Mainstream media might be a sea of white faces but when it comes to social media, our own Indigenous entertainers have found a huge following. Below we are featuring six of our favourites. Don’t forget to click on their names that link to their Facebook pages… But remember once your Facebook feed goes black, you’ll never go back.
Steven Oliver – The star of ABC’s Black Comedy, Steven Oliver continues to exhibit his outrageously sexy self on his Facebook page. Steven also has a serious message and some of his spoken word poems have been viewed millions of times.
MC.Mooks – The original train rapper takes old school rap to new levels. His live performances on Brisbane’s trains have been viewed by millions of people around the world. His lyrical skills are truly world class.

Bush Tucker Bunji – A viral sensation from Central Queensland, the Bush Tucker Bunji also known as the Tap Water Murri is straight out the maddest fulla on Facebook who doesn’t muck around (or does he?). If you miss getting on the charge with the fullas, then you’re gonna love the Bush Tucker Bunji.

CjaysVines – Cjay shares the crown as the Queen of black social media together with (tiddabags) Steven Oliver. Perhaps they should fight for it in their next videos. Cjays videos will have you busting out with her raw language that will cut you like a knife. Cjay is also passionate about raising awareness on Indigenous issues. She recently used her Facebook page as a platform to get more people to attend the #Justice4Elijah protests in Brisbane.
