Media personality Somizi Mhlongo recently shared a very interesting fact about his life – that he is pansexual.
He shared the information with his long-time friend, Cassper Nyovest, in the most recent episode of The Braai Show with Cass
Somizi was speaking about the public’s interest in his sexuality and how tired he is of their curiosity.
He also addressed the long-discussed topic of him having had a child with a woman.
Somizi became a father after a brief relationship with actress and news anchor, Palesa Madisakwane, when he was younger. The pair had a daughter whom they named Bahumi
During his Braai Show episode, Somizi also said he was open to dating anyone, even it was a woman, because he was more attracted to a person than the gender they identified as.
The technical term for this type of orientation is pansexuality and it falls on the broad spectrum of sexuality.
“Even the baby mama knows that when she told me she liked me, I told her I was gay. She said I was lying and she tested me. I decided to go for it and that’s how it happened.
“I was transparent from the onset. I hate always explaining myself. I am not gay, I am a pansexual, I am attracted to whoever I’m attracted to at the time. So even if I meet a beautiful woman now, I’d date her.”
