Bonang wants to start a record label and SA musicians are here for it
Never accuse Bonang Matheba of doing things in half measures. A few years ago, the TV personality and entrepreneur tweeted a picture of a vineyard and said she might buy it. Now, she's the proud owner of the House of BNG.
So when she tweeted a few days ago that she's considering starting a record label, Twitter took notice. "....I wanna start a record label! Lol! My girls think I’m mad," she noted.

Most of the comments were quite encouraging, telling Queen B to go for it. Even some local artists added their opinions and said they would support such an endeavour.
I think it’s a good idea actually. Things just aren’t fair on the streets. Would be great to see more women at it actually.— #RapUp2019 (@Gigi_Lamayne) December 22, 2019

With local artists calling for more inclusivity in the music industry, maybe this is exactly what we need right now.
Meanwhile, Bonang has much to celebrate as 2019 draws to a close. Thanks to the success of House of BNG, she teased that the brand will expand in 2020.
