Video: Somizi struggles with ‘perseverance’

South African media personality, reality TV star, and Idols SA judge, Somizi Mhlongo just shared another fun video online – this time, he shows off his surprisingly poor spelling skills.

Somizi may have all the money, all the glam, and all of the personality but one thing he clearly doesn’t have is spelling skills.

The media personality just left his supporters with a bellyaching laugh after he showed them just how putrid his spelling is.

Taking to his Instagram page on 16 May earlier this week, Somgaga shared a short video while promoting his Sompire kid’s clothing line.

In the clip, he writes down a few motivational words unfortunately he struggles to spell the words dream and perseverance – something that he couldn’t care less about.

He captioned the clip:

The pieces are coming together nicely…I can’t wait for you to see what we are cooking, .every kid deserves a Sompire kids gear in their wardrobe, and every parent shud afford it….that’s my goal… few months to go before the launch…[email protected]
