Somizi has recently been dragged into the mud following the accusation he “stole” the concept of his show, “Dinner At Somizi’s”.
The show which recently began in July has had many South African celebrities thereon .
It all started when the brain behind the show, Hastings Moeng, sent an email to Somizi and Themba on July 28 2014, proposing a cooking show Dinner Kwa Somizi.
The Twitter user said: “On 28 July 2014, Hastings Moeng proposed DinnerAtSomizis to Somizi & Themba. the outline of the show is materially almost like the one now flighted (to the shock of Mr Moeng). See the 2014 email below and choose for yourself.”
He continued the tweet by saying, “On 2 September 2016 Hastings Moeng wrote to Legend (the current producer) with a synopsis for #DinnerAtSomizis . you’ll see the treatment synopsis below. And judge for yourself. Why is IP theft so rife in entertainment? Multichoice is being coy despite being shown this.”
However, Somizi said nothing about the allegation during yesterday and lots of of his fans got confused on either to believe the story or not.
Reacting thereto , Somizi shared a video of himself on Instagram treating his face by wearing a mask and singing an extended to Kelly Khumalo’s hit single Empini.
A part of the lyrics say “Don’t you recognize that folks don’t want to ascertain others succeed? They get surprised, they hurt you whilst watching you right within the eyes…”
The content could also be directed to those that laid accusation to him.
His followers were divided with some expressing their disappointment at his silence with others wanting answers.
He was also faced with another accusation by a user who goes by the name Kea Mogetse who wrote:
@keamogetse45: “he steals people’s ideas Vele he did that to me early this year ,after pitching a thought to him he ran with it and made it his , but because it had been more of an ngo thing, I didn’t care much although i used to be hurt , my love for him changed then his a thief, pity I don’t have Twitter i used to be also getting to be there guns blazing, I hope he pays”
@miss_mercy1: “How relevant is that this song to you right now?? Jesus, i assume you’re innocent till proven guilty. a number of us will just sit right and watch”
@ndingu_amanda: “It isn’t funny. If you’ve got any thread of decency and integrity, come boldly and deny the allegations or admit you were wrong and do right by the guy. You a fallible human, you’re not always right. Being called out once you are wrong isn’t HATE.”
