The couple took to their social media platforms over the Easter weekend to announce that they have launched their own organisation "Somhale Foundation," with the sole purpose of "changing the world, one person at a time."

In a video clip posted on the organisation's Instagram accounts, the couple announced: "We came up with this amazing idea where we decided to start a foundation, and we call it the Somhale Foundation, and our aim is to make this world a better place one person at a time."

"We're giving away R500 worth of vouchers that we bought at Makro so that they can buy themselves groceries, and we've chosen 400 families," said Somizi.
