We take a look at 7 celebs who have ushered in the dirty 30’s in 2018. Their 20’s were massive and so we are expecting bug things from their 30’s.
First up we have AKA who turned 30 in January this year.
Followed by Khanya Mkhangisa who posted this gorgeous pic on her 30th.
The caption was just as inspiring.
Birthday Girl God has been generous and blessed me with a life that He curated specifically for me. Even the lows were all part of His great plan and I look forward to all the abundant blessings He still has in store for me, it's only the beginning.
Next up we have Hulisani Ravele who celebrated her 30 years on earth in a truly unique way.
She recognised the significance of 30 in a big way and posted a picture with the following caption:
Meet the special project I've been working on to share with you: 30 Portraits & Poetry.
.Starting tomorrow, I will be releasing a series of 30 portraits reflecting emotions of what 30 years of life experience has brought with it and built in me. Each portrait will be narrated with poetry written by talented writer Sizakele Phohleli, @her_mentality, in a collection she has coined ‘Blues for Hulisani’.
.30 is a big milestone and I wanted to celebrate it in a unique way. Bringing #30PortraitsAndPoetry to life was both exciting & nerve-wracking. I started off by writing a list of 30 emotions I felt my life journey has brought with it so far. That meant stripping myself bare and being vulnerable and comfortable with listing the bad or negative emotions alongside the good, happy ones.
The images that will be released are untouched and unedited. A decision I intentionally made because being famous does not mean that I am perfect nor do I have to be. I accept and love myself; freckles, flaws, scars, stretch marks, and all; and I hope that those seeing the images are inspired to feel the same about themselves too. I had a terrible break-out on my face leading up to and on the day of the shoot, and that’s exactly how I am going to release the images, as they are.
2018 is a big year for me. Not only do I turn 30 but this year also marks my 21st year in the industry. I am looking forward to sharing this special project with those who have followed and supported my career for the past 21 years. I truly hope that this honest introspection and the portrayal of it inspires others to not only do the same but to also be accepting of the results of that introspection. We are all just doing the best we can at this life thing. It will come with its ups and downs, its mistakes, its trials and triumphs, but for as long as you keep putting one foot in front of the other, it will be YOUR story to tell. And it will be beautiful.
.A special thank you to the talented creatives who helped me bring my story and journey to life:
