House Music mogul Zakes Bantwini has admitted that even he has made some bad career choices over the years - particularly with reference to the video for his hit track Bum Bum. 

Released in 2010 the video features the former male ballerina dressed in drag and teaching a class of women aerobics.

"Oh! Please I can't even watch!" said the Durban born performer when the video was played for him during the taping of an episode of the celebrity chat show Screentime With Nicky Greenwall.

"I hate this video!" he exclaimed, later adding, "I think it killed my song. I think when this video aired the song just died. Before that people were loving the song. Moral of the story - artists who are watching this interview - pay attention to you music videos. If you don't have an idea or you don't have budget - just don't."

The full interview is expected to air tonight (Wednesday, 26 November) at 9:35pm on e.tv with repeats on eNCA. The show also features former model and television presenter Claire Mawisa who discusses everything from her dreadlocks to her thoughts on tabloid media.
