Johannesburg - Everyone's planning to do their bit for Mandela Day next week.

Some celebs will be handing out sandwiches and blankets, while others  like Proverb and Kaya FM's Mo-G, will be climbing Kilimanjaro. Somizi has also got a plan up his sleeve. He wants to give dresses to girls.

The Idols judge announced this week that he has an ambitious project for Mandela Day: to provide 67 Matric dance dresses to 67 young girls.

"Fam, it's Mandela Day, 18 July, I want to give away 67 matric dance dresses to girls who really need them," he says in a video uploaded to his social media account recently.

Please help me reach my target. Email
