Somizi Mhlongo has come up to support black owned businesses.

This is because it is heartwarming to see black people entering the competitive market.

When it is a black woman owned business, it is even more applaudable because of the many obstacles which seek to restrict women from entering male dominated spaces.

This is the case with Nthabeleng Likotsi, who is the first woman to own a mutual bank in South Africa, called Young Women Business Network (YWBN).


Within 72 hours of trading in the market, the bank managed to sell a million shares.

One of the people who bought shares was media personality Somizi Mhlongo.

He has always made it clear that he will always support black people and their businesses, and he is sticking to his word.

Somizi has also proven that he is a philanthropist at heart.

The media personality always helps those who seek help on his timeline.

Just recently, he promised to help school children from Ngqiniko Elementary School in Eastern Cape.
