Somizi Mhlongo has decided to further his education after dropping out at standard 7 (Grade 9). The media personality has registered for a part-time six-month course with the Villioti Fashion Institute. According to Sunday World, the star claimed he couldn’t further his education because he believed it would stop him from achieving his dreams.
The 50-year-old will be taking a fashion design course, as he believes it’s not too late for him. I have always believed in the value of education even though in my case the opportunities of work when still very young put me on a different path as far as formal school is concerned,” he said.
“But dropping out that early did not stop me from educating myself about anything that became part of my professional life. With this one [fashion course], I am ready. I am content with who I am and where I am in life. It is always about timing at the end of the day.
