Somizi has been on a roll lately in terms of success. The media personality and choreographer had his cookbook listed as the best selling cookbook in the country and his reality shows made it into Showmax's Top 10 list.
Somizi took to Twitter to share some advice with his followers about hard work. He spoke about his journey and how at some point he was down and out but managed to pick himself back up.
"Whoever has ears will hear me. I once had it all and lost it all. I grew up poor as well and now I'm not," said Somgaga.
He said that the moral of the story is to work hard and believe in yourself. Somizi told his followers that they should stop complaining about bad fortune and put matters in their own hands.
"Keep knocking and build your door," said Somizi. "No excuses. Pray."
A number of social media users chimed in with their own thoughts about overcoming hardships in life:
@QueenD19746222 said: "I'm a living testimony. I started working as a driver at some company, no matric or any qualifications, except for my driver's license. I took myself back to school and I'm excited to tell you that I'm now a branch manager in the same company."
@PrinceKoti9 commented: "I agree and support what you are saying. We need to be persistent and resilient also not forgetting that success is not an overnight thing."
@kat_mbau12 said: "I have been falling several times but I haven't given up, I still stay strong and believe that one day my turn will come."
