Somizi is being honored by a local artist of his late mother.


South African media personality, Somizi Mhlongo, took to social media to give credit to local artist, Olwethu Patuleni, who created a jacket with an image of his mother, the late Mary Twala, printed on the back. According to Somizi, he had noticed the artist’s work on social media, and had reached out to him as he was drawn to his painting of his mother.
He then explained that along with the beautiful jacket, he had surprised him with a framed painting of his mother. He stated, “When the parcel arrived today I was wondering why is it in a big box kanti this sweet talented young man added an actual framed portrait of my mom and as a surprise gift…coz I only paid for the jacket and the drawing on it.”

So when I saw a painting of my mom on twitter by this young man
@olwethudahandsome ines immediately drawn to it……and that’s when I had an idea of him making a portrait of my parents on a denim jacket. I’m initially i wanted to wear it at my mom’s funeral but because he is based in cape town time was not on our side…..but I still insisted that he makes it…..through the help of my PA @iam_sphekay he was able to track him and found him and gave him the brief…..oh boy did he deliver……when the parcel arrived today I was wondering why is it in a big box kanti this sweet talented young man added an actual framed portrait of my mom and as a surprise gift…coz I only paid for the jacket and the drawing on it…..thank u young man and may all yo dreams come true…..I’m probably gonna wear this once and frame it as well….ANDIHAMBI NDODWA…….MSHEFI AND MAMPINGA GOT MY BACK\
