List of local celebs who are related (PHOTOS)


Here some of SA's famous people and those to whom they are related.

The SA entertainment industry is much closer than you'd think. It's more like a family business.

These local celebrities are related, some of them are close cousins and grew up together and others are twins.

Some, however, are truly mind-blowing to learn, like comedian Trevor Gumbi and one-half of the Kings of the Weekend, DJ Sphectacula. The two are brothers and Gumbi is the oldest.

When I look at this face, it reminds me that our father was here. That we once had a dad. On earth. Walking. Breathing. Alive. Next to me. I loved you from the day uMa told me you were on the way, from when uGogo named you after me, Zamani. My responsibility on this earth has always been to give you a better life and better education. I hope uSkuta is watching and proud of the man you are growing to become. I know uManatu is. . God keep you. Because I would die without you. I’ve changed your Diapers (very stinky!) and now change your suit jackets. I hope one day I walk you down the isle and give you away to someone that is deserving of you. My prayer is that you become the best version of yourself, more than you ever imagined. Take over the world and buy me a private jet! 😏😏🤪😂 I love you so much baby brother. You give me reason to work even harder. I love you baby. Happy 21 years. Happy Birthday 🎈 @zamani_mbatha
