We are loving this fun cover from Zen magazine Africa with one of South Africa’s biggest media personalities, Bonang Matheba. Read the editor’s note sharing an insight on how the cover was achieved as well as what to expect from the digital magazine this month.
Bonang Matheba’s story is an excellent example of how determination and drive can lead you to fulfilment of your dreams. Back in the July, we reached out to Bonang to get photographs for her cover and interview feature. Of course, we were flattered when she agreed to be involved, and so began scheduling the month; how it would look like and finally deciding on the cover image. That simple description in no way does justice to the amount of time, effort and diplomacy that Bonang’s team put into making this whole cover happen. This month Zen Magazine gets exclusive access into Bonang’s life. A proud African, born in South Africa, lover of fashion, brand ambassador for Revlon Cosmetics and Woolworths Lingerie Designer “Bonang For Distraction”. Bonang is an inspirational woman whose intelligence and imagination has made her South Africa’s IT girl. Learn more about her journey which started at the age of 15 and find out where it all changed for her.
On the subject of beauty, we have an amazing submission in this month’s issue called ‘Bold Lip Looks’ which was sent in by UK based photographer Sophie Abbott of SNA Photography. This month’s biggest beauty statement is a rich, bold lip, so don’t be left behind ladies!! For more on the cover visit Zen Magazine.
