#BeingBonangS3: Has Boity Replaced Lorna?

Season 3 of Being Bonang hit the screens last night and as usual, it was a trending topic on social media. The show follows the day to day chronicles of Bonang Matheba.

What has remained prevalent is that Bonang has mostly kept a small circle of friends throughout the previous seasons including characters such as her cousin and best friend, Tebogo 'PinkyGirl' Mekgwe and a few regular acquaintances. However, viewers were treated to a new feature in Bonang's close circle - Boity Thulo.

However, we couldn't help but notice that she is no longer in the broader scheme of Bonang's life. With the introduction of Boity, could she have replaced Lorna Maseko for good?
