Media personality Somizi Mhlongo has announced he’ll be doing a cooking show in partnership with 1Magic. This comes after fans begged him to show off his cooking and hosting skills in his own show.
But his announcement has received mixed reactions, with some South Africans saying he only got the gig due to his celebrity status.
Somizi has been sharing onset snippets from his show on Instagram, giving followers a glimpse at what to expect from the show and a sneak peek at the guests he’ll be hosting at his home. By the looks of things – Somizi being an unmatched entertainer – the show is going to be filled with jaw-dropping scenes, both of food and due to the conversations he’ll have with industry friends.
No one is stopping the "qualified" chefs from having a cooking show. Somizi loves to cook. Let him interview his celebrity friends and enjoy his life. Everything is a BIG issue on Twitter.

Can't speak about how the show came about coz I don't have the info on that but I'd watch a Somizi cooking show. I would. Making great TV isn't just about the cooking itself.— Harper (@WayneH__) June 30, 2020
