Watch Mihlali take on Hip Hop Glam in the DStv Facebeat


Marriage Boot Camp, Growing Up Hip Hop, and Hip Hop Squares give Mihlali all the diva inspiration she needs for Facebeat

When it comes to drama, the world of hip hop reality shows certainly delivers. From epic on-stage rap battles, to insults that leave their victims with third-degree burns to the soul – if it’s drama you want, it’s drama you’ll get. But in her new episode of Facebeat on DStv’s YouTube page, beauty influencer and online content creator Mihlali N shows us that make-up is just as much a part of the hip hop industry as the music, fallouts and flows.

Whether it’s luscious lashes or on-fleek brows, Mihlali brings her drama A-game as she walks us through her dramatic look while chatting about some of her favourite hip hop moments on 1 Magic (DStv 103). So while you make notes on face contouring, baking and highlighting, we’ve taken a few notes on the shows keeping her entertained this month.

Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars: Hip Hop Edition S15

Marital problems are dramatic on their own. But asking troubled couples to iron out their differences in a Big Brother-type mansion just adds fuel to the fire. That’s the aim of the Marriage Boot Camp series – to not only help couples find their way back to each other, but to also give viewers unforgettable reality TV moments. This season, we see the queen of memes and former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks battling to find common ground with her rapper-turned-actor beau Medina Islam.

Troublemaker Hazel-E from Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood is also in the house, and it isn’t long before a long-running online feud with fellow Love & Hip Hop star Shanda Denyce spills out into the real world. Expect lots of heat between not only the ladies, but the guys as well, as they struggle to make love work.

The style note: Dressed down but not at all casual. Just making sure that he knows what he’s missing.

Growing Up Hip Hop S6

The highly anticipated 6th season of Growing Up Hip Hop kicked off in November and boy, are they bringing the scandals! Romeo and Angela’s romance is teetering closer to all-out collapse as Romeo loses his cool over small things, while Angela tries to prove she’s no longer into her ex, Bow Wow. But it’s not all clapbacks and hair flips.

There are also a few romantic moments including an unforgettable engagement, while JoJo and Twist finally declare an end to their seemingly endless beef.

The style note: Everybody’s hustling, so this is the full glam experience and if you’re not down for dressing like one of the boys, the earrings are colossal.

Hip Hop Squares S4

Brought to life by original gangster Ice Cube, this gameshow gives the simple game of tic-tac-toe (aka noughts and crosses) some spicy hip hop flavour. Each episode features some of the biggest names in hip hop, comedy and entertainment as they show off their general knowledge and baddest burns to win a cash prize for an audience member.

Some faces to look out for are Ballers actress Jazmyn Simon, rapper Trina, and Justin Combs, the son of Sean “Diddy” Combs. However, recurring panellist Michael Blackson, known as the African King of Comedy, steals the show with his often ruthless roasts of both host DeRay Davis and the multitude of guests.

The style note: For the divas, the look is low-cut, tight, showing off gorgeous skin and hair but with daytime make-up.
