"I decided to go through my DMs. Thank you for trusting and sharing your stories. There's one person who said she was five minutes from committing suicide."

"She decided to go through Instagram and thanked me. She said that I was on time,"

"I'm glad that I'm not selfish and I share. I hope that my stories will encourage you, even when I am going through the most,"
 His Tuesday Instagram video was in his words him hitting two birds with one stone,  he spoke about a heavy topic but managed to keep it light-hearted by doing what he is good at cooking in this video he made a delicious cooled ginger concoction In the second part of the video Somizi touched on some serious issues, one of them reminding his followers that they are not alone in their problems.

He encourages his followers to  ‘keep on thirsting for the things they want whether it is wealth, success, peace or happiness. And in a typical Somizi fashion he signed off by telling people to enjoy their Thursday and take advantage of the ‘phuza Thursday and urged his followers to maintain a positive attitude.
