True Love - - News -

As I finish read­ing the fi­nal chap­ter of our cover star So mizi Mh­longo’s book Domi­noes: Un­break­able Spirit, I’m in awe of the life he’s lived. Be­ing in the lime­light ap­peared to be glam­orous, but there were dark days be­hind closed doors. For those of us who grew up in the town­ship, where there were more than 10 peo­ple in a four-room house, we can re­late to his story of hav­ing to self-mo­ti­vate and keep pos­i­tive de­spite the tough en­vi­ron­ment. We strove to be dif­fer­ent and kept chas­ing our dreams, no mat­ter how out of the norm they were. We could be down and out, but we still ap­pre­ci­ated the beauty around us. And that’s Somizi – he used all chal­lenges as step­ping stones to a bet­ter life. I truly be­lieve that his book has a chap­ter every­one can re­late to. As I close this chap­ter of my life and bid farewell to this won­der­ful brand, I’ve had the most amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that I’ll cher­ish for the rest of my life. I’ve met won­der­ful peo­ple – you, the TRUE LOVE reader, who’ve in­spired me. Your sup­port kept me go­ing. I’ve had an amaz­ing jour­ney with you. I’ll never for­get the love and the many cover ideas you sug­gested; Somizi is one of them! How can I for­get all the celebs who will­ingly opened up their homes to TRUE LOVE, trust­ing us to han­dle their sto­ries with care and sen­si­tiv­ity. From the bot­tom of my heart, I thank every­one who’s trav­elled this road with me, and my won­der­ful team of ded­i­cated and hard­work­ing in­di­vid­u­als. I couldn’t have done this with­out you all. Till next time. Happy read­ing.
