A lot of celebrities had someone to help them kick start their careers, and Somizi recently praised the woman who helped him.
Today, Somizi lives a luxury life others can only dream off, but he was once upon a time just a kid in a black community looking for his big break.
The South African entertainer got into dancing when a woman gave classes to poor kids. So, taking to social media, Somizi shared a touching message to honour the woman whose kind heart helped him make a name for himself.
“This woman right here contributed a lot to my dance and choreography career. She gave classes to black underprivileged kids and I was one of them back in the day. Before democracy. For free. Tap. Jazz. Modern etc. and even helped us with transport money”, he started off his post.
Somizi added, “She choreographed the first rugby World Cup opening and I was a dancer. I’ve never looked back since. So I gave her a surprise visit this morning during her rehearsals. My woman crush today. Thank u so much Debbie @debbierakusin for yo heart.”
His story inspired social media users, who praised both Somizi and Debbie.
“Oh my gosh that is so incredibly beautiful and so deserving @debbierakusin! This is such a lovely story”, kimj777 commented.
“We need more of you Debbie! Thank You for your selfless and caring attitude!” said nomthandoniandrews.
