Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung is finally taking to Instagram to deal with the recent rumours about his cooking show, “Dinner At Somizi’s”.
The “Idols SA“ judge took to social media to let his fans and followers know that he are going to be doing an Instagram Live session on Thursday, Citizenship Day at 7pm to deal with any questions people may have for him.
“See you guys at 7pm tonight, we’re going live, I’m going live. Any questions you would like to inquire from me , I’ll be there to answer.
“Decisively, apparently, concurrently and allegedly, i will be able to answer okay. i will be able to see you at 7 o’clock, we’ll be talking the newest story, “Dinner At Somizi’s” and lots of more.
“So whatever you would like to inquire from me I’ll gladly, gladly, gladly answer you. That’s the sweetness about this platform, you’ll hear three sides of the story,” he said within the video.
Somizi was accused of property theft for his hit show “Dinner at Somizi’s”.
Evidence emerged on social media to prove that the thought of “Dinner at Somizi’s” wasn’t Somizi’s original idea, but that of Hastings Moeng.
In his proposal to Somizi, Moeng stated that he had had the thought of the show since 2010 and hoped the duo would assist him in bringing the show to life.
“Please receive this as an expression of interest to partner up with you on the thought . I’ve not done a show before, though i’m confident that between us we’ve a database of the proper people to bring this to life,” wrote Moeng.
He added: ‘“Dinner kwa Somizi’ may be a weekly lifestyle and entertainment chat show that sees South African all-round entertainer Somizi Mhlongo chat to fellow entertainers over dinner.
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

Despite the controversy round the show, MultiChoice indicated the allegations wouldn’t “impact” on the broadcasting of the show.
