Cape Town - Local actress Bahumi Mhlongo looks almost identical to her mom, news anchor Palesa Madisakwane, and we're getting goosebumps. 

Bahumi, who is Idols SA judge Somizi Mhlongo's only child, is paving her own way in the entertainment industry, and has landed a role on the SABC 2 drama Keeping Score.  

The budding actress appeared on the first season of Living The Dream with Somizi, and continues to be part of the main cast.

Scrolling through Bahumi's envy-worthy Instagram feed we couldn't help but notice the striking resemblance the 23-year-old shares with her mother. And looking at the comments, we're not the only ones. 

From their similar facial features to their airbrushed complexion, Twitter users refer to the mother-daughter pair as "carbon copies" and "twins."
