Even when we sat on the judging table and I was professional, he was choosing sides. It was fine for him to go on boy’s trips with Thomas, but we said you don’t cross this line now. He’d come back and speak smack about me on the same reality show, so now you’re showing you’re choosing sides.”
Unathi clarified that she doesn’t hate Somizi, but they don’t have a relationship anymore because he chose sides.
Unathi also spoke about her relationship with her ex-husband, Thomas Msengana. She revealed that they get along very well and have a great friendship.

Unathi was candid about her dating life and revealed that she is not ready to date anyone at the moment.
