LOVE cover this month. “Our in-depth interview with Miss B is a must-read,” says Mapula Nkosi, TRUE LOVE Deputy Editor. “Stunning, ambitious, energetic and inspirational, Bonang is the epitome of a new breed of successful young black women and the perfect cover girl.”

TRUE LOVE Features Editer and writer of the Bonang story, Melinda Ferguson, spent the day with this go-getting 24-year-old-local celebrity. “Behind the controversy and the tabloid headlines, Bonang is an intelligent and savvy mini mogul powered by incredible energy levels and her own personal vision to be the best,” says Ferguson.

“This is probably Bonang’s most candid and revealing interview to date,” she says. “She opens up about the fears that drive her brutal work ethic, the role that the media plays in pitting young black female celebrities against each other and how she handles the all-consuming pressures of fame.”

Watched by millions of television viewers on her weekly Live slot, Bonang has built a solid social media fan base; she is currently one of the most followed local celebrities on Facebook and Twitter. Her media domination has paid off: she was recently listed as one of 2011’s Most Influential Young South Africans in Media by the Mail and Guardian.

Bonang also received the highest honour at this year’s SA Style Awards for the Most Stylish TV Personality 2011. “We can’t think of any celebrity who proves the staying power of young black female talent in the competitive media industry as much as Bonang does,” says Nkosi. “We’re really excited to have her headline our most exciting issue of the year.”

Once again TRUE LOVE has captured the spirit of the holiday season. “In our fashion pages, we celebrate the nostalgic and fabulous 70’s disco diva trends – with floor-sweeping maxi dresses and cheeky culottes,” adds Nkosi.

TRUE LOVE‘s December issue also tackles readers’ complex questions in its health pages – from the quirky to the crucial – TRUE LOVE doesn’t shy away from anything this December. And speaking of crucial, TRUE LOVE examines the effects of social media on premature sexualisation of children and what parents can do about it. It also looks at the stark reality of graduates who struggle to find employment in a tough economy.”

“Our December issue is an absolute knock-out and proves we are a one-stop read for women of substance,” says Nkosi. “We know how to have fun, but we aren’t afraid of courting controversy to give readers real insight into the joys and challenges of being a woman today,” she concluded.
