South Africa's media darling Bonang Matheba is ready for yet another closeup. Netflix released its trailer for 'Young, Famous and African' and season two features none other than Queen B.

Bonang was trending at number one on Twitter shortly after the trailer dropped on Tuesday. 'Queen B' also featured in the top 10 of the trends list.

The 35-year-old will only be making a guest appearance on the reality show but the mere thought of her making an appearance caused a frenzy online. 

"I am Bonang Matheba. An all-round bad a** Tshwana girl," she says in the trailer. 

Queen B told her Twitter followers that she had fun shooting the show.

Khanyi Mbau, Nadia Nakai, Andile Ncube, Naked DJ, and more are back for season two.

Another user added: "Bonang getting her own edit cut at the end of the trailer is so iconic."

'Young, Famous & African' is Netflix's first original reality show from the continent.

"This glitzy reality series follows a group of young, affluent and famous media personalities from across the continent who come together in Joburg on a quest to make new connections, find love and possibly rekindle old flames. These jetsetters will see their relationships and patience tested as they mingle with the who's who of African entertainment," the season one synopsis read. 

Season two will no doubt be a lot more entertaining with Queen B's appearance.
