According to reports, Somizi Mhlongo’s lawyers have sent letters to Bonang Matheba’s management team regarding the removal of Somizi’s name from her book.
The Idols SA judge’s spokesperson confirmed that the instructions they sent were on the basis that the information about Somizi in the book were untrue.
“On behalf of our client . . . we confirm sending a letter to Ms Bonang Matheba’s management [DNA] regarding the usage of our client’s name in her book. Our client doesn’t have a problem with his name being used in the book as long as the details and information relating to events are truthful. Our concern at this stage is that this is not the case,” he said.
Bonang has according to Sunday World confirmed that it wasn’t just Somgaga, but also DJ Euphonik who had written letters to her.
“For the better part of five years, I have taken a back seat whilst others narrated what they sold to be my story on social media and traditional media. Never have I called them to desist or account for what they viewed as their truth. Everyone has a right and responsibility to tell their story. Every account to life’s events is subject to individual interpretation. [This] is an account of my life, from my perspective and my truth,” said Bonang.
