It’s municipal election time in South Africa and what better way for political leaders to encourage South Africans to vote for their party than by bringing together Mzansi’s hottest celebs to rally for them. The ANC and the EFF gathered up a few celebs to bring in more voters but should these celebs be publically supporting political parties?

At the start of October, the EFF led by Julius Malema, gathered Ntando Duma, Uncle Vinny and Skeem Saam actors Cornet Mamabolo and Clement Maosa for their rallies across Mpumalanga. YouTuber Lasizwe Dambuza attend the EFF rally in Leslie.  

These celebs put on their finest black and red gear for EFF rallies and got down to some amapiano with EFF supporters. As the municipal elections draws closer, Clement Moasa reminded EFF supporters to vote.


The ANC is bringing out Mzansi’s top celebs too! Amapiano artists Lady Du, Young Stunna, songstress Makhadzi, Ciza and DJs Shimza and Thuli Phongolo are all set to perform at the ANC’s Siyanqoba Rally in Katlehong on Friday 29 October. 

Lady Du expressed her excitement for the rally by sharing the post on her Instagram but unfortunately for her, fans were unimpressed by her decision to support the ruling party.

One fan wrote: “Forget it! Not a snowball’s chance in hell!”

Another wrote: “Should have just gone there in silence, these political programmes are degrading some of you guys. But then what can we say, when money talks we’ll have to keep quiet.”

Many of Mzansi’s celebs have publically supported various political parties in the past but it might not always be a good thing for their brand.

Speaking to City Press in 2016, advertising maverick Sylvester Chauke mentioned that brands should be neutral when it comes to religion and politics and this includes celebrities.

“Declaring publically which political brand you belong to as a celebrity can be damaging because you have selected a brand to promote.” 

“Endorsing a political party may compromise a celebrity because people are aware that public figures cannot endorse a political party for the fun of it; at the end of the day they are compensated,” Chauke added.
