Resilience in the face of backlash

Unfortunately, in the last couple of weeks there were not many compliments for the presenter who faced criticism over placing a logo of his face on some of the items. Some people even called the label cringe.

“Branding/logo could have been simpler to reflect the target audience. While kids know Somizi it’s parents who will buy the clothes and relate with brand. Kids on the other hand relate to simple concepts like a cute baby animal,a fruit and a cute name rather than Sompire,” one person said.
