Published 3 months ago by

Season 5 of Living the Dream With Somizi (LTDWS) is now streaming first on Showmax, with new episodes every Wednesday until 6 July 2022.

The season starts in the second half of 2021, with Somgaga’s career at a crossroads: he is taking time off from Idols and Metro FM, and has replaced his management team with himself.

“If I thought iCovid was the tsunami, I thought wrong,” he says early in the episode, later admitting to Vusi that, after the allegations, “I lost nearly everything.”

But as Season 5 launches in May 2022, Somizi is in a very different place: on the cover of next month’s True Love, hosting hit shows on 1Magic (Downtime With Somizi) and Moja Love (Lovey Dovey), and returning to Idols for Season 18.

Season 5 charts that turnaround, while also showing Somizi mourning his mother, expanding the Sompirre, and exploring his calling. He’s also working on his relationships with his daughter Bahumi and his baby-momma, Palesa Madisakwane, who is still recovering from her horrific, near-fatal car crash in 2019. As usual for LTDWS, it’s going to be a star-studded season: look out for appearances from the likes of Cassper Nyovest, Kelly Khumalo, Pearl Thusi and 2022 DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice nominees Lerato Kganyago and Shauwn Mkhize.

“This season I’m living my life to the fullest, and showing the silver lining in every dark cloud. I’ve become more comfortable sharing my life and story with everyone; it’s now second nature. It doesn’t feel like I have to do something; everything just happens naturally.”

– Somizi

Somizi held an intimate, pajama-themed Episode 1 viewing party last night at Langhams in Fourways, Johannesburg, attended by his co-stars, close friends, family and the production team.

Reflecting on what he’s learnt over five seasons of Living The Dream With Somizi, Somgaga says:

“My learning has been to be in the moment; life has become shorter than it was before. And to forgive quickly; never forget – you are allowed to cut off anything where love is no longer served on the table. And lastly, being a very kind human being, that for me is a big learning.”
