This comes after the Akulaleki hitmaker vowed to never perform at an ANC event ever again.

During his sit-down interview with Robot Boii and Mpho Popps on Popcorn and Cheese last year, the singer criticised the governing party for lack of service delivery, especially in his hometown of Hammanskraal where residents have had to deal with contaminated drinking water for years.

It appears the vocalist went against his views as he accepted an ANC booking at the weekend and gave an electrifying, dynamic performance.
