Mhlongo opened up about his former relationship with Matheba, saying he never imagined their friendship would come to an end.
Speaking on SABC 3′ s Real Talk with Anele, Metro FM breakfast show co-host and SA Idols judge Somizi Mhlongo opened up about his former relationship with TV host Bonang Matheba.
“I loved that girl and still do and 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. The rumour mill has it that Matheba believed Somizi had told DJ Zinhle about Matheba’s affair with her ex-boyfriend AKA.
Mhlongo further went on to touch on how much he valued friendship and the love he gets from fans.
When asked about his recent achievement of co-hosting the breakfast show with former 5FM drive host now Metro FM breakfast host DJ Fresh, Mhlongo responded by saying, “It is all the work of God; this is among the biggest blessings in my life and I know this because I was very nervous the Sunday of April 2nd. It is awesome to work with someone who supports and motivates you like Fresh does. At my age I could’ve been arrogant and allowed my ego and social media to get to me; however, I didn’t and every day is great.”
Mhlongo also made mention of his autobiography, which will be in stores in two weeks. Season 2 of his reality show Living the Dream with Somizi airs on Wednesday on DStv’s Mzansi Magic.
