#FlashbackFriday: Youth Day Special

No matter how big they’ve become, your favourite stars all started out small… Take a trip down memory lane this Youth Day for the funnest #FlashbackFriday

Words: Tshiamo Seape

Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah might call New York home, but he’ll always be the bright-eyed boy from South Africa to us – just look at those dimples.


Cassper Nyovest

An unassuming Casper Nyovest is almost unrecognisable. From Refloe to Cassper – SA’s biggest rapper has come a long way since school days.

Bonang Matheba

Smiling from ear to ear the queen of SA entertainment is as endearing today as she was in this photo. Keep shining, Bonang.



AKA wasn’t always the king of cool. Back in the day, Kiernan was just another kid looking to the future. Who would have known his would be so bright?


Maps Maponya

Maps is one of South Africa’s media darlings. His entertainment empire includes TV, film, and fashion; not to mention he is the heir apparent to football royalty. Before all of that, he was just another round-faced baby.


Pearl Thusi

In short time Pearl Thusi has made the transition from local presenter to an international actress. Seen here in her school photo, she is must one of the girls.



The King of African Hip Hop, Kwesta before the blonde hair and heaps of swag was just another struggling artist. We couldn’t be happier with the transition.
