OkayAfrica's 100 Women celebrates African women who are making waves, shattering ceilings, and uplifting their communities.

Bonang Matheba, aka “Queen B,” is a South African radio personality, TV host, radio DJ and a global brand ambassador for Revlon cosmetics.

She has won many awards for her radio personality and for slaying the sartorial game. In 2015 alone, she received the “Best South African DJ” award at the Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards and the “Style Icon of the Year” at the SA Style Awards. In 2016, after a trip to Brazil, Matheba was named the new African spokesperson for Ipanema Sandals, taking over from Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen.

This visionary's image is well curated and compliments her business acumen. Matheba is as much of a fashion icon as she is South Africa's favorite media personality. With 1.5 million followers on Instagram and almost two million followers on Twitter, she indeed reigns supreme as South Africa's Social Media Queen.
