Thanks to time and cosmetic surgery, the pair no longer look the way they used to.
Real Housewives of Johannesburg break-out stars Evodia Mogase and Mercy Mogase have been fan-favourites since their first appearance on season one of the show back in 2018.
The mother-daughter duo has gone on to become social media sensations with their own spin-off show called Madame and Mercy.
Prior to their reality TV debut, the pair had undergone a few cosmetic procedures in order to improve their appearances and they have been unapologetic about this.
In recent months, both Evodia (whom fans affectionately refer to as Madame) and Mercy have started sharing images of what they used to look like, much to the surprise of their followers.
Check out Madame and Mercy’s most shocking throwback pics:

Morning Family To all the ladies out there. The hard way of my life. Those who don’t understand who Madam Queen of Versace comes from. It’s through hardships and hardworking. The past 25yrs was not easy. I did not care about the Sun,Rain or any kind of weather for me it was a working day . Sun blocks was luxury. I was only praying to God that I must reach my goals. Not worried about my looks. I had a vision my dream was that I don’t want to be a failure. After 15 yrs I divorced and left everything behind. I slept in the back of the bakkie for 8 moths on site and bought a caravan, and stayed on it for 2 yrs on-site it was 2008 and the nicest thing was that my business was still there because I laid a solid foundation. To start from cutlery to everything was not easy. I decided to stay at work 24/7 and put all my effort to growing my company. Beauty was not an option ,work was. No friend no family and Mercy was working at Disney Cruise Ships 🚢 also working 18 hrs. Always parents must allow their children to be independent, exposed and responsible and you won’t be disappointed. When I count the yrs I have worked and left everything behind is only 10 yrs back when I started everything from the bottom . I thank Almighty God for always protecting and blessing me. Father God your the best. I have leant a lesson that in life believe in yourself and give your children love they will love you back .So people must understand that life is not smooth and easy. I always preach that handwork pays . Today don’t be surprised when I spoil my self. I have spend sleepless night , working hard . It’s the sweet and short of who I am and my story of where I come from. I SALUTE MADAM. And still working had till today.Stay blessed family 💕💕thank you @mercymogase for believing in me as a mother. God bless you for giving me all the support 🙏🏽🙏🏽 @madamandmercy our Versace Charity Dinner will benefit some of the disadvantaged children . Always make a difference by helping others❤️❤️ Don’t give up in life😘
