Somizi Mhlongo is a product of huge talents, as his late parents, Mary Twala and Ndaba Mhlongo were amazing actors in the South African industry.


Taking to social media this Wednesday, the radio personality celebrated his father, by sharing an old funny clip, where the late man is seen acting.

Som said all the fame and wealth his late dad didn’t enjoy, he is enjoying them and he wouldn’t allow people exploit him like they did with their father.

“I sometimes take for granted or forget whose seed I am, or too humble about it, let me pride myself. I was birthed by the first to ever do it NDABA WALTER MHLONGO, MSHEFANE TO MANY, and some wonder why I am what and who I am; its no miracle. I’m the apple he is the tree; multi talented dad, multi award winning actor, TONY AWARD nominee for best choreography for SARAFINA on BROADWAY. SINGER. DANCER. ACTOR, INSTRUMENTALISTS. COMEDIAN…..ETC…”

“He never got the fortune to match his talents and contributions into the arts…..FAME AND FORTUNE never became his reality…..he was just famous, and exploited. And that is why I will never compromise on my worth, if u don’t have the budget for me try next door, and this I do it for my parents ,in their honor. FAME AND FORTUNE shall be my reality, coz I worth it.’
