- Somizi has expressed that there's a bit of truth in the Clicks advert about black women's hair
- Somizi, who is a reality TV star, shared his opinion on the controversial Clicks advert that has sparked such a heated debate in Mzansi
- Some social media users agreed with Somizi that the advert had some truth in it but has only been criticised because some people don't like the truth
Somizi has taken to social media to share his two cents on the heated debate that the controversial Clicks advert has sparked in Mzansi. The reality TV star took to Instagram on Monday, 7 September to express his views on the touchy subject, which has had social media abuzz for several days.
As expected, the star first expressed that he did not agree with Clicks' campaign. He also agreed that the ad was racist. Somgaga further explained that black South Africans are too forgiving, hence they have been mistreated for some years now. The star said once the drama the advert has created has passed, people will return to Clicks to buy their cosmetics.
The Metro FM presenter also sided a bit with the retail store. He explained that black people tend to treat their hair often, which leaves it damaged because of the products they use. He said that's why Clicks had referred to black women’s hair as unhealthy.
Somizi also shared his views on the trending hashtag #VulaPresident and Kaizer Chiefs losing the PSL to Mamelodi Sundowns. Below are some of the reactions from Somgaga's followers on the photo-sharing app:
"Mina @somizi I am worse, I went on Clicks online that same evening that this saga started. I needed some natural hair products which were on special online, I even saw the apology. I told myself the same thing kuthi (that) they are not the first."
"As for Clicks. I totally agree with you, we always damage our natural hair to make it look like straight long hair, which is white people’s hair texture. We never appreciate our thick curly Afro hair."
"@somizi, shame I love you, the problem about us (black people), we don't like the truth."
