For this, Mofokate was subjected to a frenzy of ridicule on social media.

Mofokate went on Twitter to congratulate Mashaba by saying, “Wow! Bra Herman Mashaba who used to be sponsor us as dancers is about to be a Mayor of the most powerful city in Africa.”

However, the mayor of the City of Johannesburg had not been elected at the time the King of Kwaito congratulated Mashaba.

This caused uproar on Twitter, as Mafokate is always known as one of the celebrities who sing the praises of the African National Congress. Others went as far questioning whether Mafokate was creating a new ally in Mashaba.
