Mbalie Dhlamini aka The Extra Melanin:

So, that ‘Extra Melanin’ may explain the additional E in Mbalie, but it’s also the name of her ‘reality web series’ and YouTube channel! Here’s the trailer:

This clip, in which she introduces her mom to amapiano, has 77,000 views:

You can also follow her on Twitter:

And Instagram (eat beforehand – there’s plenty food!)

Mbali Mbongo aka Flowers:

Going one step better in the amapiano stakes, her almost namesake Mbali has an amapiano track out!

Follow her on Twitter:

And Instagram.

Nthabiseng Sebota aka Nthabi:

Looking at the highlights on Nthabi’s Instagram, the question is: what hasn’t she done?! She’s in this Nando’s advert:

This 1st For Women ad:

And countless more! Born for TV much? She’s also on Twitter:

Tshegofatso Bopape aka Ashanti:

Tshego is less active on social media, but a look at her Instagram profile reveals that she was a guest speaker at a Phenomenal Women Hangout earlier this year:

Noxolo Sibanyoni aka Noxy:

Noxy hasn’t tweeted in a while but she is active on Instagram – and we learned that she has a hot beau:

And a beautiful (big-haired) baby!

Paballo Shai aka Pablo/Pabi:

Ah, Pabi – the first to go... UPDATE: This is her Twitter page – and over on her Insta, we learned that she’s a twin!

Gontse Makgoba aka King Culture:

The second to go, and busy on social media!

But from the moment we spied him, we knew he looked familiar… Of course, he was one of two runners-up to Tshego Koke in the 2017 MTV Base VJ Search!

Siphesihle Sangweni aka Lamza:

Lamza is active on Twitter and Instagram – just not very! Of more interest, on his Facebook he’s punted previous TV experience on Generations: The Legacy and Rhythm City.

Damian Ngema aka Dames Dawg:

Damian has pages on talent-seeking sites Starquality and Castseekers, and he posts A LOT on his Twitter (but not so much on his blog). But ladies: his Instagram is where it’s at!

Ellis Nkogatse aka Trap Monate:

Trap Monate is a “trap star” with multiple tunes out – including one with Nasty C! He’s also involved with a bitcoin company called Jozicoin, which he’s plugging on his Twitter:

His Instagram is rather quiet though…

Kabelo Sepanyane aka “Ratz”:

Well, damn – Ratz was hard to find on social media! We know he’s friends with Pope from season 1 and #UltimateSummerVibe, and they share a Twitter account. On their shared Instagram, they’re punting a new track from their Six.Nine project!

Isaiah Letsoalo aka Bomba eCute:

And finally, early fave Bomba. He’s doing his bit for Mbali over on Twitter:

And head to his Instagram for loads of eCute!
