Many young celebrities are showing that there’s more to them than fame, they are slaying not only television channels and social media, but the world of business. We have selected our top five favourites
When we talk about disruptors in the entertainment industry I can’t help but think of the likes of Cassper Nyovest, who has been filling up stadiums, while signing lucrative deals that keep swelling his bank account. I really love how young entertainers have developed a business mindset and take great advantage of their platforms. Below are five celebrities I am inspired by and will be watching out for in 20 slayteen:
Amanda Du- Pont: The 29-year-old Swazi-born actress and model has added to her impressive CV a new online clothing shop that she announced on her Instagram account early this week. Her brand, Tribe Capitol has since received a positive response and many sales since her launch on Wednesday! Be sure to check it out:
Boity Thulo: South Africa’s media darling is also a fitness and wellness fanatic and has extended that passion into a business. She partnered with a pharmaceutical company, Human Limitless to create Boity Toning Support, a pill that helps curb too much appetite while toning your body. Have you tried it?
Thando Thabethe: Radio personality, DJ, presenter and brand ambassador, Thando Thabethe launched her underwear and shapewear collection, Thabooty’s in 2017. She states that she wanted to create something that women would be comfortable wearing, regardless of their size. I can’t wait to see what’s more in store for the bootylicious star this year.
Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa: The actress and mother has recently launched her new maternity range, SE Preggoz in collaboration with South Africa’s renowned designer, Gert-Johan Coetzee. She is indeed a woman of many talents and impressively proves that there is more to her than being Black Coffee’s wife.
Zinhle Jiyane: Popularly known as DJ Zinhle, this talented DJ has had a very successful business venture. From her DJing academy, Fuse Academy, to her online accessory store, Era by DJ Zinhle. There really is no stopping this powerhouse, who recently added to her business acumen, Rocka DJ Zinhle headphones.
