‘The money you gave me is missing R80k’: Somizi to MaMkhize

Did Shauwn ‘MaMkhize’ Mkhize gift Somizi Mhlongo R20 000? Because he seems to think R80 000 was missing from his birthday present.

Media personality Somizi Mhlongo jokingly told businesswoman and Royal AM owner Shauwn “MaMkhize” Mkhize,  the birthday gift she gave him is missing R80 000 – on 23 December.


Somizi Mhlongo celebrated his 49th birthday with a star-studded bash. The theme of the birthday bash was “glitz and glitz.” MaMkhize posted pictures from the evening on Instagram alongside actress Pearl Thusi and singer Kelly Khumalo.

“Happy Birthday to one of my dearest, oldest friends @somizi ????????????????????. You were blessed enough to see another year so make the most of it. May happiness and everlasting love always find you. ???????? We dazzled in sequence????❤️ we rocked it as per your wish my Chomy ❤️❤️❤️❤️ @kellykhumaloza @pearlthusi,” she captioned the post. 

Somizi took to the comments section to let MaMkhize know that the money she gave him is missing R80 000.

“Friend, the money you gave me is missing R80 000. Must I come fetch it or will you bring it,” wrote Somizi when roughly translated to English.

Does this mean MaMkhize gifted Somizi R20 000 for his “missing” R80 000 to add up to R100 000?
