Nota Baloyi breaks down Somizi Mhlongo's career and why he should be cancelled
In a post shared by Musa Khawula, Nota wrote a scathing take on Somizi. The music entrepreneur said that Idols SA contestants are lucky that auditions will not be live so that they are safe from a "convicted offender with predatory tendencies." Nota said that contestants would only get to meet Somizi after getting a golden ticket that he suggests should be renamed a "golden shower", because Somizi is like R Kelly.

Nota then claims that Somizi has not been cancelled because he is gay. He wrote:
"Accountability culture has been slow moving in from the LGBTQ community with the same swiftness they pounce on black men who have committed cancellable offences."

Nota lists South African fave Sol Phenduka as one of the people who were quickly cancelled for being transphobic, as well as international comedian Dave Chappelle. Nota says Somizi was only asked to take a break from Idols SA when Mohale made allegations of abuse. Nota says:
"Somizi has proven himself uncancellable even with the newly gazetted at law that will see his name on the national sex offenders list which include non-child sex offenders for the first time. Idols SA are standing by their man in spite of this."
Supporters defend Somizi Mhlongo against netizens agreeing with Nota Baloyi
Nota may have spent time writing the long-winded letter about Somizi, but many peeps expressed that they did not even bother to read what he had to say. Some noticed again that Musa Khawula's commentary was gentler for Somizi than other celebrities. Some South African netizens could see Nota's point about how Somizi has gotten away with a lot with the public.
"Just read the comments if you want to know why we have so much GBV in SA. Sexual predators are focusing on grammar, not facts of the Nota letter."
"Nota's open letter was almost relevant, but that second paragraph gives away his homophobia. Somizi has been uncancellable like many other straight men. It's not harder to cancel Somizi cause he's part of the LGBTQ community. It's hard to cancel him because he's a man."
"I fully agree with Nota. But in all honesty, I’d rather see Mohale not getting a dime from Sarafina (Somizi) than see him being cancelled."
"Maar, he's on to something. Somizi is never ever wrong on anything. Oloile South Africa daai man."
"It’s a bitter pill for me to swallow, but I agree with Nota. Somizi is a convicted sex offender. He goes around harassing men, and we laugh about it. He made a rapey comment to MacG that he was waiting for him to get older. But society still stands by him."
