Bathu footwear is the latest company to distance themselves from Somizi in the wake of the allegations pitted against him by his estranged husband, Mohale Motaung.
According to the City Press, Somizi met up with the heads of the sneakers brand and they decided that he should rather not attend the opening of their 28th store at Gateway Mall in KZN.
Social media users have shared their thoughts about the developments. Some have assumed that DJ Tira officially replaced Somizi as the ambassador because he was present at the recent launch. Check out some of the reactions:

“Is #Somizi still associated with Bathu???”
“Somizi made Bathu into the brand it is today.”
“@bathu_sa must not associate themselves with an abuser. They have been doing well in the market so they should let Somizi taint their image. We want to see their brand expanding internationally.”
