We all know Somizi as the bubbly TV personality with a very sharp eye for fashion and designer clothes… but little did we know that he is more of a philanthropist than a celebrity.
Speaking of which, Somizi has taken to social media to announce that he has decided to give-away a portion of his wardrobe with regards to his Mandela Day campaign.
What we actually mean is that, Somizi will donate 30 designer suits that he's worn on prestigious events to underprivileged matric boys.
"Mandela day is around the corner. Last year I started a ‘raise a matric dance dress campaign.’ My aim was to raise 67 dresses. Ended up getting 300 dresses for girls around the country. This year is like to grow the campaign by also raising 67 suits for matric boys. I'll start with myself. I'm giving away 30 of my suits I've won on previous events. I'll give to boys size 28 to 32," said Somizi.
Somgaga also added that he’s challenging his friends in this initiative including Jimmy Tau, Andile Ncube, Tbo Touch, DJ Tira, Trevor Noah and others to join his campaign by donating a suit.
"I'm challenging my friends to bring theirs. I'm also challenging everyone to go to their neighboring high schools and donate their dresses and suits. My friends u know where to find me and I know u have suits."
The Idols SA judge added that changing the world does not necessarily have to be rocket science, it can be as simple as "improve this world one person at a time."
We couldn’t agree any less Somz… the world needs more of people like you… #compliments at hand.
