- Tito Mboweni has been sworn in as Mzansi’s new finance minister following Nhlanhla Nene’s sacking
- He has become popular on social media thanks to Cassper Nyovest’s song ‘Tito Mboweni’
- The new minister is an avid user of Twitter, however he has slammed tweeps in the past
Mzansi has got itself a new finance minister, but tweeps are little disappointed that President Cyril Ramaphosa didn’t start off Tito Mboweni’s introduction with a little ‘Sha Sha’, so they did it for him.
Cassper Nyovest recorded a song called ‘Tito Mboweni’ a little while ago and now the prophecy has been fulfilled as Mboweni was sworn into Parliament earlier this week.
Briefly.co.za has gathered that former police chief, Fikile Mbalula has been in charge of the welcoming committee on Twitter, reminding Mzansi that there are two little words that need to be said.
Mbalula summoned Cassper to do the honours and officially welcome Mboweni into his new role with a ‘Sha Sha’.
Mufasa’s song was released last year and was all about making money and becoming successful, now Mboweni is making Cassper proud.
ENCA reports that the new finance minister has become fairly popular amongst the younger generations as they know about him because of the song, but now they will know him for a different reason.
TimesLIVE reports that the finance minister has always been a favourite amongst tweeps thanks to his unusual selfies, but now they have even more reasons to love him.
In an interview with PowerFM earlier this year, Mboweni slammed tweeps for throwing shade at one another, but the Twitter streets have decided to look past that now that they have something new to talk about.
The music video for Cassper's track has become such a hit that it even featured on CNN during a report about the new minister.
