Liv­ing the dream with Somizi is back!

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Show­biz Re­porter

POP­U­LAR TV per­son­al­ity, Somizi Mh­longo’s re­al­ity show is back on tele­vi­sion screens for Sea­son 2.

The show’s sec­ond sea­son, which pre­miered last Thurs­day on Mzansi Magic (DStv chan­nel 161), was an in­stant hit when it launched last year as it had TV au­di­ences glued to their seats. Somizi, pop­u­larly known as Som­gaga, gave view­ers a glimpse into his flam­boy­ant life.

M-Net’s Di­rec­tor of Lo­cal En­ter­tain­ment Chan­nels, Nkateko Mabaso, said: “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.”

“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 the call.

“This sea­son will fea­ture fre­quent ap­pear­ances from Somizi’s daugh­ter Bahumi and friend and fel­low busi­ness­man TT Mbha. Other celebrity cameo ap­pear­ances in­clude Khanyi Mbau and Unathi among var­i­ous oth­ers.”

No two ways, Somizi is a man who loves the finer things in life and is on a con­stant quest to live his life to the fullest. The show cap­tures all that as well as the highs and lows that make the tal­ented en­ter­tainer and busi­ness­man tick.

“Be­hind all the glitz and glam, the show is never short of drama with this multi-lay­ered char­ac­ter who never bites his tongue.”

The first episode of sea­son two opens with Somizi and his 21-year-old daugh­ter, Bahumi, a 2nd year law stu­dent. Bahumi, who does not al­ways agree with her father, is treated to a birth­day bash in Rose­bank while TT Mbha re­news his wed­ding vows.

TT Mbha claims to be the one per­son who can keep Somizi in check, never al­low­ing him to let the fame and for­tune go to his head.

Liv­ing the Dream With Somizi airs on Mzansi Magic ev­ery Thurs­day at 8PM.

Mean­while, Somizi re­cently opened up about his for­mer re­la­tion­ship with SA’s ‘it’ girl, Bonang Matheba say­ing he never imag­ined their friend­ship would come to an end.

Speak­ing on SABC 3’s Real Talk with Anele, Somizi — who is also a Metro FM break­fast show co-host and SA Idols judge - said he adored Bonang.

“I loved that girl and still do. I never thought our friend­ship would die. She was my Lebo Mathosa,” said Mh­longo while an­swer­ing a ques­tion from show host Anele Mdoda about who he thought owed him an apol­ogy.

Matheba and Mh­longo’s friend­ship went south af­ter she stopped talk­ing to him two years ago. The ru­mour mill has it that Matheba be­lieved Somizi had told DJ Zinhle about Matheba’s af­fair with her ex-boyfriend AKA.
