In 2018, 21st Century Media gained notoriety for promoting a “Women in Media” conference that ended up being a hoax. Hollywood A-listers Taraji P. Henson and Halle Berry were touted as speakers, and tickets cost R1,250 each.
After learning that Berry and Henson wouldn’t be attending, South African media star Bonang Matheba withdrew from hosting the “Women in Media” event.
