"It was not a mistake, I did it because it was a business decision."

There's no doubt Somizi Mhlongo is on top of his game.

But with all the success, the Idols SA judge, reality TV star and author says he has some regrets.

The biggest? Doing a radio show with Khanyi Mbau and Ntombi Ngcobo.

“Doing that radio show last year was something I regret. It was not a mistake, I did it because it was a business decision.

"I was asked to host the Samas last year and there were politics that I was on the ‘other side’ and they wanted to use SABC talent,” Somizi explained on Metro FM’s Great Escape show.

He adds that even though doing the show was the biggest regret of his career he couldn’t turn it down because it tied in with his Samas gig.

“But after that [the Samas] it was the biggest regret of my career. I always see the light in everything. I used it as a learning opportunity," he added.

"It was preparing me for bigger things - the breakfast show.”

Somizi is now a co-host on Metro FM’s The Fresh Breakfast alongside DJ Fresh.
