Media personality Somizi Mhlongo’s estranged husband, actor Mohale Motaung, announced via Instagram today (4 October) that he is now a radio presenter on Opulence Radio. 

And just in case you wondered, Opulence Radio is described  as “an affluent online radio station that drives opulent lifestyle through edutainment” on its Twitter profile. Guess Mohale has earned his stripes in the “soft life”, judging by the lavish lifestyle he got accustomed to during his marriage to Somizi…  


Mohale Motaung has just added “radio presenter” to his list of talents. Taking to Instagram, the actor revealed that he has spent months in training at Opulence Radio and he is now a presenter at the radio station.

“ANNOUNCEMENT ‼️???? ???????? I have officially joined the new online radio station @opulenceradio as a radio presenter. ????????????????????,” wrote Mohale on Instagram.

“I’ve spent months training and today it finally pays off. A special shoutout to @relebogile who used to allow me to shadow her radio talk shows and learn so much,” he continued.

He added that he will be on air every weekday from 06:00 to 09:00.

“Join me every morning, Monday to Friday from 6-9. The link to listen is on my bio or you can go to Happy Listening. ????????,” he added.

While Mohale Motaung has just joined radio, his estranged husband Somizi Mhlongo lost his radio gig on Metro FM in August. 

Somizi Mhlongo, who co-hosted The Bridge on Metro FM with Dineo Ranaka had taken “some time off” in August. This was due to the abuse allegations made against him by Mohale Motaung. 

At the beginning of August, Mohale Motaung claimed that Somizi Mhlongo physically and emotionally abused him via leaked audio clips. 

“I took my keys and walked out, he took a knife. I was about to exit, so he said to me, ‘if you exit… I’m going to kill us both.’ So I took my keys and ran. He grabbed the knife and said ‘if you walk out, I’m going to stab you.’ Now I see a different person. I was sh*t scared and walked back into the house. He said ‘let’s talk.’ He cried and we moved on,” said Mohale in the leaked clips.

Following the abuse allegations, Somizi Mhlongo had taken some “time off” from Metro FM and Idols SA. Although the broadcasters of both shows did not mention how long the “time off” would last, Somizi confirmed his unemployment.
