Bonang Matheba’s fans were disappointed after the star’s reality show, Being Bonang aired for the last time on Friday evening. Bonang also confirmed that there would be no second season of her show, shortly after the finale aired.
The show, which premiered in July on Vuzu Amp has reportedly been one of the channel’s most popular series, despite not making DStv’s top 30 most-watched list, according to the Broadcast Research Council’s Television Audience Measurement (TAMS) figures.
Taking to Twitter, Bonang confirmed that there were no plans for a second season of the show, and thanked fans for their support.
No Season Two… But, a big THANK YOU to everyone's who's loved & watched my show… Means the world to me. 💕 #BeingBonang

Bonang’s management explained that it was never in Bonang’s plans to do a second season.
“You would need to speak to the channel but the whole idea was for her to have one season of the show,” DNA Brand’s Sylvester Chauke said.
He explained that the decision was made by Bonang, but poured cold water over speculation that it had anything to do with viewership numbers.
“The show has done extremely well and there has been a phenomenal growth on the channel. The channel was extremely happy with the show but you will have to ask them for more information about the show,” he added.
