Somizi Mhlongo is a generous spirit. He further proved this as he took to Instagram to post a video about his plan to use his platform to help promote small businesses. The star announced that he would be lending his voice and star power to help out smaller businesses that may not be able to afford advertising costs.
Somizi posted the video to his account, which has over 3 million followers, and said any interested parties should start preparing their pitches as he intends to begin the initiative in January 2021.
Somizi explained further:
"I've got a platform that is powerful enough and has a huge following, where I can use it to support and promote undiscovered, beginners or ideas or businesses that might not necessarily get the opportunity or afford to pay for advertising."
