Bonang Matheba name is its not just an ordinary name, is a brand itself but her boyfriend AKA does not care about it and its worth nothing to him.

Ever heard about celebrities who ‘ruined’ their brands’ and how it affected their careers? Well, sometimes celebrities get paid big money to for using their names and faces to promote a certain brand or endorse it. 

On Friday afternoon AKA stopped us in our tracks when he announced that he and Bonang had split.

"Sad to announce that myself & @bonang_m have broken up. We tried guys. "

Later he posted this. "Guys, Don't ever love a woman more than she loves you."

Meanwhile, after radio silence from Bonang, she went on as if life was normal. She was talking about events and retweeted people. You know, the brand machine was in place.

The only time she referred to what was going on was when someone made fun of a news network running the story that was a "lie." Bonang commented on the gif.

Remember, this isn't the first time the couple have had a public spat only to get back together later. AKA once deleted all the images of the two of them together on social media.
