Funny Cape fashionista Nadia Jaftha making waves with her mom

Fashion blogger and clothing designer Nadia Jaftha is changing the local social media scene with her sense of style and viral video blogs (vlogs).

The 23-year-old UCT graduate and her mom have become a popular comedic duo online, using prank videos posted on YouTube and Instagram such as the one seen below:

On her Instagram, Jaftha shares a variety of content including look posts from her Birdline blog, photo shoots, events, and of course the practical jokes on her mother, Nawal.

After the first prank on her mother involving a cigarette, they have fast become a relatable duo sharing personal moments with fans.

Nadia explains that she always catches her gullible mother off guard, and asks family to help film her reactions online.

The spirited pair have each other to depend on as they pursue their independent business interests and passions.

Nadia aspires to become a social media personality, and she's lucky to have her parent and partner in crime by her side.
