Black celebrities have been very dominant in the movies and music space across the world for many years now. You can’t talk about movies without acknowledging the influence and contributions of some black icons like Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington, Halle Berry and the others.
Same applies to music. The Michael Jackson’s, Bob Marley’s, and the Jay-Z’s impact on music is so enormous that you can’t write any music lore across genres without mentioning them.
And this privilege has extended to some black kids who have excelled in their various fields and have risen to become celebrities on their own. Over the years, a lot of black celebrities have managed their fame at an early age and grown to sustain them as A-list celebrities.
Let’s take a look at 5 black kids that can be considered as celebs in their own right currently.
