Idols judge and entertainer Somizi Mhlongo says that at one point in his life he was kept a secret by the man he dated. The star opened up about this time in his life on Mapaseka Mokwele's show on KAYA FM.
"He [Somizi's ex] decided to hide our relationship from them [his parents]. But because I was so into him, I said 'ag maybe after two years he will change'. But he never did. I became a secret for five and a half years, up until I asked him, 'so when are you going to [introduce] me. I've never been to your place, I've never met your parents? But my family knows you," he said on the show.
Even though Somizi didn't say who the ex was he says he got tired of the set up but he wasn't going to come out for the guy, as it is a personal thing to do.
"I'm a believer and an advocate of saying to people, don't be forced by people to come out. Come out when you are ready. You need to be ready and it applies in anything whether its HIV status or whatever," Somizi explained.
