Musos slam ANCYL threats over Juju song

2011-11-07 16:06
Durban - Maskandi group Izingane Zoma has bemoaned ANC Youth League (ANCYL) threats to stop the release of a song they wrote about its leader Julius Malema.

"The ladies are hurt," producer Shobeni Khuzwayo said on Monday.

"They find themselves being oppressed as women and not being able to express themselves freely in a democratic country."

Izingane Zoma reportedly wrote a song accusing Malema of being uncontrollable, and of criticising the ANC leadership.

The single, called uMalema, had been sent to radio stations and was expected to be aired on Thursday.

Fight release

African National Congress Youth League general secretary Sindiso Magaqa said the league would fight the release of the song in court and sue the group for defamation.

"If they release that stupid song, we will hit them hard."

Khuzwayo said on Monday: "Blocking the song would be an infringement on the group's rights to express themselves freely about events and people that dominate talks socially."

No contact

The ANCYL had not contacted the group to discuss the song, Khuzwayo said.

"We haven't had any communication with the ANCYL regarding the song. We only learned of their dissatisfaction in the media. However we are willing to engage with them and address their concerns," he said.

The same group released a song about President Jacob Zuma before he was elected ANC president in 2007. Called Msholozi, after Zuma's clan name, the song called for him to be president and for corruption charges against him to be dropped.

    Dictatorship here we come! Doesn't he just look every bit like someone that would kill ANYBODY that stands in his way?

      Vusi. I am liking you more and more. Why don't you show Malema the correct way to mobilize the youth of this country for change. I'm sure you can organise a more spectacular action. Show Malema it is possible to protest without racial slurs and threats. You will have my support.

    Stupid song for a stupid leader. Let us hear it.

      zinzile.msebe - 2011-11-08 13:04

      Great song for a stupid leader.

  • Lyndatjie - 2011-11-07 16:30

    Poor Malema... insists on freedom of speech - but when he is on the receiving end of Said Freedom - then he and his cohorts want to cry fowl. Grow up children - you can't live in the grown-up world, scream and shout that you are adults and then cry like little brats when your own medicine comes back to you. Pathetic!

  • thulebona.zulu - 2011-11-07 16:57

    Sorry Malema, you've upset the Zulus now... the end is nigh

  • Dolf - 2011-11-07 17:03

    So .... they are allowed to sing "kill the boer" but they may not dare accuse Malema of being uncontrollable and accuse him of criticising the ANC leadership? .... hmmm yeah right!!!!

  • Atomicduzt - 2011-11-07 17:11

    LOVE IT!!! Can not wait...

      Thozi - 2011-11-07 20:30

      I haven't heard the song yet but I already love it stacks! Oh by the way, I've always played music softly like a true gentleman in my car. I'm ready to announce that, with this song, you haven't met worst rascal.

  • Koos - 2011-11-07 17:14

    "zingane Zoma reportedly wrote a song accusing Malema of being uncontrollable, and of criticising the ANC leadership." Now why was the long hearing about? Wish they will make another song if the ANC's committee a ex boer as chairperson doesn't get rid of him. I support THIS song. It's a cultural song about the freedom fight - economic freedom.

    "The same group released a song about President Jacob Zuma before he was elected ANC president in 2007.

Agg man, not because I'm for malema but it's clear that they been paid to discredit malema so that pres zuma can go for the second term.that's policks any way,

      Johan - 2011-11-07 20:16

      Malema is doing a good job of discrediting himself - the song is just great for nation building :)

      Deirdre - 2011-11-09 13:02

      Please could you explain how you reckon they've been paid?

  • Barry - 2011-11-07 20:32

  • Harlem - 2011-11-08 10:38

    Vusi ..you are absolutely spot on...having studied a number of his expressions on photographs, i can assure you that he is an Idi Amin inthe making...better to stop him now then have to expose this beautiful country to him and his cronies, should he gain more political power..

      zinzile.msebe - 2011-11-08 13:29
