Former Idols SA judge Somizi has reacted to the ban he received from visiting Zimbabwe, stating he feels sad about it all.
The songster had been invited to attend the reopening of the prestigious Garwe Restaurant as a guest chef and would have made the trip. But the Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe had mounted protests against his visit.
The apostolic body had cited Somizi’s sexual orientation as the reason for the protests and the reason to ban him from visiting the country. Somizi is openly gay.
Reacting to the ban, in a recent post to Instagram, the former Idols SA judge had noted that it is sad that people are still being oppressed in Zimbabwe. He said they might keep the country to themselves, because it is better in South Africa, where the fights of minority sexualities are respected.
He also affirmed he won’t stop speaking out for the minorities. You can check out his post below.
