“It’s not the phone’s problem. it’s the one that is using the phone. So, we aren’t blaming the phone, the phone doesn’t pick itself up,” said Somizi.

He admitted that he was sometimes guilty of not putting his phone down and said he also had a conversation with Mohale about him being on his phone “all the time”.

“It’s not even about me feeling neglected. I find it also to be too self-serving. If you’re not on Instagram, or Twitter, or Facebook, you’re taking pictures, you’re taking selfies. I desire, you, sometimes I wish to be touched like that phone,” he said.

The Metro FM DJ said both he and Mohale created a toxic environment once they didn’t discuss how cellphones came the way of their relationship.

He believes that conversation and setting boundaries are important.

“You got to sit down and set rules that are suitable for both of you. you would like to return up with the ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ that employment in your relationship,” said Somizi.

Many fans and celebrities joined within the heart-to-heart conversation, including media personality Andile Ncube.

Andile said the bedroom should be time for you and bae.

“Your room should be a sanctuary, once you’ve made your decision to travel to bed, be alone and still connect together with your person and yourself,” said Andile.
