LTDWSomizi sarafina where it all began

It is by far one the greatest South African musicals and productions ever made - Sarafina. A story centering the role played by students in the fight against the Apartheid regime. It is also where Somizi's career as an actor, dancer and public figure began.Β 

Somizi is something of enigma while being pervasive. He is on your tv screens as a dancer, a singer, and #IdolsSA judge, an MC of some of the country's biggest events among other great accolades. It is sometimes difficult to see where larger than life people like SOmizi began the path to building and living their dreams.Β
