Finance Minister Tito Mboweni could join Masterchef South Africa and now even Idols SA if he wanted to.
The minister filmed himself a singing a freedom song about an Irish Republican Army member who had been executed in 1920. Mboweni simply captioned the post, "Kevin Berry", which is the name of the song.
Take a look at the clip below:
The video gathered over 88 500 views and South Africans had a lot to say. Some weren't more impressed with Mboweni's singing than his cooking.
Twitter user, Ori_Debig_Beats, commented:
"Y’all politicians do things after you drink, it started with Herman Mashaba playing piano... now it’s you."
One Saffa decided Mboweni's video needed just a little extra beat so he made an amapiano remix with the minister's video.
The tweep, who was only identified as @tito_mboweni, commented:
"I was tempted to do the remake Minister, it sounds much better with headphones on."
Listen to the remix below:
South Africans were more impressed by the remixed version and they applauded the muso on his skills.
Twitter user, @CosiRomanis, commented:
"No man, stop this now! You're making him famous for a career in the singing chef, before he can deliver on the recovery plan..."
