Somizi adds a lesson from his life about not giving up to all the sermons preached this Easter weekend.

Somizi during an interview with Metro FM spoke about how he was once at his lowest and never gave up, he has lost it all and he has always opened up about his tale of coming out stronger.

The star recounted how he once auditioned for the South African Music Awards (Samas) ceremony, but spoiled his audition brief in the taxi on the way to the venue.

“I ended up doing the lines from my head and didn’t get it. But you know what? The next year I choreographed the Samas, and hosted it for three years after that.”

He continued to say that if he had decided to give up, those doors would not have opened for him.

He also opened up on how he was requested to handle choreographing the opening and closing ceremonies of the Fifa World Cup in 2010 but did not have a computer, which was normally used, to plan it out.

“I refused to give up. I did it with my own hands, the formation, and they came out. To date, we have had the best opening and closing ceremony. That, for me, says that anything is possible, nothing can stop you, if you have a vision. Nothing.”

Somizi took us back on the impact the event had on him in a post last year, saying creative organiser Lebo M gave him a shot that transformed his life.

“Something that a lot of people don’t know is that this day changed my life for the better. It resurrected my spirit, my career and my self-esteem. Before this day I was counted down and out by some, until this man (Lebo M) saw something I had completely buried.

“I had given up on ever choreographing anything when he called me and said, ‘Somizi I would like you to be the head choreographer for the Fifa World Cup opening and closing ceremony, and I know you can do it’.”
