Ladysmith Black Mambazo has divided fans after Thembinkosi Ngcobo announced that the group had reached out to assist the Municipality in creating a struggle song album with former president Jacob Zuma
Award-winning Ladysmith Black Mambazo has disappointed some of their fans after expressing their interest in working with ex-president Jacob Zuma on his struggle song album.
Thembinkosi Ngcobo, who is the eThekwini head of parks and recreation, confirmed on eNCA yesterday that the Grammy Award winning group had reached out to offer assistance in the creation of the former president’s musical debut.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo offered its studio facilities for free in order to facilitate the live recording as well as a possible collaboration.
The album is set to be released later this year and will feature Zuma’s rendition of his favourite struggle songs.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the Democratic Alliance has announced it will be fighting the production of the album. Nicole Graham, a DA councillor in eThekwini municipality, said that the album had not been proposed before a council committee as well as calling for accountability in Ngcobo’s department.
