Do you remember your favourite celebrities’ very first TV gigs? Well we do, and in today’s #TBT, we decided that we’ll scratch files from WAY back and celebrate just how far our celebs have come. Enjoy this instalment of “started from the bottom, now we here”!

Remember the eye-opening drama series, Intersexions? And remember the beautiful and caring Sotho-speaking nurse who was named Seipati? Well, this was our beloved Queen B’s very first acting debut! Bonang appeared in season two of the award-winning drama, much to the surprise and joy of her fans. We absolutely loved this direction for B and wouldn’t mind seeing her pursue this talent again!

If you missed it, check it out the episode:

Pearl Thusi

Pearl Thusi Lovers Plus

Pearl Thusi has always cared for people though! And this Lovers Plus gig is proof! Once upon a time, over 10 years ago, Mama Panther appeared as the face of Lovers Plus condoms! A gig we personally believe is a great platform for anyone who wants to be known nationwide!

Here is an even older throwback box, and Pearl has not changed one bit!

Boity Thulo

Boity Wimpy advert

Remember that quirky girl in the “cheesenator” Wimpy advert? Well, that was Miss Thulo’s first “big” gig, which got her on the road to stardom! Six years later, the advert is still just as cute, and Boity, just as gorgeous! Check it out:


Lebo “Shugasmakx” Mothibe

   Shugasmackx Sugar Smacks Dynamite Diepkloof Dudes

Another hilariously cute throwback! Shugasmakx has BEEN famous! For those who may not remember, Shuga made his TV appearance at the tender age of nine, as part of the cast of Dynamite Diepkloof Dudes! The teenage drama show, which aired in the 90s, revolved around a group of six boys from Soweto, who loved solving crimes on their bicycles!

Nostalgia is heart-warming man, and we love and appreciate the entertainment and laughs our stars have given us during their younger years!

LOL do you remember any of these?

We will never share your email with anyone else.
