Veteran singer Thandiswa Mazwai is not impressed with the South African government. Mzansi has been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, lives have been lost and infections are increasing every single day.

Thandiswa took to social media to share her two cents on how she feels about the South African government. In a series of tweets, Thandiswa was not holding back and let the timeline know what was on her mind.

"Did you know that some European governments are paying South African jazz musicians a Covid grant every month? Not me but some are getting it," said Thandiswa.

Thandiswa shared that she along with her band received payment from the Mzansi government but it was only once. According to Thandiswa, they received R20 000 from the Covid-19 relief fund and it helped with buying groceries.

She then dragged the South African government for not doing enough for local artists. She took jabs at the government for the alleged looting of the Covid-19 relief funds.

"The worst thing you can do to an artist is having them obsessing about bills and not music."
"Imagine that another government is doing for us what our home government should do, instead of looting."
