UPDATE: Bonang's team has responded saying that only a limited amount of bottles (1400) had the unfortunate typo on the label. After the MCC sold out within hours of the launch a reserve batch, which contained the error on the label, was quickly released to keep up with demand. On the day of the launch of House of BNG, the hashtag #HouseofBNG had over 1bn impressions online.   

Cape Town - Local entertainer Bonang Matheba recently launched her new méthode cap classique and although she’s been having quite the glorious week, a fan was quick to point out a typo on the bottle label.

Taking to Twitter a fan shared a snap of the BNG sparkling wine in which they circled the incorrect spelling of the word "elegant."

"So Bonang has a typo in her Brut Rosé . Why doesn't she ever proof read," the user captioned the tweet.

This is not the first time Bonang has been publically scrutinised for grammatical errors in her work. When she published her first book from A to B in 2017, she was trolled for the many typos and grammatical errors that were found in her book.

So this time it comes as no surprise that the 31-year-old media mogul could care less about the critics and their attention to a minor spelling error.

"An 'e' isn’t an 'a." They discussed it all day," Bonang tweeted in response to the backlash.


In another tweet, Bonang shared a snap of her new MCC collection which she revealed she would be sending to "them… so they can see the 'e' in REAL LIFE!" before cheekily ending off the tweet with one of her greatest lines: "Cheers, daaaaarling!"

As to who the 'them' is that Bonang was referring to, well we’re not too sure either.
