Somizi Mhlongo has been a fan-favourite judge on Idols SA for about seven years and has since revealed the things that make it possible. Somizi spoke a few weeks on how much he fell into depression and what he did to recover. It seems that these days, Somizi is willing to dig deep into his personal life, sharing with people how he gets his things done. He is more than willing to make fans understand the real Somizi, an emotional and human being with feelings. He doesn’t want to be considered a person of steel.
For a long time, fans got used to knowing Somizi as a junior judge alongside Randall Abraham and Unathi Nkayi. At the end of season 17, Somizi fell off with Unathi, which changed many things from a management point of view. Shockingly, during the off-season after season 17, Idols SA announced that Unathi Nkayi and Randall would not be with them. Shockingly, during the off-season after season 17, Idols SA announced that Unathi Nkayi and Randall would not be with them. This fallout went public, and it called for action from Idols SA management, and they had to do it with the future in mind. Undoubtedly, the trio of Randall, Unathi and Somizi remains one of the best judges ever.
Somizi’s character in Idols SA does not directly reflect him in real life. The news meant that Somizi was the sole survivor, and he would be the most senior judge. And to show for it, the forty-nine-year-old judge showed fans what he does each morning before going out to Idols SA.
What does Somizi do to make himself the judge we know on Idols SA?
Today, Somizi showed Mzansi what he did before going out for the show, and it’s a good reflection of his everyday routine before going out for Idols SA. He started his day by swimming, finding love in himself. After swimming, he went on to akfast and poured a drink to flash down the food. After that, Somizi went to work, and like always, he produced fire. Audio behind the scenes says Somizi finds peace with himself as he grows up.
At the start of season 18, Somizi clashed with new judge Thembi Seete on camera, and things looked like they were going south. Thanks to Somizi’s experience and composure, he turned the relationship around, and the two stars are now close buddies. Without this time alone, Somizi may have failed to lead by example as a senior judge to Thembi and JR.
