Somizi has taken to social media to share his thoughts on the plight of South African women amid the ongoing femicide in the country. The media personality said that women are safer among wild animals than with Mzansi men.
His opinion comes after South Africa mourns the loss of numerous women to femicide. The Idols SA judge posted a message on his Instagram page and captioned it:
"YES THERE I SAID IT... YES THIS IS MY HANDWRITING"
His Instagram followers weighed in with comments about the situation in the country. Instagram user yaya101.1 said:
"Truth in that."
"Oh yes you can say that again, struuuu..."
"Such sad reality."
"So true sir!"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Somizi Mhlongo humbled himself and congratulated Bonang Matheba at beating him to first place as Coolest Online Influencer at the Sunday Times Gen Next Awards for 2020.
The event measures brand preference and the behaviour of consumers to calculate which celebrities are SA's favourites. Somizi came in second place and wrote a touching message to the winner, Bonang.
Bonang took top spot, beating Somizi and Kim Kardashian. South Africans were touched by Somizi's good sportsmanship and commented on the post:
Twittter user @mogale_audrey said:
"Congratulations buti and sesi, you really are motivating us."
"No no no no no. Somizi Somgaga Mhlongo Mohale you deserve 1st place and Bonang 2nd place."
In similar news, Bonang Matheba trended on social media after Mzansi saw her attend Mary Twala's funeral. Social media users did not expect her to be in attendance after she did not publicly acknowledge the passing of Somizi's mother.
Somizi and Bonang's friendship has been strained over the years but it seems they have made peace.
