Popular streaming platform Showmax has just released the trailer for Mohale: On the Record, the much-anticipated interview in which Mohale Motaung opens up about his marriage to Idols SA judge Somizi Mhlongo.
Aldrin Sampear, host of Unfiltered on SABC 3 and SAFM‘s drive time show Beyond The Headlines, conducts the interview in his usual probing and insightful way.

In the trailer, Mohale tells Aldrin that Somizi did bring him joy. “I was really myself when I was with him and I could express myself in many ways,” he says.
“I was happy until certain things started to happen… Like the control and constantly being reminded that I bring nothing to the table except my pretty face.”
The trailer also shows Mohale addressing his abuse allegations against Somizi. “I remember him saying that he needs to mess up my face,” Mohale says to Aldrin, before the trailer cuts to him talking about how, “I crawled down the stairs.” The trailer then ends with Aldrin asking Mohale why he didn’t open a case.
The unravelling of Somizi and Mohale’s marriage, dubbed “Somhale,” became public in August 2021 when an off-the-record interview with Mohale was leaked.
In the leaked audio, Mohale was heard making allegations of physical abuse against Somizi, who addressed the claims and shared his side of the breakup in Living The Dream With Somizi S5.
