Mzansi Fumes As Somizi Snags Two New Gigs At Metro FM – Here’s Why

Somizi Mhlongo has just snagged two new gigs at Metro FM. Ordinarily, this should be a cause for celebration. But it appears South Africans are not having it. They are unimpressed that the Idol SA judge should be picked for the two new shows.

Somizi has been announced as co-host of The Bridge alongside DJ Naled and Naledi and Khutso Theledi. He will also co-host The Weekend Breakfast Sounds Good with Mat Elle.

For the Living The Dream With Somizi star, that is one big win. However, South Africans have slammed the decision to have him on the two shows mentioned earlier while wondering out loud whether there are no other talents who could have taken the jobs and done well at them.

As far as the critics of his choice as co-host are concerned, institutions are busy recycling known faces instead of giving platforms to talented people who might not be known but who could do a splendid job regardless.

Somizi has his supporters, though, most of who insist that he has earned his stripes and if potential employers see him as the best man for the job, why not? Somizi has no words for those criticising the choice of him.
