The 18-month-old Durban toddler has over 26 000 Instagram followers and has made over 150 posts. Makhosini Nhlelozikathixo Maseko aka baby_makhosini is a hit on social media obviously. His poses are dope for his age – and celebs and Black Twitter are eating out of the palms of his tiny hands.
This toddler no doubt inherited a love for the camera from his mother, Sithelo Shozi, who hails from Umkomaas. She’s a fashionista and final-year political science student.
Recently Sithelo told The Independent that her son is a natural in front of the lens. “Makhosini loves the camera and knows all the angles,” she said.
“When I was pregnant I was posting outfits for expecting mothers and after Makhosini was born people were eager to see him. I started posting pictures of him and it got out of control, with even memes appearing about him and everyone sharing his pictures. He's so young, I pulled it back a bit so I had more control of what pictures were going up. His pictures go through my Twitter account, but he does have his own Instagram account. Lots of moms also have accounts for their children so they started following him and inboxing me with questions, such as where he gets his clothes,” she said.
“He’s very confident – he loves attention and knows exactly what he wants. When I’m laying out his clothes he’ll take out a jacket or a pair of jeans he wants to wear. It seems he knows it's important to me and he definitely has a flair for it. It's something I enjoy and when it comes to style, I think it's something you either have or you don't,” she added.
