Media personality Somizi Mhlongo said that although it is hard, he is attempting “ocsober”, via a video posted to Instagram on Saturday 9 October.

SOMIZI IS ATTEMPTING OCSOBER

Just like dry January, Ocsober encourages people to abstain from alcohol for a month. Sober October began in 2014 as a fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support — a UK based charity that provides support for people living with the disease. 

Somizi Mhlongo revealed that although it is hard, he is attempting Ocsober, via an Instagram story. He said that his sugar intake has been a lot more since his attempt at alcohol abstinence.

“So I am on day nine of Ocsober. I decided to go sober for the month of October, wish me luck, it is hard. Yesterday I went out, no it’s hard. I had one Red Bull, I had Coke, I had passionfruit, wow, the sugar,” he said in a video.

“People who don’t drink are capable of a lot but anyway wish me luck,” he continued.

SOMIZI SHOWS LOVE TO ‘VOLUPTUOUS’ WOMEN

Somizi expressed that he had two thoughts on his mind when making the video. One was his Ocsober update, while the second was how much he adored “voluptuous” women. He encouraged these ladies to continue loving themselves and loving their bodies because he was loving it too!

“I saw a lot of beautiful women dressed comfortably in all shapes and sizes. But what took my eyes and my attention were big women, voluptuous women owning it, looking so sexy, and I see it’s now becoming a trend; ladies don’t stop. Own it, the body happens once, forget about everything else,” said Somizi.

“I see them on Tik Tok with all the criticism and everything, they are owning it. Please, you might not even do it for yourselves, but you’re doing it for the kids who are bullied at school, because of their weight. I am loving it,” he continued.
