Zuma has said some pretty funny things during his presidency.

But nothing beats the moment he gave us all a brain freeze when he read out 769 870  as “Seven-hundred and sixty-nine, eight-hundred and…seven-hundred and…listen properly, seven-hundred and sixty-nine thousand, eight-hundred and twenty *clears throat* and seventy members from one-hundred point two-million in 2012.”

My Fok, Marelize

Poor Marelize may have been the laughing stock of the internet last year, but at least she has the bragging rights to her own song.

Waiting for a signal

With all the songs Malema has inspired, he should be getting royalties!

'Pay back the money' is a hot track, which emanated from Malema's confrontation of then president Jacob Zuma at a SONA in 2014.

But 'Waiting for a signal' - the moment he asked the late Winnie Mandela for a sign (confused with signal) at her funeral is the ultimate club banger...

Mmusi Maimaine

The former DA head may not have contributed in any way to this song by The Kiffness, but you can't deny it's catchy beat.

Skrrr skrr!
