JOHANNESBURG - Social media is divided over allegations of theft against Idols judge, Somizi Mhlongo.
Producer Hastings Moeng says he pitched a light-hearted television show similar to Dinner at Somizi’s.
The synopsis was sent to Somgaga in 2014, and the current producer in 2016.
Moeng says he didn't receive a reply from the producers.
However, a similar show is currently on television.
Somizi, the producers, as well as Multichoice, are yet to respond to the allegations.
On 28 July 2014, Hastings Moeng proposed #DinnerAtSomizis to Somizi & Themba. The description of the show is materially similar to the one now flighted (to the shock of Mr Moeng). See the 2014 email below and decide for yourself. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/QVcpJIAY8o— Eusebius McKaiser (@Eusebius) September 15, 2020
