Somizi has left his followers laughing their butts off after sharing a clip of himself MC’ing in Afrikaans. In the clip, he can be seen on stage ushering singer Kurt Darren onto the stage. While he was obviously struggling with the language, he joked that he will now be asking for more money to host events.
Epic fail: Somizi shows off his questionable Afrikaans skills
Despite the fact many South Africans were taught Afrikaans in school, not everyone finds it easy to speak. Many locals often struggle to express themselves in the language and Somizi is definitely one of them.
Instead of being embarrassed, the suspended Idols SA judge headed too Instagram to show off the bit of Afrikaans that he is able to speak.
In a clip on the social media app, Somizi can be seen MC’ing at a gig where he was put in charge of introducing Afrikaans singer Kurt Darren.
In what one can consider very bad Afrikaans, Somizi calls Kurt to the stage. Much to the delight of a highly amused crowd who could not help at laugh at how Somizi was struggling.
Here’s what the fans think
While many simply laughed out loud at the clip, others complimented Somizi on his ability to truly entertain people. Here are some of their comments about his poor Afrikaans:
“😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 I am so done 😂😂😂😂 Let me go to sleep, I think this wine went over my head 😂😂 I’ll check this video again tomorrow.”
“You’ve got something that nobody will take away from you.”
“It’s the phaphapha part for me.”
