Time changes a lot, in fact, if anyone gave you a picture of yourself from five years ago you might beat them up.

To think of an image of yourself before you had good quality cameras, makeup or even camera filters is one very hard thing to do. It is no surprise that there are those who would not even identify themselves.

In this article, you will get to see what some of your favourite celebrities looked like a while back. Take time to reflect on how far you have come from and surely you will be thankful, that's a guarantee.

1.      Miss Geekay


Miss Geekays dabbles in radio and TV presenting and she leaves no stone unturned to make sure that she delivers her craft impeccably. The star has given fans a glimpse of how she looked in 2017.

Khumo has now grown into her body and shows a more voluptuous look in comparison to how she looked back in 2017.

2.      Alicia Ferguson 


The mother-and-daughter’s close relationship is one that Connie has let us into for years now. The two are responsible for the sometimes comical, sometimes touching and sometimes just downright slayage dance videos. Every other week the two have spoilt us with Ali taking her mother on a dance journey, which depending on the style of dance, Connie will either be goals and keep us wondering if her second try will be better. 

In June 2020, Connie shared throwback images of her youngest daughter, and goodness – she was cute as a button!

3.      Lesedi Matsunyane


Connie’s eldest daughter also makes the list! The mother-of-one definitely his famous family’s genes from a young age, as she showcased her boisterous personality in images from her childhood – shared by Ali. Whist Lesedi might have the personality of her family, now that she is grown, she plans on creating a life away from her mother and father. 

“This industry is not a basket of roses. Rhythm City is a big deal to me because of its platform and its reach to the South African audience, especially the youth. It also came at a time when I had taken a hiatus to focus on casting, so it reaffirmed to me that I’ve still got it”, she told TshisaLIVE.

Yes, she's the daughter of very connected parents, Connie & Shona Ferguson but Lesedi didn't get any privileges or gigs because of them and their popularity.

“Funny enough, even though there will always be nepotism claims, I’ve definitely built up a repertoire where, even though my families are linked, my craft still speaks for itself. That in itself is a blessing.”
