Nota has never been a person to shy away from expressing his political views and addressing political leaders where necessary.

Why Nota will vote for the MK

The outspoken media personality mentioned that while Jacob Zuma was still president, he could write an open letter to the SABC directed at the radio station 5 FM, criticising them for not supporting black music.

"Under Zuma, I was able to write a letter to 5FM, sit across the board room tables with the managers at 5FM and give them the middle finger... because they weren't playing black music and tried to make black culture look too cheap to play on-air. Because it would scare away advertisers," Nota said.
