It’s a bittersweet moment for Somizi after his late mother made her debut – and final screen appearance – on Beyonce’s acclaimed visual album Black Is King

The album – which dropped last week – featured the veteran actress alongside several other SA stars like Nandi Madida, Nambitha Ben-Mazwai and Connie Chiume.
