"Somizi is royalty when it comes to South African entertainment, whether you are talking presenting, television, performing, reality shows. Somizi has done it all. There isn't anything Somizi has not done in this industry. Somizi is the god of the South African entertainment industry, and he's not going anywhere."

He documented his journey in his book Dominoes: Unbreakable Spirit, recalling being broke nd some of his blunders making headlines.
He was asked to step back from the Metro FM mic after meeting with his Metro FM bosses in August 2021. This as he was dealing with abuse allegations from his estranged husband Mohale Motaung at the time.
However, he's since made a comeback on radio on Metro FM's 9am to 12pm The Bridge alongside Quinton “Naked DJ” Masina and Khutso Theledi.
