Somizi finally speaks on his friendship with Unathi after she dumped him in public
Somizi finally speaks on his friendship with Unathi after she dumped him in public. South African media personality Somizi Mhlongo addressed his colleague Unathi Nkayi “cancelling” him on the latest episode of his reality series which aired on Showmax today (11 May).
Somizi addressed former Idols SA judge Unathi Nkayi cancelling him back in October 2021 on the latest episode of his reality series – Living the Dream with Somizi. Unathi posted that she will not allow people to listen to American singer R Kelly because he was convicted of s.e.xual abuse.
An Instagrammer called her out for having double standards because she is friends with DJ Fresh and Euphonik who were accused of rape and Somizi, because of the abuse allegations made against him by his estranged husband Mohale Motaung. However, she said she was not friends with Somizi.
“Who said they are my friends?” She responded and she unfollowed Somizi.
At the time, the media personality was suspended from Idols SA as well as his radio gig on Metro FM because of the abuse allegations. Tweeps also called for Somizi to be cancelled but he has been reinstated as a judge on the singing competition for the 18th season.
So, how did Somizi feel about Unathi? Well, he said that he felt shocked and disappointed in a conversation with his “bestie” Vusi Nova. He and Vusi did not mention Unathi’s name but they shared screenshots of the comments on her Instagram page, which shows her user name.
“What’s happening with a certain lady?” Vusi asks Somizi.
“Honestly, I was shocked, I was disappointed but it is what it is. Sometimes when people show you who they are, you leave them,” he responded.
“Someone that I thought we were okay with went public,” he continued.
