Somizi who has been accused of stealing the concept of the show, was later accused by another of stealing a dance concept making it the second time he has been accused in a week from two different people.
There was a lot of uncertainty of the future as the media personality was judged and sentenced in the Twitter Court and found to have stolen the idea from Hastings Moeng who had receipts dating from 2014.
Somizi on the other hand has denied any wrong-doing and continues with the show. Fans of the chef are happy because of how the show has already won their hearts and having hosted some of Mzanzi faves celebs such as Pearl Thusi, DJ Zinhle, Jub Jub, Lerato Kganyago, Rami Chuene, Rebecca Malope, Zahara, Cassper Nyovest.
But last night was all about the handsome Thembinkosi Mthembu, who is popularly known as “Mabutho” on The River. He is a shy actor and also the father to a beautiful daughter. First introduced to the screens on the South African award-winning drama, The Republic.
His role in The River, has won the hearts of many to his side with his striking good looks and mucho character, whom he admits that he had to invent from scratch, in order to be the “Mabutho” that we have all come to love and hate on our tv’s.
It seems there is more love for him than hate, judging by the comments on the Twitter streets, Thembinkosi is more of a favourite more than his on-screen character.
