Unathi Nkayi, a judge on Idols SA, has disclosed that she and her former colleague Somizi Mhlongo are no longer friends. This comes after she was accused of having double standards when she stated that R&B singer R Kelly, who was convicted guilty of sexual assault and trafficking earlier this month, will be muted on her show.
Somizi and his estranged partner, Mohale Motaung, were still spotted posing cheerfully in images while out attending events together before Somizi was accused of abuse by his recently estranged husband.
Unathi now claims that the two of them are no longer friends, which appears to be the case. Unathi made this startling admission after an Instagram follower chastised her for having "double standards."
The radio DJ resorted to social media to warn her pals after R Kelly was found guilty on all counts in his sex-trafficking trial.
“To ALL my friends who think you’re going to CONTINUE playing R Kelly in my presence. TODAY IT STOPS. No more philosophical BULL SHIT about you separating the genius from the MONSTER. It STOPS TODAY HMKAY……unless you LOVE being a trigger,” she wrote.
Despite the fact that she remains friends with DJ Fresh and Euphonik, both of whom have been accused of rape, as well as Somizi, who has been accused of physical and emotional abuse, the Instagram user does not want to be around people who listen to R Kelly.
Meanwhile, according to IOL, she has unfollowed Somizi on social media, despite the fact that he continues to follow her on Instagram. Following the allegations, Somizi was removed from his role as a judge on the famous talent program.
