In his long career, media personality Somizi Mhlongo has been accused of many things, but he simply draws the line at the accusation that he wears fake Gucci.

The media personality took some time out this weekend, braced the cold front to go to a Gucci store just so he could prove to naysayers that he only wears the real Gucci.

Somizi felt compelled to have his name erased from the viral Instagram page that recently popped up, whose main mandate is to expose SA celebrities for allegedly wearing fake designer clothes — Gucci in particular.

The Instagram account is called “Fake Gucci community” page.

Somizi took to his Instagram page to say how much he loved and was a fan of the page. He added that — like many others — he scrolled down the page in pure fascination.

However, he was shook when he got to the bottom half of the page and found that he was mentioned as one of the celebrities who wear “fake” Gucci. His Gucci bucket hat was dubbed a fake.

So he set out to set the record straight. To prove he only wears real Gucci, Somizi went to a Gucci store and took a video of his profile on the store computer — where his transactions in the store have been recorded.

Watch the video below:

Somizi is not the only celeb that landed on the list. Actress Omuhle Gela, musician Mahoota and Babes Wodumo's hubby Mampintsha were also tagged as celebs allegedly flaunting fake Gucci. 

Unlike Somizi, the rest of the celebs on that page have yet to respond to the claims.

Meanwhile, people on Twitter have been loving the page simply because of how savage it is.

The person running the account clearly has no Fs to give about the people he mentions on his page because he tags them in the post to make sure they know that he/she thinks they are wearing fake Gucci. It's messy!

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:
