‘Should be arrested’: Somizi’s clothing line faces backlash
Last year, South African media personality Somizi Mhlongo teased his kiddies clothing line Sompire kids. Heading online, he shared that he was launching a children’s brand to rival all other children’s brands. This year, he is finally making good on his promise butt unfortunately not everyone is excited about his latest venture.
Just one day before the launch of Sompire Kids, Somizi is facing backlash from peeps who don’t think that a convicted sexual offender should be supported.
SOMIZI’S SOMPIRE KIDS FACES CANCEL CULTURE A DAY BEFORE LAUNCH
“The pieces are coming together nicely…I can’t wait for you to see what we are cooking, .every kid deserves a Sompire kids gear in their wardrobe, and every parent shud afford it….that’s my goal… few months to go before the launch….@sompirre,” Somizi said in a clip last year promoting his Sompire Kids clothing brand.
While it took him quite a bit of time, the line is finally ready and set to be launched on Friday this week.
All week long, he has been counting down to the launch of his collection which is coming to South African shelves on Spring Day.
He even sat down with queen of radio Anele Mdoda to discuss this exciting venture.
“He is dropping a kiddies fashion range tomorrow!!!! We are talking all things Sompire Kids!!!! Tune in we are talking about it now and he says he wants to get something off his chest about Masked Singer SA #aneleandtheclubon947,” Anele wrote on X.
NOT ALL GOOD
While many have wished him well and congratulated him, others have slammed the fact that he hasn’t been “cancelled” by society for being a registered sex offender.
“Cancel him, he’s a convicted sexual offender.”
While @AshleighAmberl1 commented: “I love Somizi but I will not be supporting his kids range, he already has money and should let other black businesses dominate.”
