IT’s expected to be the wedding of the year! But rumour has it that there’s already trouble in paradise . . . And they haven’t even said their ‘I DOs’ yet!
This comes as high-flying TV personality Somizi “SomGaga” Mhlongo’s Ben 10 fiance allegedly has a roaming eye.
According to sources, Mohale Motaung (24) got upclose and personal with a young hunk named Vuyo Pan (19) at his 24th birthday dinner at the Palazzo Hotel in Montecasino in Fourways, Jozi, a fortnight ago.
Somizi allegedly wasn’t there to keep an eye on his man because of an alleged fight they had the night before. But SomGaga’s friends were more than happy to give the flamboyant 45-year-old star a blow-by-blow recount of events.
“He wasn’t there. But when Somizi’s friends noticed that Mohale was sitting next to Vuyo and were very cosy, they started calling Somizi, informing him that there was someone busy with his fiance. They even asked him to come over, but he refused,” said one source.
According to the rumour mill, Mohale has been seeing Vuyo behind SomGaga’s back for the past three months, but hearing of them getting all cosy at Mohale’s birthday pushed Somizi off the edge – he sent Vuyo a warning via text.
The message reads, in part: "If ever I find you at any point seen with my fiance, I will find you and f**k you up. I know where you study and stay. And I pray I never bump into you while I’m still fuming. You even had the nerve to come to the dinner, ass."
Vuyo is now said to be terrified of going out after receiving the message. A mole, who is close to the couple, said Mohale made the first move and requested a meeting with Vuyo under false pretences of going into business together.
“Mohale asked for Vuyo’s contacts and told him through an Instagram message that he wanted them to start a business together. Vuyo fell for it and I warned him to stay away from Somizi’s fiance. Trouble was written all over it,” said the source.
The source said all warning fell on deaf ears as the two later met secretly and Vuyo was “excited”. To keep things on the DL, the source claims Vuyo even lied and said he blocked Mohale.
“I knew Vuyo was lying when he said he had stopped communicating with Mohale because he was excited at first,” the source said.
Another source, close to Vuyo, said friends warned him that Mohale’s intentions might not be entirely pure.
“I told him Mohale’s intentions were to get very close to him. I warned him there was no business deal. Mohale even offered Vuyo a job, but still it fell on deaf ears as Vuyo seemed interested in Mohale too. He’s shaken and even scared of going out with us. When Vuyo briefed me about Mohale’s birthday and that he wanted me to loan him some cash to buy him a present, I refused,” revealed the source.
This week Vuyo confirmed the incident, saying: “Mohale came to me about starting a company. When things didn’t go according to plan, he offered me a job to do marketing for him in the same company. Mohale invited me to dinner and my fiance of three years dropped me off there. I was shocked to find out Somizi wasn’t there. After the dinner with his other friends, I started getting threatening messages from Somizi. That’s when I stopped communicating with Mohale, as I failed to understand why I was being targeted when his fiance was the one who came to me with a job offer and invited me to the dinner.”
On Friday, Mohale refused to comment and blocked our calls and WhatsApp messages. Somizi was also not available for comment this week.
Somizi and Mohale are expected to get married in December. Sunday Sun reported last year that Mohale had dumped his long-time boyfriend to date Somizi.
