Media personality Somizi Mhlongo has praised those who do not drink alcohol and says that staying away from it is hard.

Somizi, who is known for having a penchant for champagne, said that he decided to take part in Ocsober.

Ocsober is a month during which South Africans are asked to quit drinking as part of a campaign to raise awareness about alcohol abuse.

The idea is simple – stay sober in October and donate what you would have spent on booze to charity.

Taking to Instagram, Somizi said that he was on day nine and struggling.

“So I am on day nine of Ocsober. I decided to go sober for the month of October, wish me luck, it is hard. Yesterday I went out, no it’s hard. I had one Redbull, I had Coke, I had passionfruit, wow, the sugar,” he said.

He praised people who didn’t drink.

“People who don’t drink are capable of a lot but anyway wish me luck.”

Last month, Somizi returned to his first love – dance.

The star, who became a household name as a celebrated choreographer, has returned to it after taking a two-year break.

The star took to social media recently to announce his return. In a video he posted on Instagram, Somizi can be seen leading a group of dancers in a dance studio.

"Day one of dance rehearsals after two years of taking a break from choreographing. It's good to be back," he wrote.

In a video he posted last week, he is seen choreographing a group of dancers to Beyoncé’s hit single “Run the World (Girls)”.
