A grade 12 pupil’s dream became true this past weekend thanks to colourful entertainer, Somizi Mhlongo. Nicholas Ndlamhlaba took a leap of faith back in August when he asked SomGaga for a black suit via twitter.
“@somizi SOMIZI PLEASE give me one of your black suits..On the 28th of September it my Matric Dance..Ndiyakucela” the matriculant from Eastern Cape tweeted. Somizi did not hesitate to come to the rescue, he responded by asking how the suit would get to the matric hopeful and then said he hoped they were the same size.
This past Sunday,Nicholas, who calls himself Jiggy Egavas on twitter, posted a picture of himself at his matric dance that was captioned “Thank you to king @somizi for the suit offer I really looked dope..Prom17.” (See post below)
Somizi is clearly a fan of giving judging from the fact that in 2016 he took to social media to announce that he would be giving 30 of his expensive suits to underprivileged matriculants for their matric dance. This saw his celebrity counterparts such as Jimmy Tau getting involved in Somizi’s drive by giving away boxes of shoes and clothes.
Nicholas is a living example of the saying that goes “Ask and you shall receive”.
