The notion of self-care has in recent years become topical as more and more people realise the importance and the benefits of caring for and loving themselves.
This week, reality TV star and businessman Somizi Mhlongo took to his Instagram page to showcase his love language to himself.
In a short video clip shared on social media, the Idols SA judge can be heard telling his followers that his new boyfriend surprised him with multiple bouquets spread all over the kitchen counter.
“I just got home…oh he loves me, oh my gosh! Oh baby, thank you so much, I really appreciate this,” said Mhlongo.
Then he turned the camera to his face and said: “I bought these flowers for myself…it’s called self-love.”
While some wondered if the “rich boyfriend” forgave Mhlongo following rumours that he is set to remarry in spring, others commended Mhlongo for practising self-care.
Lungelo Mnculwane commented, “Lol mina I wondered if is it the one without the money😂or the one who has moola.”
Ntokozo Melu wrote: “That’s very true SomSom, ‘self-love’ ….love yourself before you expect love from outside.”
Khaya Dladla added: “😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 love this for you, my friend.”
This comes after Mhlongo rubbished claims that he has paid lobola for his new boyfriend.
City Press reported that Mhlongo, who recently split from his actor and model husband Mohale Motaung, had allegedly paid R1.5 million lobola for his rumoured boyfriend Pholoso Mohlala.
