2017 has been a really good year for Somizi Buyani Mhlongo, the entertainer has achieved major success this year and there is no stopping him.

Somizi has been in the entertainment industry for 4 decades and just like fine wine, he gets better with age. 


The multi-talented media personality is set to host the red carpet for the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles on the 28th of August. 

This will be the first time the entertainer hosts a major international red carpet show, earlier this year, he hosted the South African Music Awards with Tumi Morake and they did a pretty amazing job. Not only is he an exceptional presenter, he is also a radio host, a world class choreographer and a published author amongst many other titles.
