Rea Gopane, the vlogger made famous for being sued by one of South Africa’s biggest stars, said he does not need luck for court.

The vlogger landed himself in trouble with media personality Bonang Matheba last year after he claimed in one of his podcast episodes that she introduced her ex-boyfriend, rapper AKA, to cocaine.

Following his claims, Bonang hit back at the vlogger and served him with a R500K lawsuit.

He was instructed by her legal team to retract his statements and issue an apology on his social media platforms in the form of a video and a letter.

Rea did as instructed and recorded an apology directed towards Bonang. However, the issue of whether or not he paid the star the sum she demanded has not been revealed.

Now Bonang has hinted she is not yet done with the vlogger and that they are set to go to court soon.

Taking to Twitter, she said: “good luck @reagopane”.

In her mentions, tweeps said they thought their legal tussle was over, to which Bonang replied: “Courts are open. Time to rock.”

Taking to Twitter, the vlogger was unfazed by Bonang's tweet and is ready for a face-off.

“The incomparable Bonang Matheba is still mad she took a shot and missed last year. Thanks but I don’t need your good luck. See you soon, mom.”

This is not the first time Rea has been unfazed by Bonang. In October last year, after his initial attack on the star, he took aim at her following news that she was in a battle over the ownership of the House of BNG brand.

Reacting to the news in an episode of “Everything SA Music TV”, Rea said that Bonang was not smart, and that all she had behind her were her fans.

“She has all that energy for me and her business is not even right, but you want to flex to your fans. Bonang is not as smart as she pretends to be.

“All she’s good at is getting her fans to attack people, she’s been doing it for a couple of years,” he said.
