As 2022 draws to a close, we look back at some of Somizi's failed friendships. There were many fallouts between the Idols SA judge and his friends, and he was canceled by several people.

1. Thami  Dish and Somizi.

Following Mohale's startling abuse allegations against Somizi, a clip of Thami Dish opening up about his failed friendship with Somizi went viral online.

Thami said Somizi deserved everything coming his way and shared why he was not at his wedding. "He knows that I know the truth from day one, he was not going to walk down the aisle and cry crocodile tears while I am present there," he said.

He was also heard speaking about a meeting they had where he told Somizi about the repercussions of his alleged abusive nature.

"I told him this kid is going to open a case, you will lose all your sponsors, you will go down with a profile of not just a sex offender but an abuser."

In a lengthy statement released via social media, Thami debunked claims that he enabled Somizi to abuse Mohale. This follows after Mohale said Thami asked him to go back to his marital house following an alleged domestic violence incident that took place between him and Somizi.

"While I would have facilitated a meeting between the two parties at my house after an altercation, It would have been purely for the purposes of having both parties share their side of the story from their perspective: At no point was a suggestion made by myself that Mr Mohale Motaung to a home or a relationship where there was ongoing abuse, and he knows this. That would have been a decision he took outside of my influence," he said in the statement.

Thami says he would have appreciated to be given an opportunity to respond where his name was mentioned. "While I applaud Mohale for speaking up. I would have preferred to be afforded a right of reply in the instances where my name is implicated, especially as an enabler of abuse," read part of the statement.

2. TT Mbha and Somizi

In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, TT shared an old picture of him with his wife, Somizi and Mohale, when they used to hangout together.
TT said his wife had sent the picture to him but he didn't know how to reply to her because a lot has changed since their beef. He captioned the snap "My wife sent me this pic from 2 years ago today and honestly didn't know how to respond to her because so much has changed in the past 2 years. One thing I'm definitely certain about is that  life is way too short, so just live your best life," he wrote.

Andile Ncube replied to his post and said " Are you okay buddy? Missing your friend? You still know his number off by hear mos. It's ok bud. Wanna talk? I am clearly not enough so go back to your bestie"

At first, it wasn't clear why the two were not seeing eye to eye but Somizi's estranged husband Mohale Motaung, eventually spilled the tea. In a leaked conversation between him and former Living The Dream producer Legend Manqele, Mohale revealed that their beef started after TT Mbha sabotaged his career.

This is after Somizi apparently did not want him to work with some people in the entertainment industry. Mohale suspected that Somizi told TT Mbha to tell The Fergusons to not hire him. The Fergusons apparently then stopped talking to him.

“Connie abruptly stopped speaking to me... I found out two years later, confronted Somizi, who confronted TT (TT Mbha, musician and artist), and they broke up as friends, but I figured Somizi probably told TT to go tell the Fergusons not to give me a job because he was the only person I spoke to about the conversation I had with Connie and Shona,” he continued. When the producer inquired if this was a type of jealousy or control, Mohale said,

When Legend asked if Somizi was being controlling or jealous, Mohale said, "It's more control than jealousy." “There have been a lot of possibilities I've been passing up... he'd make sure I didn't get them, or suggest that I shouldn't pursue them, or [say] that I've been working too hard.”
