- Mohale was honest about how the opinions of others used to concern him, but that he has learnt how to stop them bothering him
Mohale went on SABC 3's TrendingSA on Tuesday night to discuss the backlash he has faced since announcing he had been cast as a character on the soapie, Rhythm City.
He was interviewed remotely for his feature on the 30-minute programme and got candid about how he had to work on being unbothered by people and their many opinions. Mohale said he had to stop and really think about the fact that the people offering them don't really know him or anything real about him.
The celeb faced a fair amount of criticism after the announcement with online chatter going into overdrive about the casting decision. There were doubts raised as to Mohale's acting chops, suspicions about how he got into the audition room and opinions that he got the job because of his famous husband, Somizi.

Mohale said he was sent to the casting by his agent, that there were multiple people up for the part and that he did have to go through an audition in order to get it.
ZAlebs.com quoted the interview as Mohale explained:
"People expect me to not do anything simply because I am married to a famous person. I can't blame myself for getting married to Somizi. That must not mean I shouldn't pursue any opportunities simply because people are going to say that Somizi got them for me"
The celeb was asked about reaching his first anniversary and mentioned that there are misconceptions about how hard the first year of marriage is and that people only talk about the fun, easy parts. When questioned about how they celebrated, Mohale actually revealed that he and his "HubStar" are planning a third wedding event. He did add that it wouldn't be in the league of the couple's previous celebrations, but would be something:
"We are not planning an extravaganza, but we are having another wedding."
The fabulous couple both took to Instagram to share the love with their fans and followers as they celebrated their first year as a married couple. Somizi also shared that he wanted to chat with his fans about how there are lots of difficulties about the first year of a marriage that society doesn't really address, but he thinks need to be talked about.
It's hard to believe that the marital spectacle that was the Somhale wedding was already a year ago, but the couple reminded everyone just how spectacular it was as they reposted pictures of the big day.
