Somizi has come out to admit that he regrets doing Whose Show Is It Anyway last year, which wasn’t well received by fans and was even labelled a ‘flop’ on social media.
Somizi, Khanyi Mbau and Ntombi Ngcobo replaced MoFlava on the Metro FM breakfast show, after he was moved to the afternoon slot when Tbo Touch resigned.
But the trio didn’t get the reaction from listeners as expected and topped the Twitter trends list every day for all the wrong reasons.
During an interview on Metro FM’s The Great Escape, Somizi said he joined the show purely as a “business deal”.
“Doing that radio show last year was something I regret. It was not a mistake, I did it because it was a business decision. I was asked to host the SAMAs last year and there were politics that I was on the ‘other side’ and they wanted to use SABC talent,” he said.
Somizi added that hosting the SAMAs was a dream for him and he could not let the opportunity go by, so he decided to accept the Metro FM gig
“But after that [the SAMAs] it was the biggest regret of my career. I always see the light in everything. I used it as a learning opportunity. It was preparing me for bigger things: the breakfast show,” he added.
Somizi is now the co-host of the Fresh Breakfast show with DJ Fresh.
