Television personality, radio host and businesswoman Bonang Matheba is set to make history as the first South African celebrity to have her own set of emojis.
Bonang’s publicist Seo Mothibe told TshisaLIVE that the emojis are in the final testing phase and her team are confident of a successful launch next month. She added that they were also in advanced talks with the likes of Google and Apple to launch the emojis on the Google Play and Apple app stores.
“Bonang has been hard at work on this and other projects since she left Metro FM. She has hardly slept and has been incredibly hands on with every part of this project. She’s been exhausted. She is so excited for it to launch but wants to make sure it is perfect before releasing it to the public‚” Seo said.
“There are similarities between Bmojis and Kim Kardashian’s Kimojis but more than that we just felt it was the right time for that market to be brought to South Africa. Bonang trends for whatever she does. We saw that again this week when she trended for releasing just one of these emojis. She will make a splash,” Seo said
“I am super-thrilled to be launching my very own South African-inspired emojis. I created the Bmoji by Bonang to ensure that my fans and supporters always have a piece of me wherever they go. My Bmojis are fun, sassy and at times, very funny, a preview of my life and everything I get up to when I travel,” said Matheba
