Crown The Brown introduces SA’s Sexiest South Asian Men.
Cosmopolitan SA’s sexiest men’s list recently came out and it left our Crown the Brown team baffled. The article had a list of South Africa’s sexiest men. None of which featured any South Asian faces. South Africa is democratic and working towards being more diverse. Similarly, many industries have added more diversity in the work place and more. The lack of representation left us questioning this “diversity” stance in the country. It seems like diversity reigns strictly between two looks and nothing further for Cosmopolitan SA. Scrolling through the list, we never imagined the horror of not seeing a talented South African Indian on the list. Many of the candidates had toned bodies, pockets filled with cash and lavish stories. What about sharing some real men? Maybe men with more than just a body dripped in oil. Men with authenticity, real life struggles and personality to match their amazing looks.
Furthermore, despite the sad reality that is Cosmopolitan SA, we decided to write up our own list. We decided to celebrate our South African Indian men. After all, representation matters in a democratic country. So if you are not represented, someone will surely find a way to bring the heat! We are often labeled as “minorities” and hardly ever celebrated for what we do! It is time to represent ourselves in the best way possible! So here we are, Crown The Brown bringing you our South African Indian Men. The sexiest South Asian Men of South Africa, in no particular order. Behold, the spice is just right on this list!
