South Africans have seemingly had it with Somizi’s “break” from Idols SA. In August this year, Somizi was suspended from the show following abuse allegations leveled against him by his now estranged husband Mohale Motaung. Despite this, fans have called on him to be brought back.

Calls grow louder for Somizi’s return to ‘Idols SA’

It’s been a few months since Somizi Mhlongo and his overly flamboyant personality graced the Idols SA stage.

Somizi was suspended from the popular talent show after Mohale accused him of emotional and physical abuse on more than one occasion.

Since then, Somizi has been replaced by a number of South African celebrities such as Lady Du and Kelly Khumalo but none of them seem to be making fans of the show happy.

Many people have now headed online to call for Somizi’s return before the finale which is set to take place in less than a week. Somizi on the other hand appears to be carrying on with business as usual and even started doing choreography again.

Here’s what the netizens are saying online
