Somgaga landed in hot water during the SAMAs ceremony.

The 'Idols SA' judge jokingly said: “We are almost at the end of the show and there’s an amazing after party, free bar...where is Zahara ( audience roars in laughter). She’s probably at the bar already".

Somizi’s ‘Zahara is an alcoholic’ joke, however, earned him a lawsuit threat.

Zahara responded to him on her Instagram account. She wrote: “i only wish what i heard apon my return from Swaziland #BushfireFestival this past weekend about what Somizi said at the SAMAS is not true! because if he did i am Suing Somizi and the SAMAs for deformation of character i am tired of this,” (sic).
