In the minute long video captioned “Am I the only one who's terrified of Joburg CBD”, a terrified Somizi said: “Guys, I am in Johannesburg CBD, let me tell you about Johannesburg CDB, it scares the living sh** out of me. It’s as if I did not grow up around here.

“I grew up coming here with my parents. But yoh, I am terrified. So now I’ve stopped before I get to where I am going. I have to collect something urgently. I don’t have a PA with me right now.

“I’ve stopped so that I can put things in the boot, before they see me,” pointing the camera towards his Louis Vuitton shopping bags.

He continued: “I would feel safer walking Kruger National Park, meeting lions and tigers and snakes, than walking here. Never ever. It’s an extreme sport and you always turning and checking around you,“ said Somizi.

Somgaga’s friends, fans and followers shared his sentiments and commented on his post.
