Is this South Africa's most stylish couple?


I've been following this couple ever since their wedding. Now, if you don't know Rochelle ‘RhaRha’ Nembhard and Yannick Ilunga, whether as individuals or together, go stalk their Instagram accounts immediately. RhaRha is a creative director and has done really interesting work to change stereotypes about women, Africa and culture. Yannick also known as Petite Noir, works as a musician, record producer and artist.
