Somizi & Mohale: End of the Road

“We must never forget the task God has given us,” Mohale texted Somizi on the morning of their traditional wedding. “Our wedding is going to be a story told in a way that will shake the entire continent and help people understand that loving a person of your same sex was never and will never be wrong.”

In 2020, when Somizi & Mohale: The Union set a then-record for the most first-day views on Showmax, it felt like a historic moment: a mainstreaming of gay marriage on a continent where it’s still largely illegal, in a country where two men marrying each other was only legalised in 2006.

Somizi & Mohale: End of the Road is an unauthorised documentary film that unpacks their relationship, its public breakdown, and what this meant to fans and the broader LGBTQIA+ community in South Africa.

Directed by Teddy Geldart from Dopezuluboi Productions (2021 SAFTA nominee Lebo M: Coming Home, S5 of Living The Dream With Somizi and Mohale: On the Record), Somizi & Mohale: End of the Road will draw on MultiChoice’s extensive archive footage of the couple, as well as new interviews with the likes of Letoya Makhene-Pulumo, Jackie Phamotse, Sol Phenduka, Langa Mavuso, Peace Maphalu, Prof. Cameron Modisane, Tshiamo Modisane, Mablerh, Lumko Johnson, Yaya Mavundla, Gabi Mbele and The Citizen’s Sandisiwe Mbhele – because there are more than two sides to every story.
