Males and Females experience the world differently. It is quite evident how each sex performs in different fields and especially on Social Media.

People may have many theories as to, and I would have theories of my own on as to why its apparent that the women are killing the Social Media Game more than men.

Let me challenge you for a second. You can either do it right now or at a later stage after reading this article. Head onto your Instagram and go to your followers list, you’d notice that approximately 70-90% of your followers depending on how big your account is or maybe if you may know persons either close to you or persons you know on social media that wants to be an Influencer with everything they got, on Instagram specifically, have an attractive feed, they have a few passion, but they do not have many followers to ultimately qualify to be an influencer or even a micro-influencer, but they want to be that person that has millions of followers because you love food, love to travel or love travel photography.

Unfortunately, that industry is brutal to men. Its evident that sexism exist in the real world, and that there is a huge pay gap with women and men. In the real world, for years it is better to be a man than it is to be a woman.

This Is A Bad Issue, do not get me wrong, frankly it needs to be resolved in the real world, however if you a male and you want to become an influencer, you have little to no chance to be one because looking at the state of the influencer market today, it is dominated by females.

Females are better at making communities and creating content…the statement is arguable yes, but that is just the way it is. Females are super extraordinary in the influencer market to-date. They dominating social media as is. Men just can’t be travel, fashion influencers as successfully as females.

It is not easy to escalate as an influencer on Instagram unless you have a huge amount of content to post with the perfect balance in aesthetics, constant collaborations and high-quality content.

Examples of female influencers, that are increasingly upcoming and are already crushing it on Instagram.

Yes, there are male influencers who are crushing it, but if you look at your social media, those males are either really good at fashion, fashion streetwear or photography. They are just specialists at style and fashion. Some can be really rich, constantly networking with rich people, hanging around beautiful girls/models and collaborating with them or even getting shout outs. Being an Artist perhaps.

You have to be really good at something in real life to be a successful influencer and crush the market. You have to work extra hard to be noticed and some will not even get noticed as quick as they expect, but for females, the good news is, if you want to be an influencer, you do not necessarily have to be good at something in real life, the industry is just built that way. You can be good at social media and succeed at this life thing.

Males can dominate as well, but it is a uphill battle to get there and dominate as fast as they want to. Females dominate the influencing market and they surely can dominate the real world as well.

Trevor Noah

Benjamin Gentles | January 2021 | Nochillinmzansi

Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show” concluded 2020 on a high note as he has splashed R400 million on this impressive mansion in Bel-Air, a neighbourhood favored by some of LA’s biggest-name buyers.

South Africa’s very own exceptional comedian must have a eye for architectural spaces, as he bought a contemporary megamansion such like this one in 2019 but sold it for about R300 million in 2020 and this 11000-square-foot luxury mansion, designed by Mark Rios in Bel-Air spans over three stories overlooking the city.

Trevor bought this one just last week. This house is fitted with a host of materials like stone, glass wood and the property has floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows, where one can see a slight view of the city and out to the ocean. It includes a spa, gym, wine cellar, screening room, rooftop terrace, outdoor bar, and an infinity pool.

Trevor bought this from Mark Rios, an L.A Architect. From the street the home appears to be fitted with a series of cubes, as the home sits on a hillside but all-in-all is an exceptional, stunning home with six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, also includes a library and an office.

funny, self-accredited relationship expert Lemii loco on working with coconut kelz, award nomination and more

If you are looking for unfiltered and mercilessly legitimate relationship advice while laughing through the frustration and the pain, Lemii Loco is the guy you need to ask.

Lemii Loco who’s birth name is ,Molemo Lehoko, was born in Rustenburg and bred in the streets of Soweto. His parents only moved to Soweto two years after his birth. 

When he is not helping fans solve their relationship problems while simultaneously cheering them up, he is making them feel like they are in a happy feet storyline with his D.J skills and he is also content creator.

“If you ever ask me a question, I will give you an honest answer”

His intensely unfiltered advice and his popular phrase “Do you have money?” left many laughing at their pain and yearning for more. The funny relationship adviser has stolen the hearts of a lot of people. His Instagram relationship Q and As are shared on many social media platforms.

The self – accredited relationship expert started serving advice earlier this year, not long before the South African COVID-19  lockdown. It began as nothing more than him enjoying and putting to use the Instagram Q & A feature. Ever since then his social media following has grown tremendously.

His videos have proliferated online and he found fans across the South African border, some from Zimbabwe, Kenya, Botswana, New York, Canada, Germany and with the largest fan base found to be  in Namibia.

Lemii Loco on set with Coconut Kelz

He has since worked with the South African writer and comedian Lesego Tlhabi, who is best known for creating the character Coconut Kelz on the Eskort South Africa’s YouTube channel.

The multi-talented comedian has partnered with a number of brands, one of them being the best selling distilled spirit brand in the world, Smirnoff.

The social media figure has recently been nominated for the African Social Entertainment Awards for favorite Social Media Comedian.

After a fan suggested to Lemii to host an event and name it after his popular phrase ‘Do you have money‘. He did exactly that, so far he has hosted two ,Do you have money, events were he invites individuals who enjoy his content to meet up in one space and converse.

“It’s all about getting together” he added

Lemii gave voice that as influencers they tap into a lot more issues than they are aware of, either being social issues or otherwise and that is not something one takes for granted.

“Whenever God gives you a platform where you can be influential in peoples lives, you can’t do anything with that but do good”

He emphasized that he wants to be one with his fans hence he tries by all means to make his event, Do you have money, more than just people coming to support a star. He wants to fabricate a environment where one doesn’t only feel welcome but where everyone can offer support to one another.

As much as the expert loves giving advice he also has appreciates receiving it, either being from fans, friends or even haters.

“Whatever advice people give or share, I take into consideration”

“I am a very socially awkward person and shy” he disclosed

Some of the misconceptions about the comedian is that he is stuck up or very rude which he assures the public that that is extremely inaccurate.

He has recently started a YouTube channel where he will be showing his fans his versatility when it comes to content creation. He will be inviting fans into this personal space and collaborating with other social media influencers and other creatives.

The multi-talented creative divulged that, the next goal for him is to penetrate the acting world, as he is a trained actor and participated in a lot of theater work while growing up.

“Entertainment has always been a passion of mine” 

The raising star told NoChillMzansi this from his living room through a zoom interview, where he shoots countless Q and As that earned him his unprecedented level of fame.
