His announcement did not go down to well with other social media users who shared their thoughts. Twitter user DjVik7 said:
"Africans are comfortable with spending R100ks on Gucci and LVs (supporting foreign brands) but have guts to drag, complain and shame their follow African brother when he charge R100k for izimpahla zakhe, this stereotype must come to an end."
"I thought peer pressure ended in Secondary."
"It's "Xibelani" Som-G maan if you gon buy something atleast like it enough to know ispelling sayo subayi shibankof apha"
"Not jelas at all. But seriously, what kind of a sad & Insecure person that feels the need to flaunt such excess just to show how opposite his lifestyle is compared to other people's well-being...Proud"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that rumours are flying that Somizi Mhlongo and Mohale Motaung's marriage is on the rocks and people have been speculating this for some time.
Somizi shared a message he received from a person claiming to be a journalist for City Press claiming she has it on good authority that Somizi and Mohale are getting a divorce.
She asked Somizi if this was true. She also wanted to know if this was the reason that Mohale was not invited to his birthday a few weeks back.
She had one more question that was visible in the screenshot that Somizi shared, she wanted to know if infidelity was the reason for the couples alleged relationship troubles.
Somizi had a short a sharp reply to the message, he dared her to write the story and he promised to sue the journalist and the publication, telling them to get their facts straight.
Somizi captioned the post with the following:
"So @city_press has become a tabloid... ok... two can play the game... to stand a chance to win I don't know what dial the number and let Julia know what it feels like to have your privacy invaded unprovoked."
Somizi's fans reacted the post on social media, sharing their views on the situation:
"Julia has legal grounds for taking legal action against you. You don’t have a right to publicize her private information without her concern. Be careful papa don’t let your fans fool you by entertaining them with wrong things."
"At least she contacted you bro she didn’t write a fake story on you....but she hit the nerve clearly."
"Simply answer the question and let the rumours die down sweety, are you and Mohale in good terms nah?"
