Somizi thanks Coronavirus that helped bring out all those talents buried in the youth
A self-taught artist has caught the guts of media personality Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung who can not help but rave about her craft.
In what Somizi thought was getting to be “business as usual” at the Bathu offices clothed to be a mind-blowing experience for the Idols SA judge as he was taken all of sudden and gifted with a gorgeous string portrait of his book, Dinner At Somizi’s.
Some took to Instagram to share a video of the amazing string art that had the letter S and his cookbook cover page thereon.
“So, this beautiful young talented South African, look what she did … she is self-taught and she or he started practicing during Covid-19.”
Somizi then proceeded to point out a number of the artist’s artwork she did which were placed around the office.
“She made this portrait using strings, like strings. So, I’m here at the meeting with Theo at Bathu, and that I get this beautiful surprise.
“As guys, God is gorgeous and God exists. Like, this is often God’s given talent. check out this! Just strings, Iowa, ah a. What a talent!” Somizi, amazed at the artist’s skills, enthused.
Some expressed how it had been important for South Africans to support young budding artists. “People, let’s support one another, let’s support local … definitely there’s talent in SA. Wow!”
In March last year, in his bid to support local, Somizi urged fans to shop from street vendors before lockdown got implemented for the primary time in SA.
While President Cyril Ramaphosa initially had plans to possess the lockdown last for 21 days, Somizi at the time urged those stocking up to urge their fresh fruit and veggies from street vendors while they might.
This was after the president’s announcement that the national lockdown was getting to see street vendors moved from their selling points while grocery stores and essential services would still operate.
In a video he posted on Instagram, Somizi encouraged his followers to support the vendors in order that they have an income to sustain them during the lockdown.
“I am doing my part and inspiring people to try to do their part. attend the vendors first and support them. Buy what you’ll, what you would like, but also what you’ll get at the other supermarket. The supermarkets are getting to survive, they (vendors) won’t survive the 21 days,” Somizi said within the video.
He listed a number of the products the vendors sell and said: “Go support local, go support street vendors. it’s vital .”
