Matheba also explained that South Africans unlike African Americans are a bit more reserved and humble, saying Ubuntu is very important to South Africans.
The House of BNG owner also spoke about her awkward meeting with Charlamagne who was very impressed with the life Queen B lives. The two met during the Global Citizen Festival last year.
When asked whether she is married, Matheba said no even though she was spotting a large ring on her finger which Dr Envy pointed out. Matheba explained though that the ring is only a stop nonsense.
Furthermore, she spoke about why she is moving to the States and said that many Africans aspire to also make the American dream even when they made it in their home country.
