Meet Mzansi Celebrities You Didn't Know Are Siblings in Real Life

South Africa is blessed with a number of really attractive celebrities, but if you dig a little further, you will discover that our celebs are descended from a number of equally attractive families.

Even while having a famous person in your family might be advantageous, we believe that it is already a hardship to have someone famous in your family. Having a brother who is just as known or even more renowned than you, on the other hand, might be challenging since you will always be compared and will lose more of your privacy as a result.

The South African entertainment industry looks to be operated like a family business, thanks to the presence of these superstars who are in fact blood relations. Consider the following scenario: a regular family reunion with the addition of four well-known celebrities to the guest list. What a lovely group of people. Some South African celebrity relatives are obvious, whilst others are difficult to recognize unless they are pointed out to the public.

1. Anele Mdoda and Thembisa Nxumalo

It is the sisterhood that brings Anele Mdoda, a 37-year-old talk show host, and Thembisa Mdoda-Nxumalo, an award-winning actress and television presenter, together. Anele Mdoda is the younger of the two Mdoda sisters.

2. Nomzamo and Zamani Mbatha

These two siblings have reached to the pinnacle of the world of show business. In addition to her work as an actor, Nomzamo is well-known for her roles as the face of Neutrogena, a PUMA SA Ambassador, an Audi Ambassador, and an L'Oreal Paris Hair Advocate, to mention a few of her accomplishments.

Zamani Mbatha is the brother of Nomzamo Mbatha, a South African actress, television personality, businesswoman, and human rights activist who is equally well-known for her work in the field of human rights. Zamani Mbatha was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and grew up in Johannesburg. The Forbes Africa 30 Under 30 list included her in the year 2018 as a rising star. Despite the fact that Nomzamo is just two years older than Zamani, the two of them attended Bechet High School in the same year.

While working on the set of Mzansi Magic's telenovela Isithembiso, her younger brother, Zamani Mbatha, who also happens to be an actress, has been enjoying success in the industry.

3. Dineo and Manaka Ranaka

Among the many accomplishments of Dineo Ranaka and her sister, Manaka, are their contributions to the entertainment industry. It seems like they've taken over every media, from radio to fashion to television and everything in between.

4. Hlubi Mboya and Kuli Roberts are two of the most talented women in the world.

Kuli and Hlubi are incredibly close, much as the Mdoda sisters are close to their mother and father. Hlubi is a South African actress who is a little more reserved than her older sister, who is also a well-known actress in the country.

Kuli brings spice to the airwaves by voicing her strong opinions and isn't afraid to ruffle a few feathers in the process. She can be heard on Kaya FM.

5. Boity and Thickleeyonce are related through blood.

By marriage, Boity Thulo, a television personality, rapper, and entrepreneur, is connected to Thickleeyonce, whose actual name is Lesego Legobane, a plus-size model, photographer, and content producer, who is a plus-size model, photographer, and content creator.

Her outspokenness on the significance of feeling comfortable in one's own skin has garnered her a significant following on different social media platforms, in part because of her message of empowerment.
