I was losing my soul, Bonang saved me by taking my ‘it’ girl status – Nonhle Thema

Dating rappers and chasing celebrity culture is a thing of the past for the mother of one.


In an interview with Power FM, Nonhle Thema spoke about how she felt relieved that she no longer had ‘it’ girl status.

Thema made headlines for the wrong reasons a few years ago when she had a public meltdown after taking to Twitter to boast about her lifestyle, making millions and being famous.

“I was done with this ‘it’ girl thing when Bonang really stepped up. I was like woah, she saved me! Because honestly I was at the pinnacle of the industry as a female, especially when I did my reality show.

“I was the go-to person then, I also [fed the media frenzy], I liked dating rappers, I was everything, not knowing that I was losing my soul through it all because I became someone I wasn’t really. So I was really happy when the ‘it’ girl status was relinquished from me.

“The old me is gone. I have no desire to sit and interview rappers or sit and interview celebrity culture because I’ve been there,” said Thema.
