The South African entertainment industry is difficult to crack, but things can be made easier if you tackle it with your family alongside you.
Here are some entertainment personalities you probably didn’t know were siblings. What we also found interesting about these siblings is their business-minded approach towards the entertainment industry.
The Masina siblings have done well for themselves in South African entertainment. The three brothers – Naked, Ramesh and Fortune, were at the forefront of the local hip-hop scene when it began gaining momentum in the early 2000s. Fortune even released a hip-hop compilation album titled Abomrapper 1, which received rave reviews from local hip-hop heads. His brother Ramesh also had a successful run in the mid-2000s with songs like It Rocks.
The Naked DJ, who is probably the most visible sibling in entertainment currently, has his own show, titled Audiogasm on Metro FM, and is part of BET’s Man Council talk show.
The youngest Masina siblings Ntando and Hlelo Masina were the twins to listen to on YFM a couple of years ago. Although their e.tv reality show Blame it on Fame failed to garner any success after its first season, the twins seem to be doing just fine. The twins are also founders of their N.G.O initiative, Campaign for Girls.
Rethabile and Katleho Ramaphakela have been in the entertainment industry for years now. Rethabile’s first TV gig was back in the 90s when she was one of the presenters on M-Net’s youth show, KTV. For those who might not be in the know, she was also the voice behind V-entertainment. Now you know the face behind the “Seriously” tagline.
We then got introduced to her brother Katleho, who played the role of Neo on e.tv’s student drama -Backstage. The siblings, along with their older brother Tshepho, are the co-owners of Burnt Onion Production, which produced SABC 1’s My Perfect Family.
We also recently found out that MTV Base presenter & YouTube sensation – Farieda Pharoahfi Metsileng is related to Fatima Metsileng who is married to Rhythm City actor – Mduduzi ‘Suffocate’ Mabaso. Fatima also works in the entertainment industry but behind the scenes.
Remember these former Craz-e presenters Muso and Morena?
We need not even explain that they’re siblings, the resemblance says it all. Although we rarely see older brother – Muso in the entertainment scene, little brother Morena has become a well-respected musician in the industry.
The two also have a younger brother.
