TV and radio personality, Somizi Mhlongo has put people on blast for believing that gay men cannot be friends with straight guys
Somizi and one of his best friends, TT Mbha have often become a topic of discussion on social media because of their different sexualities and friendship.
During a recent interview on Trending SA, Somgaga lashed out at people for suggesting that he could not be friends with TT who is heterosexual.
“What is wrong with two people who are genuinely friends but their sexuality is different? What is wrong with two people who are friends, or lovers, but their races are different? Let’s stop this stigma. Not every gay man wants to be in your pants. Also, we have a type,” he said.
Somizi who is in a happy romantic relationship and plans to marry his partner, revealed on his Metro FM recently that he also wanted another child
“I still want to have another child. (The decision comes) out of me being selfless because my partner doesn’t have a child and he wants a child,” he said.
The Idols SA judge poured cold water over recent rumours that he and his partner got secretly engaged, explaining that he just wanted to protect their relationship.
“I do it to protect the person I am seeing. Can you imagine if you knew all the people I had dated before, they will forever now be known as Somizi’s boyfriend or Somizi’s ex. They lose their identity based on the person I am. I will do everything in my power to protect his identity. My relationship is not a secret, it is private,” Somizi said.
