South Africans breathe fire after Somizi revealed as guest on The Braai Show




After the first four guests of The Braai Show With Cassper Nyovest were announced, Somizi topped the trends list. Not because viewers are excited to see the bubbly media personality back in action, but because many thought cancel culture was in full effect.

Cancel culture in simple terms, means that when a prominent person gets caught up in a scandal, which is largely influenced by Gender-Based Violence of all sorts, they have to have their privileges stripped away. These include their sources of income, their media presence, and so forth. Basically, the celebrity should be cancelled in other words, they should not be celebrated anymore.

Tweeps thought that Somizi Mhlongo would get the exact same treatment and get cancelled. Well, all was “going well” when Metro FM, Idols SA and Bathu elbowed Somizi, however, when he was announced as one of the guests on the Braai Show, social media went on a frenzy.

Phil Mphela announced that former Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi, beauty and make-up influencer Mihlali Ndamase, music superstar Makhadzi, Somizi Mhlongo and iconic actor Presley Chweneyagae are going to be the first guests on Cassper’s show.

Here’s how social media reacted:

Somizi Mhlongo is accused of abusing his estranged husband Mohale Motaung both physically and emotionally. The entertainer denied these allegations and said he just wants to have a smooth divorce as heartbroken as he is.
