DJ Shimza has shared that not voting in the upcoming local government elections is not an option for the youth. The music producer took to social media recently to offer the advice to his fans.
The Mzansi 2021 elections will take place across Mzansi on 1 November. The DJ told the youth that they should vote in order to put their favourite political leaders in power.
Taking to Twitter, Shimmy said the elections are not a joke. He warned the youth to vote regardless of their frustrations in order to put into power people who will deliver services to them and their communities. According to TshisaLIVE, the star said:
Phumzile Van Damme spills the tea on whether she will form her own political party: "It won't happen my skat"
"Funny thing is that young people in SA think by not voting Ba laya someone else. Yes we are all frustrated but not voting is not an option! Vote for who you feel will best serve you and your country. We need to vote. This is no joke."

Tweeps shared mixed thoughts to Shimza's post. Check out some of their comments below:
"But still, voting does not change the situation. The rich gets richer, the poor remains at the bottom. Those who are connected expand their connections. The youth must just uprise."
"Hay nawe marn, have you ever been this loud about the lack of service delivery, corruption allegations?"
"You're using your platform to mislead people. When government don't deliver you are no where to be found, because now it's election time you want to sound radical. La Bhora Shimmy."

Shimza ignites heated debate over Thukzin's 'Phuze Remix'
The people of Durban claimed that Thukzin has been a Gqom DJ and producer for years while some Amapiano fans argued that his new banger belongs to the yanos because it features Sir Trill and late Mpura - who both have dropped some dope yanos tunes.
According to TshisaLIVE, Shimza took to Twitter a few days ago and didn't mince his words when he claimed the hot tune belongs to the Afro-house genre. Shimza said: "We claiming this song as Afrohouse, let’s not argue!"
