We’ve seen how people in the entertainment industry transform their bodies time and time again. 

Some go to extra lengths and get surgery, while others eat clean and hit the gym. 

These four men have worked hard, proving that it pays off — their transformations are amazing. Here are four male celebrities who have gone from being ugly ducklings to handsome swans. 

Cassper Nyovest 

The 'Doc Shebeleza' hitmaker went from being the “sexy chubby guy” to being buff with a six pack! And because a beard is to men what contour is to women, Nyovest decided to grow his beard and is looking even better than before.

Recently crowned GQ Best Dressed Man of the Year, musician Anatti is living proof that you can be chubby and still look good. However, should you wish to get tone and ripped you can lose a few kilos and send women's ovaries into overdrive.

Kabelo Malabane

If you know Malabane’s journey from the 'TKzee' era until now, then you would understand how well he’s progressed.

Kwaito star Bouga Luv became a gym enthusiast with his reality show, Kabelo’s Boot Camp where he helped overweight people work on their dream bodies, just as he did.

Gucci Mane

It’s true when they say “a man who changes his looks is about to change his life”.

International hip hop star Gucci Mane went from having a pot belly and ice cream tattoos on his face, to being the a dignified looking man. He also sports a nicely trimmed beard that covers up his face tattoos, and has newly formed set of rock-hard abs.

All this transformation was highlighted when he wedded his long-time lover, Keyshia Ka'oir, at their all white wedding in October.
