Somizi & Mohale: The Union (Showmax Original)
In this four-part wedding special, we go on a journey with Somizi Mhlongo and Mohale Motaung as they celebrate their love.
South Africa’s first gay celebrity wedding special kicks off with an episode that captures all the magic of their traditional wedding in Kibler Park, Johannesburg, in September 2019, which merged their respective Zulu and Sotho cultures in a flamboyant celebration full of romance, gorgeous decor, dazzling chandelier cakes, GH Mumm champagne and multiple costume changes.
Don’t miss the chance to see the special moments shared between Somizi and his mother, the late Mary Twala, on his big day.
Seasons 1 to 4 of this addictive series, where Somizi invites us to take a peek behind the scenes of his fabulous life, are streaming on Showmax, and Season 1 is currently available to binge-watch on DStv Now, too.
In the most recent season, we see Somizi grappling with several issues in his personal life, including his relationship with Bahumi (his daughter) who has since dropped out of university, and a near-fatal car accident that nearly claims the life of Bahumi’s mom. There’s also, finally, some kind of resolution between Somgaga and Bonang in Season 4 to look forward to.
