Somizi Mhlongo’s star keeps rising. The IdolsSA judge has just revealed his own celebrity reality show to start soon.
Mhlongo was set to get his own reality show a few years ago but it was canned by Vuzu after he was linked to a violent altercation.
He has since redeemed himself and after appearing on Idols where he is popular for his saying Wooshem! to describe his approval of a contestant’s performance – he will appear on his very own Mzansi Magic reality show.
M-Net’s Director of Local Entertainment Channels, Nkateko Mabaso commented on the bold new venture by Mzansi Magic: “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.”
Mhlongo gave hints on what viewers can expect during the debut season, “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.”
