What we already know is that power couple Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes and Bonang ‘Queen B’ Matheba are loaded, but exactly how much is their net worth?
Bonang, perhaps the highest paid host in South Africa, bought her first house in her early 20s. It only got better from there, as she went on to buy a bigger house, being featured on the show she presents, Top Billing.
She is a Revlon ambassador and was in the past few weeks named Brazilian footwear Ipanema’s Africa ambassador. She also hosts The Front Row, which features Ask A Man, perhaps the only daily segment that trends on a daily basis.
She is also vodka brand Ciroc’s ambassador.
Bonang has also been a Woolworths lingerie ambassador, with her range, Distraction for Bonang, proving to be successful, as it has been going on for years now.
We would never be able to count the number of presenting gigs the Queen B has bagged this year alone, with the most recent being the Afrimas in Nigeria, though the most-talked about was the MTV Africa Music Awards after she was announced as Comedian Trevor Noah’s replacement.
She reportedly bagged R500 000 from the gig.
It does not come as a surprise that she owns a Mercedes-AMG CLA45 and an SUV G63.

Her boyfriend, AKA, is just as busy, if not more, leaving us with questions as to how they make their relationship work. We think they should share their secret.

The All Eyes On Me hitmaker, one of the most sought after rappers of his time, is also one of the highest paid rappers. He once revealed on Twitter that he charged about R90 000 to R130 000 a performance after fans asked him if he was campaigning for the ruling party for money.
Apart from his gigs, his albums have reached platinum status and has recently left his former record label VTH Season to start his own, meaning he can only get richer from here.

If you have been spotting billboards of AKA holding a glass of vodka, surrounded by three women, it’s because he has recently been named Cruz Vodka South Africa’s ambassador.
AKA has also recently bought a house and BMW X6M and spends R9 000 on its insurance.
With all the money rolling in for the couple, Drum Magazine has reported that the couple were valued at R13.8 million combined.
Last year, the Queen B’s net worth was estimated at R7.2 million, while AKA’s was about R6.6 million. But that’s only for 2015 – who knows how much money the couple have made this year.
