"Being Bonang" star Pinky Girl, real name Tebogo Mekgwe, had to resign from her IT job after gaining newfound fame from her cousin's reality TV show.
Since making her debut in the first season of "Being Bonang", Pinky Girl has become a favourite among viewers and is busy working on making her way in the local entertainment scene.
Fans of the show were shocked when Pinky Girl revealed she worked in IT and in a recent interview with Move Magazine, she said that she had quit her job after seven years due to the reality TV show.
"I quit when my colleagues realised I was related to Bonang. Some started acting awkward. Especially, my female colleagues gave me a hard time."
The aspiring DJ also went on to say that her former colleagues used to refer to her as Bonang's handbag since she would accompany her to events.
