This Wednesday, Somizi launches his much anticipated autobiography Dominoes, Unbreakable Spirit, which delves into the star's personal issues, including living with an illness, sexual assault allegations and his first times.
Yesterday, Somgaga took to social media to reveal the cover of his book, and informed his fans that it launches in three days; and in SomG style the first 50 people to buy it will have autographed copies.
Dominoes, Unbreakable Spirit is co-written by journalist and author Lesley Mofokeng. Speaking to SowetanLive, Lesley mentions:
“I wanted to call the book ‘Ooh Shem’, but he thought it was too playful.”
There is a lot more that is covered than what has already been reported in the media. The book is covering the 45-year life of Somizi. Some of it I’d like to think is X-rated, but still fun to read and jaw-dropping.”
He talks about a disease that he is living with. In the book he talks about going for a check-up and finding out that everything else is ok except for this one thing.”
Speaking to the publication, Lesley also mentions a chapter in the book called, The First Time; where Somizi lists his first times. “I think that will be jaw-dropping. There are some sensational revelations.
“Maybe awkward moments too; I think that’s the chapter that will get people talking and if you want some sensational titbits rush to that chapter.”
Another chapter, Lesley mentions will catch people’s attention is the one that explores Somizi’s 2007’s sexual assault allegation.
“There is also a chapter focusing on the downfall of Somizi Mhlongo. This was a point in his life where things started going haywire. It’s about a story that was widely reported about in the papers that he sexually assaulted a man,” Mofokeng explains.
“This was his chance to state his case and say his side of the story. He is quite honest about what happened, how they met, how it ended and the shock that he had when the police came to take him in for sexual assault.”
