[RPG] Can a character take both the great weapon fighter and frenzy bonus actions on the same turn


If my character goes into a frenzy rage and as a bonus action I make an attack that reduces a creature to 0 HP, does the great weapon fighter feat activate allowing for a additional attack?

Just wondering because the attack for the feat is a bonus action.

A character can only take at most one bonus action in their turn.

Bonus Actions, PHB p. 189:

You can take only one bonus action on your turn, so you must choose which bonus action to use when you have more than one available.

Frenzy, PHB p. 19:

you can make a single melee weapon attack as a bonus action on each of your turns after this one.

Great Weapon Fighter, p. 167:

On your turn, when you ... reduce a creature to 0 hit points with [a melee weapon], you can make one melee weapon attack as a bonus action.
