Game on: Is Somizi and his tennis partner acing it on and off the court?

From super-sized tennis ball token gifts to botox to boating it up with a glass of champers, are we talking game, set and match for Somizi and his tennis partner?

Media personality Somizi Mhlongo looked smitten with his tennis mate Ndo Maleho in photos posted to his Instagram on Wednesday 29 September, from their Cape Town getaway.


The former Idols SA judge has been handling unemployment quite well… on a luxurious vacation in Cape Town. In several photos shared to his Instagram account, Somizi is seen soaking up the sun on yacht, enjoying bubble baths at an elite villa and brunching with who may be a new bae. 

Is Somizi’s “vacation” actually a “baecation”? Well, the first hint was the media personality’s Instagram stories with a mystery guy in the background.

At the time, Somgaga did not reveal the face of the guy he had been spending his time with. However, in a follow-up Instagram post, Somizi shared several photos with the not-so mystery man in a yacht. The pair looked smitten with glasses of champagne in their hands.

“Die kaap is lekker. Fun times with my ride @ndomaleho. Rocking @weetoimprint shorts and T @Bentley_Photography_sa thanks once again for rocking up at short notice….love yo work,” he wrote in the caption. 

The account Somizi tagged in the post belongs to Ndo Maleho. The pair often hit the tennis court together and Ndo’s Instagram posts show that he was also at the Silo Hotel having mimosas just like the former Metro FM radio host was! Here’s a look.

In several Instagram posts, the pair are seen together on the tennis court, which is a sport Somizi seems to enjoy. Ndo on the other hand thinks it is the perfect escape. 

“There’s a LOT going on right now. No better place to escape it all….than on a tennis court. ????????????,” he wrote on Instagram.

Somizi also seems to have signed Ndo’s super-sized tennis ball as a token gift. 

The former Idols SA judge also booked his “tennis buddy” in for a botox section around the same time he went for his. 

From scarves to socks, the pair also have their love for Gucci in common!

The media personality announced that he is getting a divorce in August. This followed the abuse allegations made against him by his estranged husband, actor Mohale Motaung.
