There are a lot of South African influencers but few of them are kids.
However, less than 10-15 years ago, there was nothing called influencer or Instagram as a whole as most people does their marketing on the streets.
The fact that celebrity parents create social media accounts for their babies, sometimes even before they’re born, and it’s paying off for many.

They are also paid to promote sponsored posts, star in TV commercials and appear on magazine covers.
