Somizi’s estranged husband, Mohale Motaung has bagged the Male Personality of the Year international award.

The media personality announced on his social media that he’s brought home his first international Africa Choice Award.

“Y’all need to wake up because I was awarded with a male personality of the year INTERNATIONAL award in Nigeria last night.

“A special thank you to everyone that voted. SOUTH AFRICA, we brought this one home,” said the award winner.

The Africa Choice Awards were held in Nigeria over the weekend.

Motaung had previously asked his followers to vote for him and help him bring the award home.

Mohale was nominated for the Africa Choice Awards in the male personality of the year category, in August this year.

He was nominated alongside Mzansi actor and TV presenter, Oros Mampofu, Ghana’s Bismark Nii Odoi and Mawuli Gavor and Nigeria’s Kidd Waya and Ozoemena Chukwu.

The award is a great diversion for Mohale who often receives public backlash from Somizi’s fans.

The pair made headlines a few months ago after Mohale accused Somizi of abusing him.

He revealed the abuse in an interview with the producers of the reality show “Living the Dream with Somizi”.

Mohale said that Somizi had tried to kill him with a kitchen knife and struck him off the road with his car as he tried to flee. Somizi denied the allegations.

Last month Mohale took to the latest social media craze phrase, “na enjoyment”, which means to “temporarily abandon or postpone your financial responsibilities so you can prioritise having fun and living like all your money is dedicated to feeding your cravings”.

Mohale treated himself to cocktails and rose petal baths at the Palala Boutique Game Lodge & Spa and said he plans to enjoy his life and live it to the fullest.
