Somizi’s ‘child mama’ on Bahumi’s surname

Media persona Somizi Mhlongo’s “baby mama” Palesa Madisakwane, shared her ideas on why their daughter Bahumi can’t change her surname to Mhlongo simply but – on the newest episode of Living the Dream with Somizi which launched on Showmax on Wednesday 11 May.


The second episode of Living the Dream with Somizi centered much less on his estranged husband Mohale Motaung. The episode divided into him “cancelling” his friendship with Unathi and his daughter eager to take on his surname.

Somizi has a 26-year-old daughter with actress Palesa Madisakwane, named Bahumi. Bahumi sat down together with her mother for a “semi” severe speak. She defined that it was not a “super hectic” speak however her mother stated it was all good so long as she is just not pregnant or doesn’t have a boyfriend. 

Bahumi defined that she needs to vary her surname from Madisakwane to Somizi’s surname – Mhlongo. Palesa defined that the principle purpose Bahumi wasn’t given the Mhlongo surname was that issues weren’t accomplished appropriately, culturally.

“If she wants to change her surname to Mhlongo, she is an Mhlongo at the end of the day. There is nothing I can do, but I am just worried (about) what my dad will say. My father always says that there are steps that need to be taken,” stated Palesa.

“It’s not about money, it’s just about certain things to be corrected so that we can give her our blessings,” she continued.

Palesa went on to elucidate that she needs Bahumi to vary her surname however there are specific cultural facets that can not be prevented.

Palesa went on to say that she was upset as a result of this was a dialog Somizi ought to have been main.

“I am upset because Somizi is the one who should be leading this and making sure it happens but he’s not prioritising the issue,” stated Palesa.

“They must not claim you, they do not know you. What gives them the right to claim you?” she went on to ask.

“She is not a Mhlongo. Bahumi is a Madisakwane. Her uncles are like fathers to her,” she added.
