Once upon a time, Victor Borge wrote, “Laughter is the closest distance between two people.” This phrase rings true to many of us and we can all agree that laughter somewhat brings us closer to others, whether we’re joking with our partners/ friends or laughing with total strangers on the internet or at a comedy club.

A creative way and fun source of laughter for a lot of us is memes. Memes have become a whole language on their own and are often used to communicate feelings, expressions, moods and reactions. 

Through the years, some of our fav personalities, athletes, musicians and actors have seen their faces become memes online. We decided to compile a list of three of our fav memed South African celebs

Somizi Mhlongo

No one better to start off this list apart from the flamboyant, king of drama - Somizi Mhlongo. The media personality was definitely born to be an actor because not a week goes by without him providing ‘meme worthy content’. His most famous meme was the one of him in the shower - just Google to understand.

Mihlali Ndamase

This beauty and lifestyle influencer is another celeb on our list. Even though the queen is constantly serving flawless looks, the Youtube sensation simultaneously serves up meme worthy content.


Comedian and Youtuber Lasizwa follows his bestie Mihlali on our list. With his constant rib cracking skits and entertaining personality, there was no way he was missing a spot on this list. Lasizwe has so many memes out there that he often uses his own memes.

Who else belongs on this list?
