A Dive Into the stars of Young, Famous and African

Young, Famous and African is the most raved about reality show right now. I think part of the reason of the hype is that it it purely African, African starts in an African setting, and we do love to support our own.

Now let's get down to the stars of the show, in the words of the queen herself, the people who matter.

1. Khanyi Mbau

She is a South African actress, host and Artist. Whether you call her the Queen of Bling, Gold digger or Yonce, you can't deny that Khanyi is one hell of a woman. With her unfiltered bold remarks, her unconventional ways of parenting, I mean her 15year old daughter lives by herself, to her crave to stir drama we all love to hate her. One thing we all agree on is that the show would be a total letdown without her.

2.Jeremiah Ogbodo

Popularly known as Swanky Jerry, he is a Nigerian celebrity stylist. With his calm and supportive nature, Swanky proves to be the friend we all wish we had. He supports his friends adamantly and isn't afraid to tell them off when in the wrong. He is a breath of fresh air in the show.

3. Annie Macaulay-Idibia

She is a Nigerian actress, model and presenter. She is also the wife to the famous musician 2Face/2Baba Idibia. Annie spiked a series of mixed reactions while in the show. While we love and respect that she is family oriented and wears her heart on her sleeve, her relationship with 2Baba had us cringing so hard, from her begging him not to cheat on her again to her licking his bald head, it was definitely more than we bargained for.

4. Andile Ncube

He is a South African TV host and Producer. With his charming smile and enchanting personality. He did make the ladies fall in love with him.

5. Zari Hassan

She is a Ugandan business woman and socialite. Her appearance in the show led to a series of mixed reactions by the viewers. While we appreciate how bold, outspoken and fashionable she is, her preying on Annie's insecurities didn't seem right at all. As the saying goes, Queens should fix each other's crowns not tear them down.

6. Nadia Nakai

She is a South African rapper and songwriter. With her extroversion personality and her chemistry with Diamond we all loved watching her.

7. Diamond Platinumz

He is a Tanzanian business man, recording artist and dancer. From his unresolved feelings with Zari to his view on women, he was all over the place the short period he was on the show.

8. Naked DJ and Kayleigh Schwark

From their unnecessary drama to their unconventional relationship, sorry to say but I do feel like the show would be done without them.

Let me know who your favourite star in the show was.
