The Ndlovu Youth Choir took to social media on Monday, 1 February and encouraged Mzansi citizens to take the vaccine.

The finalists of America's Got Talent took to Twitter and shared a music video of their new song titled Jaba Jaba. The talented Mzansi choir captioned their post:

"Now that the vaccines are here, let’s encourage one another to get the jab and do the #JabaJaba."

The song encourages citizens to get vaccinated in order to get back to the groove. Check out some of the lyrics of the choir's track below:

"To get the party going strong, people dancing all night long - Get vaccinated! Get the jab so we can jive, to get back to the groove after lockdown's got you down - Get vaccinated!"

The majority of social media users who commented on the choir's post dragged them for pushing government "propaganda". They questioned the timing of the release of the track. Some tweeps praised the choir for dropping the song on the day Mzansi received the first batch of vaccines.
