Plans quickly changed as the Coronavirus continued to spread, with Italy being one of the countries heavily affected by the pandemic.
"We have decided to cancel our wedding in Italy due to the coronavirus epidemic," Somizi wrote in an Instagram post on 6 March.
"We still have not spoken about it, because at the moment we don't know what the future holds in terms of the virus. No one is safe, including ourselves," he said.
"As much as we think we have the lowest number of infections [in South Africa], we can't even start to talk about it until we are sure where to go and what the status is. It's [the wedding] something that we're going to talk about probably in a month or so."
