A host of South African celebrities attended the annual Hollywoodbets Durban July which took place at the Greyville Racecourse on Saturday 2 July. No one wanted to miss out on one of the biggest social events of the year…and Somizi Mhlongo and his estranged husband, Mohale Motaung, were of course bound to end up “bumping into” one another at some point…

According to reports, the pair had a brief, awkward moment when they both showed up on the dance floor in DJ Tira’s Afrotainment marquee.

For some couples, seeing each other after a break-up might not be a big deal.

For others, however, the last thing you want to do is get in each other’s faces in public – especially if things ended on a particularly sour note, as it did with Idols SA judge Somizi and actor and radio personality Mohale.

Unfortunately for the former celebrity couple, bumping into one another at one of the year’s biggest horse racing, fashion and entertainment events, were basically inevitable.

SowetanLIVE reports that the pair came face to face on the dance floor in DJ Tira’s VVIP Afrotainment marquee where Somizi and Big Brother’s Themba Broly were the hosts.

Just smile and wave?

Mohale and his new bestie, Lasizwe Dambuza, came into the marquee just as Somizi introduced amapiano sensation Pabi Cooper to the stage.

Naturally, all eyes were on Mohale and Lasizwe waiting to see if there would be any reaction to the fact that Somizi was in the same room.

Instead of becoming uncomfortable, Mohale proceeded to the dance floor where it looked like he was having a blast.

Somizi did the same while trying not to take note of his ex who was only a few feet away from him.

According to SowetanLIVE, despite them trying to act as if it was no big deal, the tension in the marquee was palpable…
