L’ORÉAL PARIS ADDRESSES AMASSADOR RUMOURS REGARDING BONANG MATHEBA AND THUSO MBEDU

 

Earlier this month, ZiMoja reported that Bonang Matheba was gunning for Thuso Mbedu’s position as the brand ambassador for L’Oréal. A source spilling the tea to the publication reportedly said Matheba and her team could not resist and contracted L’Oréal for the gig.

However, this seems not to be the case. According to Briefly News, in a statement, L’Oréal has dismissed those claims.

“L’Oréal Paris is aware of recent reports that a new spokesperson for sub-Saharan Africa will be announced. The brand affirms that actress Thuso Mbedu remains the official sub-Saharan Africa spokesperson for L’Oréal Paris since the partnership was announced last year,” the statement was quoted as saying.

L’Oréal also shared that they have partnered with several other influential women recently in South Africa including seasoned broadcaster Leanne Manas, former Miss South Africa 2015 Liesl Laurie-Mthombeni, Anlia Etzebeth and Thembi Seete.

“The brand looks forward to maintaining the established relationships that it currently has,” the L’Oréal statement was quoted.
