The union between Somizi Mhlongo and Mohale Motaung has gained so much attention from South Africans for different reasons. While some people are interested in knowing more about this couple and their relationship because they are of the LGBT side of things, others are interested because of the massive age difference between the two love birds.
Somizi and Mohale’s relationship has been in the news for so long. The couple has faced a lot of controversies, but that should not have surprised them. When a man gets married to a much older woman, tongues wag, talk more when this happens between people of the same sex in Africa. Even with all of these rumors, criticisms, and challenges, Somizi and his husband, Mohale, have remained a strong couple and do not seem to be breaking up any time soon – despite the rumors.
Somizi Mhlongo was born on 23rd December 1972 and is 48 years old. He is an actor, choreographer, radio presenter, and brand ambassador of so many brands. He was born into the home of Mary Twala and Walter Mhlongo, who were both entertainers. Somizi has not always been open with his sexual orientation; initially, he was even in a relationship with a woman with whom he had a daughter, while Mohale Motaung, on the other hand, had always been clear and open with his sexuality.
Mohale, who is 26 years old, was born on 9th July 1994. He is the founder and CEO of Glam Troupe and also a model and an actor.
Somizi is 22 years old older than his husband, Mohale, which has made many people doubt their love. Some fans believe that Mohale Motaung is only married to Somizi for the benefits he is getting. Also, considering that Somizi has a daughter almost the same age as Mohale, it is evident that he is old enough to be his father, which makes fans think it is rather awkward that they are a couple instead.
In response to these speculations regarding what people have to say about their age difference and why Mohale is married to him, the Idols SA judge came out to say that his partner, Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo, works for his money. Somgaga claims that not every person can handle him the way Mohale does, as he is quite a handful. He added that even if Mohale came for the money, he is not complaining.
Somizi Mhlongo has publicly stated his commitment to building a long-lasting marital relationship with Mohale Motaung and has steadfastly rejected the notion that they are not good together or breaking up. He once posted a video of a lady who didn’t want to lockdown with her sixty-year-old husband and said that is how he and his husband will look in 30 years. It means he is determined to grow old with Mohale Motaung despite the speculations which suggest otherwise.
Somizi and Mohale Had an Exquisite and Glamorous Wedding
The two love birds met at Somizi Mhlongo’s book launch in 2017; an event Somizi can still remember clearly. In a post on Instagram, Somizi narrated how Mohale was the 13th person on the line, waiting for him to sign on the book, and immediately he saw him, he knew he would want to spend forever with him.
