The number was confirmed by Zandile Nkonyeni, Head of PR: SABC1 TV Channels as he says;
‘A Very Bonang Year‘ gave viewers a look into the media personality’s plans for her global expansion and her next steps in her career as she dominates as a businesswoman.
“We are excited to announce that “A Very Bonang Year” reached a record-breaking 1,86 million viewership in its first episode of broadcast.
“This is unheard of for any broadcast platform in South Africa for a celebrity-driven reality show genre and at a time when SA viewers have more reality TV content to choose from.
“As a channel, we had intentionally stayed away from celeb reality and for our first attempt at this format, we are proud of this achievement as it further confirms a great decision the channel took in acquiring and partnering with the show”, said Nkonyeni.
The second episode of ‘A Very Bonang Year‘ will air on Saturday, August 8 at 6pm on SABC1 so viewers can continue to follow Bonang’s life from when she received her E! Entertainment award to her house hunting and also her interview on The Breakfast Club by Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy.
