  • Beáta Bena Green and Tamaryn Green.

The Greens lineage clearly has some form of pageantry and modeling DNA within their bloodline. South African actress Beáta Bena is an actress, model and entrepreneur.

  • Wayde van Niekerk and Cheslin Kolbe.

Not only are these cousins a product of the Kraaifontein community but they are also sports heroes for many of our South African youth. With both being symbols of success in their respective sporting industries, it is clear that the factor of speed and sports is something that may be in their blood as they were raised by their individual parents who were also sports champions. Both these cousins are champions who represent our country nationally on international grounds.

  • Thapelo and Seputla Sebogodi.

When they say an apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree then they are definitely referring to these two. For the longest time many people were unaware that these two are related. It was until they were both cast members of the award winning South African local series and telenovela The River acting alongside one another that people noticed.

Thapelo is the first son of the legendary thespian Seputla, who has featured on multiple South African award-winning shows. The two have also featured in theatre works together.

  •  Khosi and Mangaliso Ngema

Khosi is the daughter of veteran actor and entrepreneur, Mangaliso who has appeared on Generations, Lithapo, Vehicle 19 and others. It is evident that this father and daughter combo share the same passion and admiration for the film industry.

  • ProVerb and Lerato Mvelase.

ProVerb is one of the prominent faces of the South African talent search show Idols SA, he is also a businessman and an artist.  People are often unaware of the relations of these biological siblings simply because they do not share the same last name, as they share a mother.

The genes of performance and exceling are notably in their DNA as Lerato is an award-winning actress and a performer who has debuted on shows such as Home Affairs, Isibaya, Justice Served and many others.

  • Oros and Lunathi Mampofu.

The Mampofu siblings – Lunathi and Oros –  are faces that are no stranger to our screens as they both take on the film industry. Many may confuse the Mampofu twins, Oros and Prince, however, Oros is the one that is more of a public figure than his twin brother.

Oros is a professional MC and actor who rose to prominence after he appeared on SABC 1’s Skeem Saam. Lunathi, the twins older sibling is easily a fan favorite with her versatility as she has appeared on The RiverIngozi, Fatal Seduction, Unmarried and now stars on 1802: Time Defies Love.
