Who would have thought a platform like YouTube could get you the recognition you need and lead you in the right direction for your career to take off? Definitely not us!

In 2018, it’s all about the numbers of subscriptions and followers you have for a brand to take notice of your expertise in a certain field.

Some of the influencers that have hit it big are:

The 21 year old now prides herself with just over 61 000 subscribers on her Youtube channel Mihlali N. The beauty blogger has since worked with brands like Nivea, Bobbi Brown and recently Inglot.

 

Lasizwe

Known for his over-the-top personality, it’s hard not to notice Lasizwe. His bubbly and quirky way of speaking has earned him an ad with popular soft drink brand Fanta. Now, the Youtuber has his own radio show on Touch HD.

Miss Acalaca


Her bouncy curly tresses got her recognised by global hair care brand Dark n Lovely. Miss Acalaca’s love for playing with her ’fro will surely open many doors for her in the hair industry.

Lulama Wolf

There’s no stopping her go. Luluma’s love for fashion has rewarded her with the opportunity to travel across the world. Recently the stylist worked with international brand H&M on a campaign that saw her sharing tips and tricks to achieve summer looks all the way from Corsica.
