Local TV personality Somizi Mhlongo shined bright like a diamond on the 2017 MTV red carpet.

The Idols SA judge was covering the MTV VMAs red carpet for MTV Base Africa and shared his experience on Instagram.


Somizi wore a white jumpsuit by local designer Anita Ferreira and debuted a new hair style thanks to Brands Hair Couture.

This has been a stellar year for the local star with him staring in his own reality show (Living The Dream WIth Somizi), releasing his own book (Dominoes: Unbreakable Spirit) and hosting the 2017 SAMAs.

Ready steady go. Time for the red carpet. #mtvvma2017
