Buzzing! Somizi Mhlongo’s cookbook nominated for international award

Self-taught foodie and flamboyant Mzansi celeb Somizi Mhlongo is oozing pride. His lit cookbook Dinner at Somizi’s: I am not a chef is up for a notable international award.

Despite the current controversy surrounding Somizi after Jub Jub’s rape allegations reignited the fire surrounding his alleged abuse, he ain’t letting anything dull this sparkle!


His book Dinner at Somizi’s: I am not a chef has been nominated in the Celebrity Chef World category at the international Gourmand Awards 2022.

The cookbook sold out just a couple of hours after he launched it. The system nearly crashed as people rushed to pre-order before the launch. This nomination is well deserved.

TimesLIVE reported that the founder and president of the awards, Edouard Cointreau, said:

 “The awards are free and open to all to participate, big or small, trade publisher or institution or self-publishing. We have already seen an increase of 20% over last year. Even more significant is the increase is worldwide. The rise in Latin America and Africa is spectacular.” 


Seeing the great news, fans, friends and fellow celebrities took to the comment section to congratulate Somizi. Everyone is hoping he can bring this win home!
