MEDIA personality Bonang Matheba’s reality show, Being Bonang, has a new director.
Olwethu Mlotshwa, who also directed Somizi’s reality show, Living the Dream With Somizi, has been appointed as the show’s new director.
This happened just a day after online reports revealed Bonang’s show had dismal viewership numbers.
But according to Olwethu, the show was doing well despite the criticism and less viewers tuning in.
Said Olwethu: “From the numbers we have so far, Bonang’s show is doing well, especially since it’s in a tough time slot.
“I’ve watched reaction to the show closely and think the problem is people had unrealistic expectations.
“They expected the same Bonang they saw on Live Amp, but Bonang is older and different.”
The show has been compared to Somizi’s which had great ratings.
But Olwethu said the comparison was unfair as the two shows were different.
Bonang was not available for comment.
Somizi could not be reached for comment.
