I Reviewed the Wigs in “Young, Famous & African” So You Don’t Have To

March 25, 2022

Once upon a time, an insane Christian book that claimed the devil created football as a tool to destroy humanity trended on the internet. I did the dirty work of actually reading and recapping it. The article was so popular that I decided to make my recaps into a weekly series named “So You Don’t Have To, where I find batshit crazy pieces of media (books, movies, etc.) and recap them for your pleasure.

Today, I will be reviewing the insane wigs on the Netflix reality show, Young, Famous & African.

To quote the iconic SNL character, Stefan, Netflix’s new reality series, Young, Famous & African, has EVERYTHING.

  • Attractive people
  • Hot mess
  • Insane outfits
  • Boss ladies
  • Pointless drama
  • Themed-parties
  • Extravagant displays of affluence
  • An incredibly disturbing relationship that the producers decided to make the main storyline of the show because they knew it would get people talking.

But that’s not what we’re here to talk about. If you want to experience these things for yourself, go watch the show. It’s streaming on Netflix. Get your entire life.

What we’re here to discuss today are the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad wigs on the show. Specifically, the wigs that made an appearance on the head of cast member, Khanyi Mbau.

Now, I love Khanyi. She’s my favourite member of the cast because she gave everything a reality show start is supposed to give.But you you know what she gave that we didn’t want? Thise wigs. It’s clear that her hair and makeup people hate and don’t mean her well. You want proof? Keep reading.

This wig isn’t awful but it does look like a hairy beret, and that bothers me.

This wig looks like cold Indomie.

The bangs on this wig are in distress.

This wig looks like it was laid with engine oil.

This wig looks like a refurbished Karen wig.

This is a mop moonlighting as a wig.

This is Halle Berry’s wig from X-Men 1.

This wig looks like it tried to be Angela Bassett’s wig from Black Panther but failed.

This is Halle Berry’s wig from X-Men 3: The Last Stand.

This wig is a small forest rodent. That’s why it was trying to flee her head in this scene.

Another X-Men wig?! THIS is Famke Janssen’s lace front from X-Men 3: The Last Stand!

This wig is a hat.

Last and the absolute worst

This one greatly upset me and my homegirls because not only was she sitting in the midst of friends and behind-the-scenes crew members of the show, she was also sitting next to her boyfriend, and NONE of them could tao her and say, “Hunty, your wig is trying to escape. Please, hold it down.”

Nawa.
