It is no secret that South Africans are talented, so we were not surprised when our local celebs dominated the Forbes Africa top 30 under 30 list.
The fourth edition of the African Forbes top 30 under 30 list was released recently, and a lot of South Africans made the cut.
So, Briefy.co.za decided to take a look at five of the most famous South Africans that made the list.
1. Cassper Nyovest
It is no surprise the 27-year-old made the list. Thus far, Nyovest had quite the successful year- he released a couple of songs that topped the charts.
And, his music video for Ksazobalit lit social media up.
2. Nomzamo Mbatha
The Tell Me Sweet Nothings actress deserves a spot on the list. Not only is she a talented actress, she also helps other people where she cans.
In 2017, the 27-year-old was named the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHRC) ambassador.
3. Nasty C
At only 21-years of age, Nasty C earned himself a spot on the Africa Forbes top 30 under 30 list.
This week Nasty C made headlines when he hijacked a Drake song to freestyle a sick rap on its melody.
The 29-year-old made history this year after he became the bestselling artist in South Africa.
As Briefly.co.za reported previously, Kwesta made history with his third album, DaKAR II, which reached seven times platinum status by exceeding 210 000 copies sold.
5. Thuso Mbedu
The award-winning actress joined Generations: The Legacy this year. The 26-year-old is best known for her role in the Emmy nominated telenovela Is'Thunzi, which Mail & Guardian dubbed "one of the most compelling television programmes on South African television".
Other South Africans who made the list include: Fashion designer Orapeleng Moodutle, singer Shekhinah, Poet and author Koleka Putuma, Visual artist Simphiwe, fashion designer Rina Chunga-Kutama, actress Mapeseka Koetie-Nyokong, visual artist Tony Gum, producer ANATII and South African born American actress Sasha Pieterse.
