Media personality, Somizi Mhlongo, Barleader TV, and Multichoice were served a summons for Dinner With Somizi, on Wednesday.

Dinner With Somizi is a cooking show that Somizi hosted on 1Magic. The show saw him cooking for Mzansi celebs at his home.

Hastings claimed that he sent the idea of the show to both Somizi and Legend in 2014 and 2016, via email.somizi

Former Radio 702 presenter, Eusebius McKaiser who broke the story back in September, shared the papers that they were served with on Wednesday, on Twitter.

According to Eusebius, Hastings wants compensation from Somizi and the two entities.

He wrote: “Somizi Mhlongo, Barleader TV & Multichoice have had summons served TODAY on behalf of Hastings Moeng seeking “reasonable compensation” plus “15% interest” as the alleged originator of the concept Dinner With Somizi. Moeng wants the court to declare his verbal contract…”

“… as valid & binding (supported by email evidence that exists); wants the court to declare the concept underpinning Somizi’s show as Moeng’s brainchild & wants the court to direct “reasonable compensation” to be given to Moeng plus rights to contract future seasons etc,” he continued.
