The current decade will be coming to an end in just a few short weeks and scores of people, including some of SA’s biggest stars, are taking a trip down memory lane

The ‘Decade Challenge’ trended again this week – this time people were asked to share pictures of themselves at the start of the decade and the end of the decade.

Celebrities such as AKA, Anele Mdoda and Rosette Mogomotsi happily obliged.

Bonang Matheba and DJ Zinhle were thrown into the mix.

Here’s a look at what Mzansi’s A-list stars looked like 10 years ago…

Rapper AKA has come along way from 10 years ago. He is older and wiser but still making waves in the hip hop industry.

Some of AKA’s fans shared pictures from the first show they attended.

Bonang Matheba

Bonang Matheba’s ‘Decade Challenge’ picture caused a stir on social media. Some Twitter users thought Queen B looked nothing like her old self, with some once again claiming that she’d lightened her skin and had plastic surgery.

One of Queen B’s fans told the haters it was foolish to expect her to look the same way she did 10 years ago.

“Of course 31-year-old Bonang looks different to 19 year old Bonang. Are you guys dumb?!” the fan wrote.

Bonang replied: “Don’t entertain nonsense with idiots. Let’s talk about the countries we wanna visit! Where you finna go?”

Rosette Mogomotsi and Dr Smile

Rosette Mogomotsi and Alexander Faizí Rawháni, aka celebrity dentist Dr Smile, are friendship goals.

They have been friends for over a decade and Rosette has the picture to prove it!


Anele Mdoda

Media personality Anele Mdoda is aging like fine wine.

She shared an old Destiny magazine cover she posed for at the start of the decade alongside one of her latest Glamour magazine shoots.
