South African kwaito group Big Nuz snubbed an event advert claiming they are to perform at an upcoming Inkatha Freedom party (IFP) rally at Ulundi stadium.
The award winning group was advertised in a newspaper article as the major act at the IFP’s Sizonqoba which will take place in KwaZulu-Natal this coming weekend.
However, the group denied ever accepting such gig from the party. Big Nuz also posted a picture of the advert on social media to notify fans that it is fake and not in their name.
Most political parties are wrapping up their election campaigns this weekend in a grand style to ensure success at the polls. This is in the wake of the impending local government elections expected to hold next week.
Therefore, artists are in hot demand as several of these political parties are after them for publicity. Most of the artists have been hired to perform at campaign rallies in order to attract a huge audience to the events.
This leaves us wondering whether an artist’s performance at these political rallies actually means victory for the party.
Subsequently, a lot of artists have aired their views about performing for parties especially the ones they do not necessarily support, but hip-hop star AKA seemed to outshine the others with the manner in which he tackled the issue.
Rapper AKA took to Twitter few months ago and shared his political views with his followers in a rather lengthy tweet.
In his tweet, he revealed that he has been approached to perform for the DA on several occasions, but always turned them down. And for the fighters (EFF), he said he will never again perform for them no matter how attractive the money is.
He however confirmed “I’ve even performed at 2 EFF parties.”
Eventually, the rapper pledged his support for the ANC which he said holds a bright future for the country.
