We were about to declare 2016 the ‘Black Coffee Year’, but it seems Bonang ‘Queen B’ Matheba is not about to let this year pass by without making an impact. The Queen B took to Instagram on Friday morning to share that she was the new African brand ambassador for Ipanema, taking over from Giselle Bundchen.

“Yay!! Proud to announce- taking over from Giselle Bundchen, I’m the new African Brand Ambassador for Ipanema… last night was MAGICAL!! Here’s to many more… 🌺🌞🎄☺️👑🐝 #Launch #MyIpanema @ipanemasouthafrica,” she wrote.

Unfortunately, the applications are now closed.
