The deal followed Durban being crowned the City of Literature two months ago by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation Unesco.

Ngcobo added Zuma would cover the "celebration of the works on the issues of culture and history.”

He added they originally planned to book Zuma for a live performance but the former head of state has his hands full with his other duties.

So, because of his busy schedule, they settled on a record deal. Zuma has been living life to the fullest after he stepped down as the president.
