One thing you can’t fault Somizi Mhlongo Motaung on is his choice of outfits. For him, it’s either go big or go home.

This Easter weekend, the ’Idols SA’ judge didn’t disappoint.

Taking to social media, he shared a series of images of himself dressed in a camo-inspired outfit by local fashion designer Zamaswazi Nkosi. But one thing that was most noticeable was his clean shaven head.

Captioning the IG post “Tenacity is in my blood”, the entrepreneur and choreographer dressed like he was ready to go to war. Maybe a subtle snub at his haters?

On Twitter, SomGaga posted another series of playful pics with some of his fans asking if he’s planning on joining the army.

Others even eluded to the status of his relationship with husband Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo.

But it was the state of Somizi’s shoes that got many talking, reason being that he’s always dressed in the best of everything, including shoes.

In November last year, tweeps noticed his R15K Loubishark sneakers which he showed off during an ’Idols’ live show.

He also launched a selection of sneakers in collaboration with Bathu.

Launched at the Bathu warehouse in Centurion in February, the new BathuxSomizi sneaker comes in four different mineral range; the platinum, gold, diamond and ruby.

During the official launch, Theo Baloyi, founder of the Bathu brand, said: “Somizi and I have been working on this concept for about two years now. We did so many designs, and the timing wasn’t right at the time.

“Somizi wanted something that embodies and accommodate the minerals and the richness of Africa. And we are known to be rich in minerals and gold, and Somizi was like ‘how about we take the richness of Africa and incorporate it into shoes?”
