Cape Town – Reality TV star and Idols SA judge, Somizi Mhlongo, had Mzansi rolling on the floor with laughter when he took to social media to share his thoughts on the “forgotten culture” of “black dogs”.
He shared a whole 3 minutes and 14 seconds video, giving a hilarious lecture on the lost “black dogs” culture.
Throughout the video, he was barely able to hold his own laughter and broke into his own version of remixed songs to pass his message.
Somizi’s video was more directed to “Black parents of dogs”.

“I’m worried about the black dogs losing their culture and traditions. Black parents of dogs, stop talking to your dogs in English. Speak to your dog in your mother tongue. Dogs these days are Westernised and have lost their culture of going to the dustbins, barking outside at night on a chain with a long draad (wire); that is black dog culture.
“Dogs are sleeping in beds and told to ‘sit Booboo, sit.’ That’s Western culture,” he said, as he looked just about to burst out in laughter.
He made an example of a couple of celebrities who spoke to their dogs in English.
“Black dogs these days don’t know what it means to go ‘voetsek!’…. They don’t know their ancestors Rex, Spotty, Bobby, they only know Cobby, Brinette, no, no!”
He then broke out in his own remix version of a well-known struggle song to end off his laughter-filled lecture.
The video was viewed by over 250k people with loads of comments from celebrities, friends, and followers who found the video funny.
