Don’t for­get the Gua­reezy!

Farieda Met­sileng’s Where Da Gua­reezy? short video was a huge hit over the fes­tive sea­son and, since then, more and more peo­ple have dis­cov­ered her brand of hu­mour. #Trend­ing chat­ted to South Africa’s fresh­est so­cial-me­dia star. HOW DID YOU START MAK­ING TH­ESE VIDEOS?

I started mak­ing and post­ing videos to In­sta­gram last year. It was purely for fun at first. As a per­former, it was just some­thing I en­joyed do­ing. I would just think of some­thing that ran­domly came to mind, or stuff I’ve seen around. WHERE DID THE IDEAS FOR THE DIF­FER­ENT CHAR­AC­TERS COME FROM?

I think I was just por­tray­ing peo­ple you al­ways en­counter. My most pop­u­lar char­ac­ter, who I call Ntabiseng, is one of those peo­ple you al­ways see around. Ev­ery­one knows some­one like her. She’s overly con­fi­dent. She is that girl you can’t tell any­thing. I love the fact that she has no bound­aries and is very am­bi­tious. I took a ghetto ap­proach with her be­cause it is quite re­lat­able for me and those around me. WHAT WAS THE IN­SPI­RA­TION BE­HIND THE POP­U­LAR GUA­REEZY VIDEO?
