WATCH: Bonang Matheba plays ‘Slayed or Shade’ with Essence Live

After being announced as E! Africa’s red carpet correspondent alongside Maps Maponyane, Africa’s very own Queen B went to the US where she visited E! headquarters to get a clearer understanding of her new role – as one does.

During her time in states, Bonang did a photo shoot as one of her duties as Revlon’s global ambassador and also did some media rounds after which she hosted a meet and greet for her fans in the US as well as those who have come across her on social media and in her Times Square billboard but did not really know who she was.

One of the media rounds included a stop at Essence Magazine’s Essence Live, where she played a game of ‘Slayed or Shade’ in which she had to judge red carpet fashion looks alongside Glamo and Marlo Hampton. I couldn’t help but giggle at how the host Dana Blair announced Bonang’s name. I know the whole world will know how to pronounce it soon.
