In exactly two weeks, you will get a sneak peek into the life of the flamboyant, sometimes ‘woo shem,’ superstar that is Somizi Mhlongo as his new reality show premieres on Mzansi Magic.
Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) has commissioned a brand new reality series starring Mhlongo and it will be called Living the Dream with Somizi.
For years viewers have expressed their desire to get a closer look into the life of this illusive icon, and the channel has finally answered that call. Having recently joined Idols SA as a judge, some of Somizi’s other accolades include being a dancer, presenter, choreographer, singer, and actor, making him a household name throughout Africa. He also has a dance exercise video in the works.
The first season will also feature frequent appearances from his daughter Bahumi, and friend and fellow businessman TT Mbha. Other celebrity cameo appearances include: Khanyi Mbau, Unathi, Mary Twala among others.
So I’m assuming that means he hasn’t made up with Queen B* yet…?
“Somizi is such an exciting personality, love him or hate him, viewers can’t get enough of him. He’s proven his entertainment value on Idols SA and various other productions, and he’s always a massive hit,” said M-Net’s Director of Local Entertainment Channels, Nkateko Mabaso, in a statement.
There have been whispers that a project such as this one was in the pipeline an now that it is almost here, Mhlongo is not hesitant to tell fans what to expect.
Expect to see me living my dream in all its ‘fabulosity’, blood, sweat and bling. What you’ll see is exactly who I am: crazy, pacey, fun, fast, and loud; but more than anything, it’s laughter and inspiration in one pot.
Catch the first episode of Living the Dream with Somizi on Wednesday, 13 April at 8PM.
