This weekend entertainer and Idols judge Somzi Mhlongo announced on his Instagram that he had been informed that his biography Dominoes: Unbreakable Spirit was the highest selling biography ever locally. It has since emerged that this isn't the case. Somizi's book is doing really great but it isn't the number one best selling biography.
"We never discuss sales with the media or even the authors so we did not notify him that his book was the highest-selling autobiography. His book did extremely well but the highest-selling autobiography was Nelson Mandela's Long Walk to Freedom and it (Somizi's book) was below the numbers needed to break that record," explained Exclusive Book's General Manager Ben Williams to TshisaLive.
Ben did explain that the book is really doing well though and continues to be one of the top sellers.
