Flag zaMade in South Africa

Get Mohale’s side of the story. Stream Mohale: On the Record on Showmax now.

Mohale Motaung and his husband Somizi Mhlongo became the poster couple for gay marriage in South Africa when their SAFTA-nominated 2020 wedding special, Somizi & Mohale: The Union, was labelled The Union of the Year and set a then-record for the most first-day views on Showmax at launch. Their relationship was also a central focus on Living the Dream With Somizi Season 4, which won the 2020 SAFTA for Best Structured or Docu-Reality Show. 

But Somhale wasn’t the fairytale union it seemed. This became clear when the audio of an off-the-record interview with Mohale was leaked in August 2021, including allegations of how Somizi physically abused him. 

This special will give Mohale a chance to tell his side of the story. Showmax Original Mohale: On the Record is now streaming, exclusively on Showmax.
