Cape Town – South African media personality Mohale Motaung has said that his estranged husband Somizi Mhlongo was “controlling” and that he constantly reminded him during their marriage that he brought nothing but his “pretty face” to the table.
Mohale took to Instagram and shared a trailer of his tell-all interview Mohale: On the Record, a Showmax original.
In the trailer, Mohale tells radio and television broadcaster Aldrin Sampear that he was happy in his marriage with Somizi until he began to control him.
“I was really myself when I was with him and I could express myself in many ways… I was happy until certain things started to happen… Like the control and constantly being reminded that I bring nothing to the table except my pretty face,” said Mohale.

Somizi and Mohale married in a traditional ceremony in September 2019.
This was followed by an extravagant white wedding in 2020.
Their marriage, however, was short-lived, as the two are currently divorcing due to abuse allegations made by Mohale against Somizi.
Mohale, in a leaked recording, claimed that Somizi broke his ribs and nearly knocked out his two teeth in a jealously-fueled domestic dispute in their Joburg home in 2020.
The interview will premier on August 4, 2022.
