However, it turns out Somizi planned ahead and is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure Mohale gets nothing from him. According to controversial blogger Musa Khawula, the media personality is using his alleged R3.5 million debt to declare bankruptcy. He tweeted:

"Remember when Mohale Motaung thought he organized the most successful money heist, and it turns out Somizi Mhlongo is in debt? It turns out Somizi owes R3 million in tax debt. Is this Somizi's ploy to declare bankruptcy or not?"

The South African also reported that the Idols SA judge is believed to have transferred his valuable asserts to his daughter Bahumi who recently adopted his surname.

"Bahumi changes her surname to Mhlongo. Somizi is suspected of having transferred his assets to his daughter, Somizi Mhlongo sets to file for bankruptcy. Coincidence much?"

Social media users also weighed in on the matter and they agreed that Somizi is trying to outsmart Mohale.

@Nomthyll wrote:

“I think Somizi did all this on purpose so that Mohale will suffer too. It is possible that Somizi might transfer everything to his daughter since she now uses the Mhlongo surname so that Mohale will lose too. It’s my opinion though.”

In more entertainment news, Briefly News previously reported that Somizi Mhlongo made headlines after the South African Revenue Service (SARS) grabbed and sold some of his expensive furniture a few days back.

The larger-than-life media personality's valuables were apparently put under the hammer to recover the money he owes SARS. The Idols SA judge reportedly failed to pay at least R3.5 million in tax debt since 2014.

Some of the star's goods that were sold at the auction include a Samsung washing machine, a white sculpture (Guman Head), two red human statues, a Hisense television set with a remote, a Smeg dishwasher, a Gold Air gas heater, a DeLonghi oil heater and a Samsung fridge, among other things.
