Somizi Mhlongo is doing it all in one go. He's recently launched a sneakers collaboration with a top brand in Mzansi and he's grateful to his friends for supporting him through it all.
Taking to Twitter, Somizi showed off how much his friends have been supporting his hustle. What's impressed him is that his friends paid full price, not asking for a discount.
"Friends like these are a blessing. Two of my close friends just bought 30 and 10 pairs of my sneakers for their staff members. At full price," said Somizi.
Somgaga is just not letting up with all his business dealings, he's been hinting at having even more in the works for 2021. He's teased about possibly opening a restaurant as well.
Somizi's sneakers are doing well and social media users have been loving the designs. Take a look at some of the reactions to his post below:
"I like the full price emphasis, that’s true friendship. Our friends come to us when they want discounts and free stuff. That’s the most difficult thing about black people's businesses. Congratulations on your venture."
"I like the fact that it's not overpriced. Very affordable for most South Africans. Well done."
"They are stunning, as soon as I get a job I want to buy them for my hubby. I've done nothing nice for him in almost a year."

Flexing this big move, Somizi says that he gained a powerful ancestor in his mother, iconic SA actress Mary Twala:
"Super excited to be part of the @mercedesbenzsandton family. You know when I said I've gained the most powerful ancestor in my mom I guess she was listening. To God be the glory."
