2     Charne Grobler

This lip-syncing beauty has about two million followers. She produces some insane bedroom choreography lip-syncing to popular backing tracks. In a recent interview with YOU, Charne revealed her surprise when she got the call that she’s been nominated for a 2020 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award. “I was, like, nomination for what? What did I do?” This humble star has a nomination under her belt, so it’s bound to be exceptional content.

3     Karl Kugelmann

Local hotty Karl is a dead ringer for Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder and capitalises on his charm to get the ladies swooning. He’s racked up more than 2 million followers thus far, and has probably broken a million more hearts. Feast your eyes on this one.

4     Cassidy Nicholson

A favourite account among Capetonians, this actress found herself bored during lockdown and decided to use her time constructively – satirising Constantia moms. Cassidy is keeping followers entertained with her hilarious lockdown diaries from the perspective of a Constantia mother. If you don’t think it's funny, you’ve not seen this!
