If you haven’t heard yet, Netflix has released a new Pan-African reality series – and it’s packed with major star power. Young, Famous & African follows the lives of Khanyi Mbau, Nadia Nakai, Annie Macaulay-Idibia, Swanky Jerry, Diamond Platnumz, 2Baba, Naked DJ, Zari The Boss Lady, Andile Ncube, and Kayleigh Schwark, as they embark on an adventure of glamorous events, love interests, blossoming friendships and fiesty feuds.
The show gives us a glimpse of our favourite stars as we’ve never seen them before – raw, unfiltered, and a real-life look at how they navigate social dynamics. Of course, this leaves room for an influx of public opinion and scrutiny (but purely for entertainment purposes), as they break down each drama-filled episode.
With a few jaw-dropping confrontations and unexpected character revelations, Young, Famous & African is currently trending on the Top 10 on Netflix SA, as well as stirring up multiple colourful conversations on Twitter.
Here’s what some viewers had to say:
I’m watching this Young Famous and African reality series and I’ve discovered that being beautiful is a problem. All these ladies had a problem with Zari because she’s the most stunning. They felt intimidated by just her presence. I still don’t see anything wrong she ever done

Andile has to be my favourite character on Young, famous & African.
He’s a well spoken, put together man, who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go for it, even if it’s his friend’s baby mama lol.#YoungFamousAndAfrican

Young, Famous and African on Netflix is something else. I love how they say the most horrible things to each other, argue and then move on immediately like being completely offensive is normal. I get my life!! 😂
