Somizi revealed on Monday that he had proposed to his partner of eight months, Mohale Motaung
The couple have been together for less than a year, but they are ready to spend forever with each other. “My bestie @mohale_77 life is sweeter with u by my side,” Somizi wrote on Instagram. “SomHale”, as their fans call them, are set to walk down the aisle within the next 12-months – some believe it could before the end of the year. Somizi has already indicated that they are ready to start a family. “I still want to have another child. [The decision comes from] me being selfless because my partner doesn’t have a child and he wants a child,” he told True Love magazine last year.
Here’s a look at how their romance unfolded
They met eight months ago
Somizi and Mohale met in July last year and have been inseparable ever since. “We met in July at the exclusive Louis Vuitton and Moët & Chandon event, at which the top 20 customers in Jo’burg were invited for the launch of a new champagne,” he told True Love magazine last year.
Somizi added that they were checking each other out. “He’s physically attractive and is business savvy and mature… I saw him as I walked into the event and was curious about him. It’s obvious that we were… sussing each other out.”
Two days after the event Mohale sent Somizi a direct message on Instagram, and the rest is history.
Somizi invited his new love interest to one of his book launches that same month. Mohale posted a picture from the event, thanking Somizi for the “good read”. Somizi then commented: “Thank u for the support now see u soon at the cathedral. U know for what mos (sic).” Hmmm, a cathedral?! Looks like Somizi was smitten from day one.
