If you ever thought Somizi was self-centred, than think again.

The larger than life TV personality has shown the world his softer side when he announced he’ll be giving away 30 of his designer suits to underprivileged teenage boys to wear to their matric dance in the spirit of Mandela day.

Somgaga took to social media to explain that he’ll kick start his Mandela day by sharing some of his designer clothes with the public.

Somizi will donate 30 designer suits that he’s worn to previous events.

"Mandela day is around the corner. Last year I started a raise a matric dance dress campaign. My aim was to raise 67 dresses. Ended up getting 300 dresses for girls around the country. This year is like to grow the campaign by also raising 67 suits for matric boys. I'll start with myself. I'm giving away 30 of my suits I've won on previous events. I'll give to boys size 28 to 32."

Somgaga also challenged some of his high profiled friends including the likes of Jimmy Tau, Andile Ncube, Tbo Touch, DJ Tira, Trevor Noah and others to donate a suit too.

"I'm challenging my friends to bring theirs. I'm also challenging everyone to go to their neighboring high schools and donate their dresses and suits. My friends u know where to find me and I know u have suits."
