Bongani Fassie, the son of late South African singer Brenda Fassie, has gained attention after his appearance on the reality show “I Blew It.” In the episode, Bongani candidly discussed his financial troubles, attributing his downfall to excessive spending and drug addiction.
The latest episode of “I Blew It” featuring Bongani Fassie has caused a stir on social media platforms. He shared details about his extravagant lifestyle, which involved lavish spending on drugs, alcohol, luxury clothing, and expensive cars.

Bongani revealed that he squandered millions of dollars on drugs, money he had received from his mother’s estate. Recently, he has expressed his desire to gain full control over his mother’s estate.

Users expressed shock at his admission of spending R4 million on drugs, criticizing him for not taking responsibility for his actions.
