The drama started days ago when folks took to Twitter to share screenshots of the book; many people called the prose laughable, while others noted the factual and grammatical errors.
Following the outrage, the publishers BlackBird Books have now started recalling the book and has promised to republish a better version.
“We can confirm that the book has been recalled, with this recall process having already started. This will be a nationwide recall,” the publishers said in a statement as published by Timeslive, adding, “In response to recent commentary on Bonang Matheba’s book, From A to B, we acknowledge that mistakes happen; it’s how we deal with them that matters. We promise you a new and improved version very soon. If you aren’t satisfied with your purchase and want to return your copy to us, we will send you a brand-new edition as soon as it is available,” read the statement.”
One of those who shot darts at the media guru includes her former bestie Somizi who she slammed in her book.
