South Africans react to Somizi stealing Dinner at Somizi’s idea

South Africans woke to realize Somizi is at the centre of a storm that could change how people perceive him as he was accused of stealing an idea, Dinner at Somizi’s.

For starters, the Idols SA judge and media personality recently launched his cook show Dinner at Somizi’s and has so far hosted the likes of DJ Zinhle, Jub Jub, and Cassper Nyovest.

Dinner at Somizi

In the show, Somizi takes his hosts to his kitchen, and shows them the ingredients he is going to use while explain in detail.

He cooks in their presence while chit-chatting candid conversations and enjoying themselves along the way.

Somizi serves the meal and the show ends after dinner. Mzansi loves the show for its uniqueness and openness of the conversations as it is not a normal interview set up.


In a twist of events, Somizi has been accused of stealing the idea that was pitched to him by Hastings Moeng.

The media personality is still to respond to the accusations but South Africans have already put him through the court of public opinion. Here are some of the reactions:
