Clique

Remember back in school how one’s level of “coolness” was determined by which clique you were kicking it with?

Well, it seems cliques are not something that one outgrows; In fact, even grown adults find themselves yearning to be perceived as being “cool” by the type of friends they affiliate themselves with.

Some of our well known and loved celebrities are not exempt from this; hence for most of them, being seen in the company of relevant and “hip and happening” fellow celebs could even elevate their personal brands, however, given the fickle and pretentious nature of celebville, one wonders if these acquaintances are real or not.

Below is a list of Mzansi’s A-list celebrity cliques that are real-life entourages – well seemingly.

Rouge has built quite a strong bond with fellow rapper, Nomuzi Mabena. Not only do these two multi-talented rappers enjoy some downtime together but they make music together as well. Both Rouge and Nomuzi are very supportive of each other’s careers, especially seeing that they work in a male-dominated fraction of the music industry – Hip Hop.
