The striking resemblance between some Mzansi celebs and their offspring has taken the term “mini me” to a whole new level.

Judged by their looks and well-built physiques, it’s quite evident that some of our celebs have benefitted from great genes. And by the looks of it, their offspring are reaping the rewards of those genes too.

From the likes of AKA and daughter Kairo, to self-proclaimed Queen of Bling Khanyi Mbau and daughter, Khanz, these media personalities show off their strong (and fully functional) genetics through their children.

Have a look below:
AKA and daughter, Kairo

Baby Kairo has stolen the hearts of many South Africans with her adorable features and the cute outfits she is often spotted wearing on her parents’ social media pages. And it’s no mystery where she got her looks from because the toddler looks just like her dad.

Azania and daughter

702 talk show host Azania Mosaka recently featured on our Black Don’t Crack list for her youthful looks even in her late thirties. If her genes are anything to go by, her daughter who is a carbon copy of her does not have to worry about ageing.

Khanyi Mbau and daughter, Khanz

Talk show host Khanyi Mbau gave birth to a younger version of herself. Her daughter Khanz with former businessman Mandla Mthembu is just a spitting image of her.

Kwesta and daughter

Hip-hop musician Kwesta’s daughter inherited more than just his thick eyebrows. The adorable toddler looks just like her dad.

Lulo Cafe and son

As cliched as it is, you can’t help but want to say “like father, like son” when you see a picture of Lulo Cafe and his son. The little man makes it easy for us to imagine how his dad may have looked like when he was a tiny tot.

Palesa Madisakwane and Bahumi

Chin dimples have never looked so good. Actress Palesa Madisakwane (right) is another local celeb who gave birth to a younger version of herself. She shares her daughter Bahumi with media darling Somizi Mhlongo.
