Whether you call them bad bitches or their less “vulgar” colloquialisms – baddie or bad-bad – you have had a few women come to mind before you even opened this article.
There is no universal definition for what a bad bitch is but in this instance, we’ll assume the terms refers to a physically attractive woman, with a particular body shape who lives a luxury life usually funded by her business acumen.
The rise of the baddie can be attributed to pop-culture’s recent appreciation for women with a particular set of curves – big or small breasts (depending on preference), a tiny waist and an abnormally large derriere (bum). This rise of the baddie has also given rise to the tendency to put down women who embrace and show their curves as though they were an achievement.
There is also a misconception that because they show their bodies on their accounts, they had sex with certain people to get where they are. Needless to say, that is not always the case and even if it were, it is none of your business.
I’m sure you’ve all seen those boring posts about how girls these days act like having a big bum is the same as having a degree. People basically popularized curves and then tried to shame women for being happy about having them. It would be amusing if it wasn’t so dumb.
Despite all the criticism, the following baddies have taken the reigns and turned their following into enviable amounts of income – check out Africa’s Baddest Instagrammers:
Huddah The Boss Chick
With 1.1 million followers and a cosmetics empire, the 26-year-old Kenyan model is the answer to the question “who is the baddest of them all.” She was reportedly the first contestant to leave the Big Brother Africa house back in 2014 and has since turned all that interest in who she is into cold hard cash.
You know you’ve made it when SupaMega drops your name in a song AND features you in the video as he did with Nyaba in the music video for ‘One Time’. You can’t be a South African with Instagram and say that you don’t know who Nicole Nyaba is.
Speaking of music video cameos, you may remember Swartbooi from JR’s 4Four music video.
We can’t talk about music video cameos and not mention Faith Nketsi who rose to fame as “Queen Twerk” and rebranded herself by reclaiming her birth name.
She recently appeared in Cassper Nyovest’s ‘Tito Mboweni’ music video.
She may not have made a music video cameo (yet) but based on the amount of followers she has, that may happen soon. According to her bio, she’s a financial analyst and owner of an online clothing store.
That’s it for part one. Be on the lookout for part two of our “African’s Baddest Instagrammers” list coming soon.

Here are more of the Africa’s baddest Instagrammers.
25-year-old Londie is the sister of Nozipho Zulu who featured on yesterday’s list and they share a combined following of 538,000 people.
Nozipho runs Zee Shop – an online apparel store while UJ graduate Londie has her own range of lingerie, called Laced by Londie. She also has a penchant for travel as her dream is to take time off to travel the world for three months.
She has also featured in L-Tido’s “Dlala ka Yona” music video alongside Pulane Lenkoe.
Call me “mirror mirror” because I’m crowning Mkhize the baddest of them all. Ask our current finance minister, he would know.
She’s living it up in New York as a stylist and pro-fashionista who occasionally jets of to picturesque locations to frolick in the tiniest swimsuits. Mkhize has unlocked this life thing using her bad-bad status.
This Nigerian cosmetics entrepreneur proves that the stereotype than men will never want to marry a baddie is a lie.
The Ghanaian hair and make-up Youtuber is truly a stunner
While she posts more about hair and make-up than her body, you can’t deny how much of a flame Jackie is and with 592,000 followers and one of the best YouTube channels out there, we might have to snatch that “baddest of them all” crown from Mkhize and give it to Aina.
