In most cases, when an author is promoting their new book, the publisher/distributor would host a few readers for short speeches and a book signing by the author.
In a recent social media post, Mhlongo, who recently released his most anticipated cookbook, Dinner at Somizi’s – I am not a chef’, shared a photograph of Zuma showing his support.
“The book displays a message, dated and signed by Zuma, and it read:” To my brother Somizi.
The post received mixed messages as tweeps attempt to comprehend why Zuma, who is not the author, is signing the book instead of Mhlongo.
Isn’t the Author supposed to be the one to sign their own book?
After years of teasing his fans with the release of his own a cookbook, Mhlongo finally released his “Self-published” culinary book, and judging by the social media reactions, it seems the book is already a hit with many South Africa.
True to his lavish lifestyle Mhlongo hosted a star-studded book launch in Joburg, just a few weeks ago.
“Earlier in the year, Mhlongo launched his first cooking show Dinner at Somizi’s” on 1Magic.
Mhlongo later rubbished the allegations, insisting that he never stole the show concept from anyone.
