Media personality Somizi Mhlongo shared a video of himself getting botox injections via an Instagram post on Thursday 9 September. 

‘DID YOU DO?’ ASKS SOMIZI

The media personality shared a short clip of his botox treatment on Instagram which already racked up 340 000 views. Somizi had his fans, followers and DJ Maphorisa in stitches when he jokingly screamed in pain and then asked the doctor “did you do?”

“I didn’t feel it,” he added.

Somizi’s treatment was done by aesthetic doctor Dr Nicole Kanaris. She explained that numbing cream is applied on patients which lasts at least 15 minutes and they use a vibrational device that helps distract patients. She was impressed that Somizi did not feel any pain.

“They say no pain, no gain‼️ We really try to minimize pain so very little is felt and in @somizi case nothing at all‼️,” wrote Kanaris on Instagram.

Celebrities took to the comments section to tell Somizi what they thought of his treatment. 

“It’s the did (you) do for me 😂😂😂😂,” wrote DJ Maphorisa.

“You are stubborn and do not want to grow old,” wrote DJ Tira when his comment was roughly translated to English. 

SOMIZI’S FIRST BOTOX TREATMENT WAS IN 2020

In July 2020, the former Idols SA judge revealed he had his first botox injection which he felt was “long overdue”.

“It’s been long overdue……and if (you) know me (you) know my struggles with my skin….and I must say I see a huge improvement……thanks to @drkanaris I even did my first botox ever…..loved it…..so don’t be shy to hit her up for anything skin related,” wrote Somizi on Instagram. 

Somizi’s botox treatments come just a few days after he confirmed his unemployment for the first time. The media personality was previously taking “time off” from his radio gig on Metro FM and his judging role on Idols SA. This was because of the abuse allegations made against him by his estranged husband, Mohale Motaung.
