TV and radio personality Bonang Matheba was yesterday announced as the first South African brand ambassador for Revlon.
Matheba, 25, joins the ranks of international ambassadors for the cosmetic brand, including US actresses Olivia Wilde, Halle Berry and Emma Stone.
In celebration of yet another feather in her dazzling cap, a new billboard featuring Matheba was unveiled in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, yesterday afternoon.
She said: “I think it only hit me about five minutes before I saw the billboard – there were tears.
“I’ve known for almost six months. I’m proud that I was chosen out of thousands of girls.
“I’ve been approached by three brands before, but I wanted something close to what Bonang was about – women are at the core of what I’m about, and Revlon shares the same values.”
