The power of social media has once again came through for the upcoming talents! While Somizi was busy browsing through his feeds on Twitter, a portrait of his mother and father done by a user captured his heart.
Without any doubt, judging from the painting itself, one can easily tell that South Africa is talented,
Somizi was so touched by the painting, he decided to track down the artist who made it and gave him a deal we personally wouldn’t refuse!
The Idols judge bumped into the painting of his mother on Twitter and he immediately tasked the artist to actually make a portrait of his parent on his denim jacket instead.
The television personality indicated that he had planned to wear the jacket at his mother’s funeral but it did not materialise of time.
Mhlongo took it to Instagram to give a vote of thanks to the young man and said that he also paid him for his wonderful job.
It was not immediately clear how much Somizi paid the Capetown based artist. Mary Twala succumbed to diabetes in Johannesburg at the age of 80 and was laid to rest in Soweto.
