Palesa Madisakwane, Somizi’s ‘baby mom,’ claims she only discovered out he was gay after she became pregnant with their kid.

Somizi’s mother, legendary actress Mary Twala, and his sister, according to the actress, encouraged her to leave the kid with them and move on with her life. They did it because they recognized Somizi was different from the other lads.

“When I went to speak to Somizi’s mother and his sister, I remember Somizi’s mother saying ‘my child, you can see how Somizi is. He isn’t like other boys. Give us the child and go on with your life,” she said.

“I had also just found out that he was gay and I had fallen pregnant with his child, you know? It was a confusing time of my life to understand what being gay meant. I think in my little girl’s mind, I thought I had a boyfriend,” she continued.

“I could brag about my boyfriend being a part of Sarafine! Whenever he came to see me,” she added.

The Idols SA judge, according to Palesa, did not “act gay or seem flamboyant.” Palesa and the media celebrity have a 26-year-old daughter named Bahumi.

When Somizi performs interviews and claims that she knew he was gay, Palesa believes it is insulting. This was labeled as “false” by her.

“What hurts me the most is that when he does his interviews or when  read somewhere… he would often say that I knew he is gay and that is false. When he says I knew that he was gay, how did I know such? Where would I have learnt about the homosexuality through him,” Palesa went on to say.

What Somizi was telling people

The media personality told rapper Cassper Nyovest that Palesa knew he was gay and she “tested him” in an episode of The Braai Show With Cassper Nyovest in November 2021. This was when the media personality revealed that he was not gay, but pansexual.

Pansexual is defined as someone who is not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.

“Even the baby mama knows that when she told me she liked me, I told her I was gay. She said I was lying and she tested me. I decided to go for it and that’s how it happened,” he said.
