YOU CAN’T keep a good man down- or in this case Somizi Mhlongo.
The flamboyant Metro FM’s morning show co-presenter was unveiled as the face of women’s make up Black Opal, at the ceremony held at the upmarket Houghton on Tuesday evening.
“I guess they knew exactly what they wanted because I always have my own make-up artist wherever I go.
Many people have been commenting on social network about my make-up, including women.
“I am excited because this move will take both brands to another level. I will introduce them to my fans who did not know the cosmetic company and they will do the same for me. All in all, I am excited and cannot wait to see the posters and banners,” says SomGiGi, who will also co-present the SAMA awards along comedian Pops on June 2 at Sun City.
“We chose ‘SoMgaga’ because they we wanted to demonstrate that make-up can be worn by anyone, whether you were a guy or girl, “as long as you have fire”, says head of Marketing and PR at Black Opal, Busi Xaba.
“He’s confident and lively. He is comfortable with himself and also comfortable with wearing make-up,” Xaba said.
