SOMIZI MHLONGO and his bae have been engaged for a while. But Mzansi has been on tenterhooks… about when these lovebirds will seal the deal!
According to insiders, the 45-year-old and his Ben 10 fiance, Mohale Motaung (24), will soon say, “I do”.
The highly-anticipated wedding will take place at four places, with the main ceremony staged at the Nelson Mandela Bridge in Braamfontein, Jozi, the insider said.
Insisted the informant: “The wedding will take place over the Easter weekend in April, and Somizi has already received the green light. He’s already secured the bridge venue, as he’s set to host many guests, so he needs as much space as he can possibly get. Also, he wants his wedding to be the talk of the town.”
Insiders claimed everything was already in place for the big day.
“But what Somgaga is now waiting for is approval from Yolisa Phahle, the head of general entertainment at MultiChoice.”
Another mole claimed Somgaga was still in the thick of things, as far as negotiations with MultiChoice.
“Because he’s selling the rights to broadcast his wedding on one of MultiChoice’s platforms, he sent a list of demands and is now awaiting approval for that list,” the source claimed.
“Even the invites aren’t yet out, as the list of people invited also has to be approved.”
The source said Somizi is going to make Mohale sign a prenuptial agreement, so as to protect his assets. The source said not all aspects of the wedding would be broadcast.
“But the wedding will be an extraganza. Somgaga is pulling out all the stops to outdo every celebrity wedding he’s been to.”
Mzansi Magic publicity manager, Bongiwe Potelwa-Meitseng, confirmed MulitiChoice had received the proposal from Somizi.
Said Bongiwe: “Yes, we’re in possession of the proposal from Somizi about his wedding. There’s still ample time, so we’re still finalising finer details at this stage and will communicate them in due course.”
City of Joburg (CoJ) spokesperson, Luyanda Mfeka, said he can’t comment on the matter as yet as he doesn’t have full details.
“The [Mandela] Bridge is not open for event purposes, unless those are approved by the CoJ,” said Luyanda.
Somizi refused to comment and hung up the phone on us. Mohale Motaung was not available for comment as his phone rang unanswered.
