Some of Mzansi's most famous faces, including DJ Fresh, Somizi and Prince Kaybee, have defended Bonang after the star was criticised for the price of her new sparkling wine range.

Bonang this week launched her Methode Cap Classique (MCC) range, called House of Bonang. 

While the launch was filled with glitz, and the bottles look amazing, it was the R399-a-bottle price tag that got many talking. Compared to other local MCCs, which average at between R115 and R150 a bottle, the price is quite steep.

Weighing in on the debate about whether the price is justified, Somizi and DJ Fresh jumped in to defend B.

"As South Africans are quick to... We haven't tasted it. We don't know the quality. We are quick to say 'Aaah the price!'. If you look at what was put together, what is in it. The actual making of it, we will tell. Let us taste before we dismiss it."

DJ Fresh said the price was reasonable.

"It goes back to what I said about my African wardrobe. Why should we make billionaires of Europeans and Americans, when we should be making African billionaires. For me it is deliberate that I am looking for local designers to wear."

Meanwhile, Prince Kaybee told his Twitter followers that he would buy whatever B sold.
