Somizi is having a day filled with roller-coaster emotions. After saying goodbye to his mother, Mary Twala, Somizi went home to celebrate his husband's birthday. The Idols SA judge shared an emotional video detailing how he had planned a trip to Italy to celebrate his beau's birthday.
He even said that the couple were going to have a third wedding. Alas, things did not turn out the way he had planned.
He, instead, bought a stunning diamond ring set with one ring for himself and another for Mohale. The beautiful bling was admired by his fans and followers as they wished Mohale a happy birthday.
Instagram user gpiliso95 said:
"Your strength will carry you."
"Must be hard going through these at the same day, God be with you."
"Happy birthday to you. Thank you for the support you have for @Somizi. Noma kubhlungu (even if it hurts) but God is in control."
"Happy birthday Mohale!"
"I love you Mr Motaung so much and may God bless you, you deserve every good thing coming your way. I love you. Beautiful rings, congrats!"
"Oh baby, so sorry."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that Somizi laid his mother to rest on Thursday morning. Her death was confirmed by Metro FM on social media.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the funeral adhered to the current national funeral restrictions of only 50 mourners. The funeral was also streamed on various news and several platforms, including Somizi's Twitter account and his husband, Mohale's Facebook page.
Gospel singer Dr Rebecca Malope sang a touching song during the actress' final send-off. Somizi's friend, media personality Bonang Matheba, was also in attendance, causing a stir. Many did not expect to see Queen B at the ceremony.
