Unathi Nkayi and Somizi’s friendship ended years back and with no explanation whatsoever, Unathi revealed that she had unfriended him. Now, Somizi has gotten the opportunity to address this matter in the latest episode of his reality show Living The Dream with Somizi.
In the episode Somizi is talking with his best friend Vusi Nova about his ‘friendship’ with Unathi Nkayi. This was after Unathi’s comment on Instagram where she said Somizi is no longer her friend.
“What’s happening with a certain lady [Unathi]?” asked Vusi.
They then showed a screenshot of the comment by Unathi which said, “Who said they’re my friends?”
Unathi was speaking about R Kelly’s case where she asked her followers and friends to not listen to his music ever again. “To ALL my friends who think you’re going to CONTINUE playing R Kelly in my presence. TODAY IT STOPS. No more philosophical B*LL SHIT about you separating the genius from the MONSTER. It STOPS TODAY HMKAY…unless you LOVE being a trigger,” she warned.
Unathi clarified that Somizi is not her friend and had unfollowed him on social media. This was during the time he had been accused of abusing Mohale and got suspended on Idols and other business ventures.
Speaking about this in his reality show, Somizi said he was disappointed at Unathi’s actions and said he does not ever want to speak with her ever again. He does understand that they are in the same industry together but when they had to work together, he would do so but on a professional level.
“Honestly, I was shocked, I was disappointed but it is what it is. Sometimes when people show you who they are, you leave them,” he told Vusi. “Someone that I thought we were okay with went public.”
He then added, “The devil does not want to see me prosper. This day has been a day and a half,” he added.
“If I have to go work with her, in the same space with her. It’ not in my nature to say its either me or somebody else. I’m not going to take bread away from somebody who feeds her kids and family and stuff. I’m going to make sure my space and peace is protected, one. I never want to talk to her again, I never want to speak to her again.”
“I will be professional. Being professional doesn’t mean that when she says something I must agree with her… but I’m going to make it clear before I even start that this person must never even look at me,” he concluded.
Take a look at Somizi and Unathi during their happier times.
This is the second episode of Living The Dream and it follows an explosive season premier last week Wednesday. In the episode he addressed the Mohale incident. He touched on their sex life, “There is a part where he says I suggested threesome and stuff. My suggestion of not an open relationship, a versatile relationship were for the benefit of our marriage. Here I was dealing with someone who had issues with sex or I don’t know what you call it,” he says.
He then said they tried to make their sex life work but it did not help, “I still stayed, but I said to him let’s find other ways to either we go to a sex therapy, he didn’t want to go because he was in denial that the sex life wasn’t great.”
