What a coincidence that the show happens to be the exact replica of the man’s proposal. Love Somizi, but this response is not it! https://t.co/7KbcHKwmph

So Somizi’s phone doesn’t have apps then coz you really can’t sign up for anything digital without a personal email address. That’s a very tough life. So glad he got an email address two months ago.

Somizi’s video admitting that he actually got the proposal years ago might just cause more trouble. he’s saying “yes I got it then but I didn’t want it and now I do”. It’s looking like they waited for the proposal to go stale then launch the show. It sounds very calculated.

On 28 July 2014, Hastings Moeng proposed #DinnerAtSomizis to Somizi & Themba. The description of the show is materially similar to the one now flighted (to the shock of Mr Moeng). See the 2014 email below and decide for yourself. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/QVcpJIAY8o
