- Somizi Mhlongo is not letting media reports dampen his appreciation of gospel musician Dr Tumi
- The Idols SA judge recently shared a video showing himself enjoying a song by the fraud-accused singer
- Somizi even went as far as tagging Dr Tumi in the video to show that there is no bad blood between them
Somizi has decided to, in his own way, show support to Dr Tumi amid his legal woes. The media personality took to social media to share a video of himself jamming to a gospel song by the fraud-accused musician.
It appeared that Somizi was thoroughly enjoying the song called Udumo and even tagged Dr Tumi in his post.
At a time when many celebrities are pulling away from the gospel star, Somizi has openly acknowledged that he is not one of them. His fans were also enjoying the music and seemed to have let the scandal surrounding the medical doctor slide for now.
Another celebrity who has shown support to Dr Tumi is Khaya Mthethwa. Briefly News reported that Mzansi entertainer Khaya Mthethwa extended his support to Dr Tumi as he faces serious allegations of fraud.
Dr Tumi and his wife Kgaogelo Makweya allegedly defrauded the National Lotteries Board of R1.5 million and took home over R700 000. Dr Tumi remained silent for most of the day when the news broke but he later tweeted that the matter would be dealt with by the court.
"Thank you for your understanding and support. Love you all and wishing you a great day," said Dr Tumi.
Khaya Mthethwa replied to the tweet and said that he was going to support Dr Tumi as he goes through this. Fans were shocked about Khaya's statement online. He tweeted:
"Days are dark, friends are few. I still stand with you."
Social media users reacted to Khaya's tweet and exchange with Dr Tumi.
Briefly News previously reported that gospel artist Dr Tumi and his wife were released on bail after being arrested. Gospel singer Dr Tumisang Makweya, better known as 'Dr Tumi', has been released on bail along with his wife for allegedly defrauding the National Lotteries Board.
The couple handed themselves over to the authorities on Tuesday. The couple has been released on bail of R3 000 each. They had allegedly handed in grant applications that had been altered to get funds for projects they had planned back in 2018.
