Looks like Mzansi can’t get enough of snooping on Somizi’s life, literally.
His reality show, Living The Dream With Somizi, is the country’s most watched celebrity reality show at the moment.
Kgopolo Phil Mphela, an entertainment commentator and media consultant, released the viewership figures on Twitter on Tuesday.
According to him, LTDW Somizi rakes in an average viewership of 560,000 per show.
Close on Somizi’s heels is Zodwa Wabantu, whose show Zodwa Uncensored has an average viewership of 516,000.
Papa Penny Ahee comes in third with an impressive average of 470,000 viewers per show.
Somizi was quick to celebrate his show’s top dog status on Instagram. He thanked his fans for making it all possible.
We are number 1. Thank u [South Africa] let’s keep it right there. Thanks @mzansimagic @kingolwee and my team. The cast. @ttmbha @mohale_77 @palesamad.Somizi
Fans of Being Bonang were naturally disappointed that it didn’t feature in the top three, but some offered a plausible explanation.
@NjozolaAsie explained, “Problem is Being Bonang is on 1Magic and minority have premium and access to watch it I think. Everyone has compact.”
