Media personality Somizi Mhlongo is living his dream. In a recent interview with Anele Mdoda, he took us on a journey of how he overcame his struggles to get to where he is right now.
Somizi was recently revealed as the new breakfast show co-host on Metro FM with DJ Fresh.
Not only is he on radio, he has a successful reality show, he is a judge on Idols SA & a renowned choreographer, there is no stopping this talented man.
It hasn't always been an easy journey for him, he says that he was broke from 2006 to 2009, a period which he was too sick to work, "my mom got me through that period, she was there for me throughout."
He then went on to say that he would never go back to poverty, " I ain't going back to poverty, never shame."
One of his proudest moments in his life is that he has never taken any drugs, " I have never been influenced to do drugs or anything like that, I have always been sober."
When asked if there is anyone that owes him an apology, he did not hold back, he said that there were 2 people that owe him an aplogy, a blogger which posted a picture of him at his lowest, and his former best friend, Bonang Matheba, " she used to be my best friend, my do or die, she was honestly my Lebo Mathosa, the relationship I had with her was the same as the one I had with Lebo Mathosa."
Somizi says that his relationship with Bonang came to an abrupt end because someone influenced her, "what hurt me the most is that she treated me like a troll, she just shut me out, blocked me on every social media network & that really hurt me"
We hope that these two sort out their differences because we really enjoyed seeing their friendship, it was goals.
