Media personality Somizi Mhlongo is looking for media darling Bonang Matheba in New York City via a video posted on Instagram today (24 November).


Somizi is living his best soft life in the Big Apple — while taking a stroll at Time Square he sang Alicia Keys and Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind. The media personality then asks a man dressed as Grover, the blue muppet on Sesame Street if he’s seen Bonang.

“I’m looking for my sister. Do you know Bonang Matheba?,” he said.

The man looks confused and Somizi then moves on to a person dressed as Minnie Mouse calling her Minnie Dlamini. Take a look…


Somizi left for New York a few days ago. The media personality flew first class with a Louis Vuitton face shield. 

He seems to have stopped in Dubai where he spent some time in Iris Dubai which he calls “Konka Dubai” referencing the Soweto-based “millionaire’s playground.”

Before getting to Iris Dubai, Somizi got in a little dance at the airport. He revealed that he did not shower but it was okay because that’s not what he was there for.

“Whilst waiting in the lounge…still in my last nights pj’s…..haven’t had a bath but ke i didn’t come here for that lol,” he captioned the video. 

The media personality is not alone, he is on a “bestiecation” with his tennis partner Ndo Maleho. The pair took a “bestiecation” to Cape Town in September. 

He arrived in New York on Monday 22 November and had a solution for the cold weather — Fur! 


The media personality recently revealed that he is not gay, but pansexual — in an episode of The Braai Show With Cassper Nyovest which aired on 10 November.

“I’m not gay, I am a pansexual,” he said to Cassper.

“I’m attracted to whoever I’m attracted to at the time. So even if I meet a beautiful woman now, I’d date her,” he continued.

“Even the baby mama knows that when she told me she liked me, I told her I was gay. She said I was lying and she tested me. I decided to go for it and that’s how it happened,” he added.
