Somizi has been his daughter’s biggest fan and supporter from day one. Not too long ago, he gifted her one of his most prized possessions – one of his favourite wigs.
He surprised the young actress with the expensive wavy hair piece, which he has worn on several special occasions, including on the Idols SA stage. Regardless of having his wigs mocked repeatedly by Ntsiki Mazwai, Somizi knew quality when he saw it, which is exactly what he wanted his daughter to have from him.

After Bahumi completely killed the brief skit, Somizi shared the video on Instagram, completely in awe of her skills. “My School fees are not going to waste at AFDA (in Kelly Khumalo’s voice) coz wow dear daughter u killed this… 80% natural,” he wrote.

Well, it looks like he was right, because she did an amazing job playing Lebo Mathosa. And luckily for Somizi, she has graduated now, so perhaps his wish will come true and she will be able to pay back his school fees.
A huge congratulations to Bahumi on this momentous occasion.
