South African media personality Somizi Mhlongo can seemingly do no wrong. The ‘Idols SA’ judge was faced with abuse allegations last year and faced a lot of downtime at work as a result. This year, the over-the-top personality appears to have come back with a bang and has managed to marvel locals with his latest contribution to entertainment – Downtime With Somizi.
Somizi’s new show gets great reviews
The first episode of Downtime with Somizi was seemingly a huge success – or at least that’s what viewers think. The first episode aired earlier this month on DStv’s 1Magic (channel 103).
His latest guests on the spirit enlightening show were Mampho Brescia and Kgomotso Christopher who joined Somizi as he dropped some pearls of wisdom relating to life and its everyday struggles.
He also had a mind-blowing episode with Lillian Dube who made some surprising revelations about her life.

The show left thousands of his fans begging for more and hurrying to social media to share their thoughts on both the show and on how Somizi managed to make such a stellar comeback after his ex Mohale’s accusations saw him getting suspended from both radio and TV for months on end.
Mzansi shares their thoughts
Many of them shared how excited they were to catch more installments of the show which they have no doubt will be another massive success.
