There is something in the air, water or soil of this land which accounts for the incredible women it produces. Bonolo Mataboge is one. Founder of a fashion house for plus-size women, now an author too – to keep up with this lady you’ve gotta move fast.

Finishing school with six distinctions, Bonolo headed for fashion design school but ill health saw her only complete one term. Undeterred, by the age of 19 she started a fashion line, AfriBlossom. With that established, she began another career – writing
romance novels featuring big, beautiful women.

Years ago, this young talent read the words - “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer”. She never looked back.
