Somizi – “Idols made me a bigger star not Bonang”


Somizi defends the reason behind his success in the entertainment business.

Bonang Matheba and Somizi Mhlongo’s friendship has been under the spotlight over the past couple of weeks. This was mainly due to the fact that Bonang finally revealed why she is no longer friends with the TV and radio personality. Somizi, of course, also hit back by throwing shade at the Being Bonang star. The former BFFs will probably never make peace.



Although the friendship is over, entertainment writer Phil Mphela believes that Somizi benefited from being friends with B. In an interview on RGB, when asked if their friendship was real or not, Phil said: “There were some elements of benefit within the relationship. Love her or hate her, had it not been for Bonang, Somizi’s rise would not have come at the time that it did, it came simply because of the glitter that was falling from Bonang.”

Anyway, Somizi, who has been in the entertainment industry for more than two decades, completely disagrees with Phil’s statement.
