On Friday 13 July 2012, Bonang Matheba posted a tweet “@Bonang_M: So Drum Magazine put me on their cover without even interviewing me…. LOL! I actually have never in my life….” which led many to think that Drum Magazine has fabricated a story.
Don’t understand why they didn’t call each other. Such things on twitter.
Drum only replied on Saturday 14 July
DRUM Editor Makhosazana Zwane-Siguqa’s response to the Bonang’s DRUM cover issue
I have noted with much disappointment some comments posted on Twitter and Facebook regarding our cover star Bonang Matheba.
While Bonang Matheba did not avail herself for an interview I personally met with her legal representatives to discuss the merits of our story.
We also ensured that her response to the allegations made against her was published in full and that it met both legal and ethical requirements.
DRUM’s values are integrity, professionalism , respect and ubuntu .
I therefore urge you refrain from making misinformed judgement or posting derogatory remarks against Bonang Matheba orThemba Nkosi ( DJ Euphonik) on DRUMS’s social media platform. We will remove your post.
I look forward to continuing our meaningful conversations on all issues affecting us, our communities and society at large in a constructive and respectful manner.

Well honestly I don’t know whose lying or whose telling the truth, I used to like Bonang a lot ; but lately she is associated with a lot of DRAMA which will damage her brand sooner or later.
I hope DRUM Magazine and Bonang solve this matter privately, hate it when people fight on twitter.
Your Thoughts? Whose Lying?
