Former president Jacob Zuma celebrated his 77th birthday on Friday and to make his day extra special, entertainer Somizi Mhlongo wished him a happy birthday in his usual hilariously over-the-top way.
In a video posted by Zuma’s wife, Tobeka Madiba Zuma, Somizi sings to Msholozi while seated next to him on a plane. The Idols judge then jokingly says, “Happy 21st” as Zuma giggles.
In the video’s caption the former first lady thanks Somizi and Babes Wodumo (who made a cameo in the video) for their birthday wishes.
Posting the same video, Somgaga revealed he decided to entertain the former president as their flight had been delayed.
“Flight delayed. I shall entertain the birthday dad,” he wrote.
Take a look at Somizi’s birthday song below.
