Somizi Mhlongo has taken the heat for his friend Cassper Nyovest who drew criticism for failing to respect Somhale’s theme for their white wedding: all-white!

When Somizi and Mohale tied the knot at a beautiful white wedding in Muldersdrift, Johannesburg, their friends and family put their best feet forward for the big day.

The theme was to “dress up like you would for your own wedding” and the grooms requested that all their guests wear white.

Unfortunately, Mufasa didn’t get the memo…

Not only did Cassper Nyovest arrive late, but he was wearing the wrong colour altogether! He apologised to the grooms on social media but that didn’t stop fans from dragging him for not sticking to the theme.

Things were beginning to get tense between fans and Somizi was forced to intervene.

Somgaga defended Cassper before explaining why the outfit drama was actually his (Somizi’s) fault rather than the Short ‘n Sweet rapper’s

Somizi shared another side of the story when he revealed that Cassper Nyovest was actually booked to perform at the wedding. As such, he didn’t receive an invite with the theme details like the other guests did.

Somizi explained: “So, what happened was that I requested him to come and perform at the wedding over the phone. We were texting each other and talking over the phone.

“And when he agreed to perform I did not hand over the information to the wedding planners so that they could send the same information they sent to all the guests, like the theme and so forth. I was just communicating with him at the time…”

Cassper was so touched by the public gesture that he replied immediately on Somizi’s Instagram page and wrote, “Didn’t expect you to do this as we spoke in private but it shows that you will show up for me as I will do for you. You should be enjoying your new marriage but you took the time and posted this. Thank you. Love you my dawg. Congrats again”.

Do you think that people blew the incident out of proportion?
