Showmax will bring a tell-all interview ‘Mohale: On the Record’ between Mohale Motaung and Aldrin Sampear.
Mohale and his husband Somizi Mhlongo have been in the spotlight following their breakup.
But Somhale wasn’t the fairytale union it seemed. This became clear when the audio of an off-the-record interview with Mohale was leaked in August 2021, including allegations of how Somizi physically abused him.
Much has been said about the impact of these allegations on Somizi, who took time off from Idols and Metro FM as a result, but is now back on the cover of True Love this month and sharing his side of the story in Living the Dream With Somizi S5 on Showmax.
But much less has been said about how the alleged abuse, the leak, and the pending divorce has impacted Mohale.
“This sit-down is an opportunity to hear Mohale’s version of their union, and now, its cracks,” says Aldrin.
“A lot has been said about me, both true and untrue,” says Mohale. “I initially had no intentions to publicly speak of the events that have occurred, due to an agreement I had with the other parties involved. But when the agreement was dishonoured by the other party, it became paramount that I tell my truth as I know it. With all the misinformation in the public domain, it is my responsibility to correct any propaganda as I represent not only myself, but those that may have experienced a story similar to mine. I would also like people to truly get to know me for who I am, as opposed to who they have assumed me to be.”
The unfiltered special will premiere on 4 August 2022, first on Showmax.
Mohale: On the Record is being produced by Teddy Geldart’s Dopezuluboi Productions.
