EFF to Sho Madjozi after BET win: 'You are a symbol of black youth power'
The EFF on Tuesday joined thousands of South Africans and high-ranking politicians who congratulated Sho Madjozi after she won a BET ward in the category of best international act.
The party praised the musician's invention of a music genre which incorporates a local Tsonga sound to hip-hop, kwaito and afro-pop, and dubbed her an artistic genius who embodies "artistic excellence".
"Through her music and achievements, Madjozi inspires hope that artistic excellence can create a pathway out of the depressing situation of drug abuse prevalent among the youth."
ANC bigwigs President Cyril Ramaphosa and ministers Tito Mboweni and Fikile Mbalula also congratulated the singer.
