Who is related to whom? Celebs and their famous relatives
The SA entertainment industry is much closer than you'd think. It's more like a family business.
Some local celebrities are well known for their famous family members. Take Tebogo “Pinky Girl” Mekgwe, for example, who starred on the reality show Being Bonang with her cousin, TV personality Bonang Matheba.
