L’vovo has given Zakes Bantwini his stamp of approval in his bid to become the Minister of Arts and Culture.
The KZN kwaito artist and vocal political commentator took to social media to share that he was happy with the music producer putting his name forward.
“Zakes Bantwini being minister of Arts & Culture sounds like a dope idea!”
His post was met with mixed reactions from Mzansi social media users.
“You mean Minister of Arts and Culture for Durban Finests' artists? We know you, come out, we will not judge you. Come out sweetheart.”
“And Big Zulu being the chief of SANDF.”
“Provincial allegiance. I like him as an artist though. Nathi Mthethwa failed dismally.”
"Imagine an entire minister with a hit track called 'Baby just shake your bum bum'. The bar is very low in Mzansi."

Briefly News had previously reported that Zakes Bantwini called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to make him the Minister of Arts and Culture.
Taking to social media, Zakes made the public request and explained that he could do the job better than the current minister, Nathi Mthethwa.
“I want to be Minister of Art & Culture @PresidencyZA. This pandemic has been extremely challenging for our industry and it's clear we have NO leadership that cares for creative economy of this nation. As creatives we deserve better and I want to change that for next generation.”
