Being a good Samaritan pays off. Just ask Bonang Matheba who received a bottle of champagne for her good deed.

South Africa's media darling was minding her own business in the ladies restroom at Sandton City when she found an iPhone.

While some dishonest citizens might celebrate the universe blessing them with a fancy phone, Bonang decided to do the right thing - that and her net worth is estimated to be R7-million

She took a picture of the phone and shared the image with her three million Twitter followers.

"I found a cellphone in the ladies restroom at Sandton City. I’m hoping someone will call it... but, here’s the wallpaper. If this is your phone, please DM me," she posted.

Bonang is a busy woman and she could have just simply left the phone with security and continued with her day. 

But not our Queen B. She took things one step further and even charged the lost phone to make sure someone would be able to call before the battery dies. 

Her clever thinking worked and someone did end up calling.

"Update: Phone finally rang! Yay! Mom called.... I made her day (curtsy) and she will collect the phone on Monday....(she can’t today or tmrw... Already on the road to KZN)," Bonang tweeted one hour later.

The mom eventually collected the phone and dropped off some "thank you" treats for Queen B.

"Mom collected her cellphone & I scored myself a bottle of chaaaaampagne darling! Pow! Gali gali." 

Let this be a lesson to all, no good deed goes unnoticed!
