Bad News for Somizi as he is cancelled again

15 October 2021

Johannesburg- Former Idols SA judge, Somizi Mhlongo's woes seems far to end as it goes from bad to worse.

While Mhlongo has made peace with the fact that he is officially unemployed after he was dismissed by Mnet on Idols SA and SABC on Metro FM but surely he had hope that those close to him or atleast those whom he treats as friends will be there for him.

When we go through difficulties, we need friend's support on our side but what Somizi has experienced is quite sad.

We have discovered that Idols SA judge Unathi Nkay, who use to be Somizi's bestie on and off the show, has now unfollowed him on Instagram and has stated they are not friends.

After the news that R. Kelly had been found guilty on all counts in his sex-trafficking trial, Unathi took to Instagram and issued a stern warning to her friends.

"To ALL my friends who think you’re going to CONTINUE playing R Kelly in my presence.

“TODAY IT STOPS. No more philosophical B*LL SHIT about you separating the genius from the MONSTER.

“It STOPS TODAY HMKAY……unless you LOVE being a trigger,” she said in a caption accompanied by a picture of R Kelly.

Some of her followers did not take it lightly what she posted and slammed for having double standards and being a hypocrite.

Some other user went on to ask the “Idols SA” judge how she could still be friends with DJ Fresh and Euphonik when they were accused of rape and how she could still be friends with Somizi who was accused of abuse by his estranged husband, Mohale Motaung.

Unathi then hit back,as she made it clear she was not their friend.

She replied to a number of people who asked her the same question, making it clear they were not friends.

One Instagram user even asked if she was friends with Jub Jub, to which she said she was not.

When we checked Unathi's profile, we found that she is not following Somizi on Instagram any more but Somgaga still follows her.

The duo, who worked together on “Idols SA” before Somizi vacated his judging seat a few weeks ago would often post videos and images of each other while working together and would be seen out together socially.

In August, MultiChoice announced that Somizi would no longer be featured on the current season on “Idols SA”. As from then, he has been replaced by various guest judges on the show.
