Fame of South Africa
Often confused for Morgan Freeman by some individuals, Nelson Mandela was one of South Africa’s most notable celebrities, known for being an anti-apartheid revolutionary politician, philanthropist, and even served as President to his home country for 5 years. Other South Africans include actress and model Charlize Theron, Lord of the Rings author J R R Tolkien, singer/songwriter Dave Matthews, Sharlto Copley and Neill Blomkamp. Cricket enthusiasts may recognize Dale Steyn, Joshua Pieters, and Ab Devilliers while Siphewe Tshabalala and Bryan Habana will strike soccer and rugby fans. He may not be as recognized, but Nobel Peace Prize winner Bishop Desmond Tutu also needs a well deserved mention.
