According to TshisaLIVE, Somizi left Metro FM after his name was dragged through the mud by the abuse allegations levelled by his estranged husband, Mohale Motaung.

Mohale claimed in a voice recording obtained by Sunday World that Somizi physically tortured him during their short marriage. The lovers' names topped social media trends for all the wrong reasons, as more and more evidence emerged indicating that they were not living happily ever after following getting married.

As his name continued to make news headlines, Somizi decided to leave Metro FM. The SABC's media statement announcing SomG's decision, according to TshisaLIVE, read:

“The SABC can confirm Metro FM management met with Mr Somizi Mhlongo and he has requested to take some time off from work. Management has granted Mr Mhlongo permission to do so."

SomG and Mohale traditionally married in September 2019 and later had an extravagant white wedding in 2020. ZAlebs reported that the marriage was short-lived after abuse allegations were levelled on both sides, and they took each other to court.

Somizi finally admitted in an Instagram statement that his and Mohale's marriage was invalid, even though they were married under customary law.
