SOMIZI MHLONGO RETURNS TO SCHOOL

Media personality Somizi Mhlongo is returning to school. Sunday World reports that the media personality dropped out of school in grade nine but wants to futher his education now.

The 50-year-old dropped out of school because he felt like it would hinder him from chasing his dreams. He has now signed up for a fashion design course and expressed that it is never too late to go back to school.

“I have always believed in the value of education even though in my case the opportunities of work when still very young put me on a different path as far as formal school is concerned. But dropping out that early did not stop me from educating myself about anything that became part of my professional life,” he said to the publication.

The media personality is a second-generation entertainment star. He is the son of iconic actress Mary Twala and actor Ndaba Mhlongo. The media personality made his acting debut at the tender age of 15 in the 1987 film Scavengers.

Somizi shot to fame in 1992 with the musical drama Sarafina!
