If You’ve Watched “Young, Famous & African,” These Memes Will Crack You Up

March 22, 2022

So after all the teasing, the Netflix original reality TV series, Young, Famous & African has finally dropped on the streaming platform, and now that we’ve watched it, we can confidently say that it’s well worth the hype. The show, which follows a crew of affluent African media stars as they work hard and play in Johannesburg, South Africa, has all the ingredients for a delicious bingeable reality series:

  • Hot people
  • Extravagant displays of affluence
  • A sprinkle of mess
  • Loads of drama

On that note, we’ve created eight memes that only people who’ve seen the show can understand and find hilarious.

Sherlock Holmes no do pass Khanyi because she’s always planning on how to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner with someone in an attempt to find out their personal information.

Swanky just came on the show to wear cloth, support Annie, and live fancy. And you know what? We stan!

Our theory is that Zari always shows up late to hangouts with the other cast members so she can make grand entrances befitting of a boss lady.

One of the funniest things about this show is how every single one of them is looking for sex/love/romance in one form or another. Even the ones who are already in relationships.

Khanyi, as the fashion icon that she is, was informed she would be starring on the show and said, “I am determined to give early 2010s Nicki Minaj a run for her money,” and proceeded to do just that.

The cast of Young, Famous & African 🤝 Yoruba people.

All of Africa needs to come together and send Annie on an all-expense-paid weekend trip to a spa so she can get a deep tissue massage to help with the back pain caused by carrying the entire show on her back.

All we can think of when watching the show is how stressed out the staff of those restaurants must be when they start fighting and hurling insults at each other.

Young, Famous & African is available to stream on Netflix
