Somizi has been trending on Twitter over the comments he made about Black Twitter…

The Idols SA judge has become the latest star to ‘fall’ after he was dragged by tweeps for telling South African social media users not to be negative and have a bad attitude

But instead of paying heed to his advice, tweeps decided to ‘cancel’ him instead.

Somizi is heard saying in the video, “Stop with your Black Twitter mentality…

“And this Black Twitter thing must also end to have a negative connotation… Black Twitter should be about black excellence… black support… black celebration.
