Every time they posted pictures together, deep inside we wished we were right there posing next to them, because… well… their friendship just looked so perfect – that is until one December when everything came tumbling down.
With no explanation, no warning, and with great shock, we all came to learn that Bonang and Somizi’s friendship was no more.
It became even more evident when Somizi was interviewing Pearl Thusi during a Kaya FM special edition in December 2015.
For months, Somizi did not speak about why he and Bonang stopped being friends, but on Wednesday night’s episode of his reality show, Living The Dream with Somizi, he opened up about what had transpired.
In the episode, Somizi was speaking about his red carpet experience at the SAFTAs where he happened to bump into Bonang. Somizi explained that it was the first time he had seen Bonang after four months of no communication.
“At this stage I hadn’t seen Bonang for like four months, we’d been friends for over five years and in my head, we were BFFs.
“And then one morning I wake up and she’s not talking to me and I then hear from people that she unfollowed me on Twitter and on Instagram, hawu. The last time I had spoken to this person she was in Mauritius the night before telling me how much she misses me and then the next thing dololo.”
“People come in your life and leave for a reason,” Somizi added.
