Local presenter Bonang Matheba's latest venture into the wine industry has landed her on BBC News.
On her Instagram page last week, the "Being Bonang" star announced that BBC News would be airing a segment over the weekend that featured her MCC brand, House of BNG.
Speaking in the segment, Matheba talks about how black women in South Africa are large consumers of both MCCs and champagnes. She further talks about how she didn't think she would make her own wine, also naming the many other ventures she has done - including her lingerie line with Woolworths.
Champagne plays such an important role in her life. Bonang said that for many young people having MCCs or champagnes at a celebration is a sign that you've made it.

House of BNG is the first local MCC that was founded by a black woman and has been flying off the shelves since its debut in March.
Matheba's House of BNG was the official MCC sponsor at President Cyril Ramaphosa's inauguration and at the Miss SA pageant. She also had her own House of BNG lounge at the Vodacom Durban July.
