WATCH | In  ' Young, Famous & African'  Mbau, Nadia Nakai's Criticized For Their Wigs And Bad Hair By Black American Celebs

South African reality TV stars Khanyi Mbau and Nadia Nakai are being dragged mercilessly by Americans on social media for their hair and wigs in Netflix's new show 'Young, African & Famous.'

The first episode of the reality show, ' Young, Famous & African' , premiered on Friday to rave reviews from social media. However, Americans weren't as impressed with the show and trolled the stars of the show for their apparent bad hair and poor wigs.

South Africans Khanyi Mbau and Nadia Nakai have been singled out for making poor hair choices.

Posting on TikTok, American comedian Champbailie, who has over 44,000 followers, posted a video in which she said:

"I'm currently watching this show on Netflix called Young Famous and African , and I'm going to say I don't care about the backlash. I don't care, but I'll say it.

"What's up with those wigs?" These are just the worst wigs I have seen in my life. Now I'm only into the first 12 minutes of the first episode, but I'm horrified and traumatized.

“I will never wear a wig again, ever again. Excuse me, yes, my feelings are hurt. Now that Love & Hip Hop there is nothing in this show. Because Love and Hip Hop is bad enough with hair. But that takes the cake.

She then posted another video in which she focused on the wigs worn by Khanyi Mbau and Nadia Nakai in particular. She added,

“These are beautiful women with bad wigs. Yes, I said it. We need to stop doing shows like this, including “Love and Hip Hop”.

The videos received a lot of engagement from American and African women who lamented the wigs worn on the show. Some women have argued that Africa has good wigs and that the wigs shown on Young, Famous & African are not representative of the continent.

However, some South Africans were unhappy with the criticism and hit back at the Americans, accusing them of being mean-spirited and superficial. Some even went so far as to accuse critics of self-hatred


Below are some of the most interesting comments from the video about the bad hair and wigs worn by Khanyi Mbau, Nadia Nakai and company on Netflix. Young, Famous & African.

I am Juliani

With everything good and bad on the show, there had to be talk of bad wigs! I wear human hair and I saw nothing wrong


Facts 🤣 Khanyi's blue wig on the train literally made me cry. Like a girl…. No one told you it was slippery?! Your friends are garbage.


I thought the same thing when I saw the trailer last week. I really want to know who is in charge of putting these wigs on their heads 🤣

Thabo Mhlanga

who appointed you Minister of Wigs??? lodzadze uyanya yati!!!

Tasha Mable

Black people hate black people and you expect other nations to embrace us when we have so much hate in us.

Katiku Fay

Nadia's wigs were actually the best in the whole show that y'all hated for no reason

Tekky Lee Bonza

They should learn a thing or two from Bonang M. She may be known by her long straight wigs, but they seem to come from her scalp 👌🏼


Well, that's disappointing to say the least, because I'm sure they can afford good quality wigs and find stylists who know what they're doing. .
