First she took her man, rapper AKA, from under her nose.

And today, Sunday Sun can reveal Bonang Matheba also took DJ Zinhle’s number-one make-up artist, Muzi Zuma.

Muzi used to make DJ Zinhle look beautiful when she was still dating AKA.

Several sources close to the situation said Bonang started working with Muzi last month.


“Muzi went with Bonang to New York last month. He posted updates on social media and didn’t care who saw them.

“His friends said he saw a chance and ran with it, but we all know the situation between Zinhle and Bonang.

“Muzi always worked, but his make-up skills were put on a national pedestal when he started working with Zinhle, who endorsed him. This is plain betrayal,” a source said.

Another source said: the local entertainment industry is small and people need to stop getting personal and focus on work.

“Who doesn’t want to work with Bonang? She’s the biggest star on the continent and anyone would kill to work with her.”

Muzi won the 2014 Simply Blue crown, which is the title of one of Joburg’s longest-running gay clubs, Simply Blue.

Last year, Muzi came out and revealed he has a child as a result of indulging in booze at a friend’s birthday party as a youngster.

Bonang was not available for comment, but her PR manager Phumza Nohashe said: Bonang uses different make up artists as per their availability.“She doesn’t work with one specific person. She supports Mzansi talent.”

Yesterday Muzi said: “I’m in Joburg to make money. Bonang is inspiring and motivating and I have he has learnt a lot from her.”

Asked when last Zinhle booked him, he said: ‘Zinhle hasn’t booked me since I started with Bonang. She has a problem and I don’t care.”

Zinhle’s manager, Nomdeni Mdakhi, asked the SunTeam to send her an email. She didn’t respond to our enquiry at the time of going to print.
