The man who wears many hats is back at it again. Somizi Mhlongo is securing the bags left right and center making us wonder if he has the same 24 hours as the rest of us?

according to Phil Mphela, Somizi will be returning to his very first love is acting. We don’t know if it is his first love but it is the art that kick-started his whole career as a media personality.

Taking to his Entertainment Alert they revealed that Somaga will be starring in a short film called The Gang which be starring industry greats including Seputla Sebogodi, Kagiso Medupe, and Thami Ngubeni. They also revealed that the film is currently under production.

Phil and his team took us back to memory lane when they listed all Somizi’s acting gigs which date as far as 1987. Little 13-year-old Somizi starred in a film called Scavengers. Then he starred in his break-out role Sarafina and other productions such as Cry The Beloved Country as well as other theatre and TV productions.

The many hats he wears include being a radio and TV presenter, choreographer, recording artist, MC, author of a cookbook, and Idols SA judge.

Did we forget to mention that Somizi is also a motivational speaker? After a heated gym session, he took to Instagram and narrated how he got a DM from a woman who was about to commit suicide.

“I decided to go through my DMs. Thank you for trusting and sharing your stories. There’s one person who said she was five minutes from committing suicide.”

“She decided to go through Instagram and thanked me. She said that I was on time. I’m glad that I’m not selfish and I share. I hope that my stories will encourage you, even when I am going through the most,” he shared.

Recently Somgaga hit 4 million followers on Instagram and he had to celebrate with a bottle of GH Mumm.

“Its been an amazing journey so far here on Instagram…4 MILLION OF U LATER. Thanks for the love support tears laughter and more. Here’s to a better tomorrow. Now to prove that you’re here…..how about u each give me R1. I need a shelter in Clifton Cape Town so that would cover the 10% deposit lol,” he joked.

Somgaga recently had his dose of vitamins to make sure that his money-making machine, his body, is well taken care of. “Getting some much-needed supplements and vitamins and oxygen for my body. With traveling and gigs in the next 5 days back to back. I gotta make sure that I look after this money-making machine,” he wrote.
