After Somizi was accused of domestic violence by his estranged husband Mohale, tweeps were under the impression that he would receive the exact same treatment as other stars who walked a similar path.
The announcement of the guest list was made by The Entertainment Alert's Phil Mphela. Naming Zozibini Thunsi as the first celeb who will appear on the show joined by Makhadzi, Percy Cheweneyagae, Mihlali Ndamase and Somizi.

Briefly News previously reported that Mohale Motaung has come out with some shocking allegations about his marriage to Somizi Mhlongo. Their marriage was not as happy as they would have had people think and Mohale has said that it was quite abusive.
This could explain the sudden distance between the two, who used to be inseparable. Sunday World reported that Mohale alleged that Somizi threatened him with a knife only three weeks after they were married.
The South African reported that the tabloid had used an interview Mohale did with the producers of Somizi's reality show, Living the Dream with Somizi.
