SA dirty dancing to Malema

2010-04-20 22:40

Pietermaritzburg - Dance hits have been brewed out of ANC Youth League head Julius Malema's rant at BBC journalist Jonah Fisher during the league's media briefing at Luthuli House last week.

A few house music DJs have remixed Malema's sound bites in two songs called Revolutionary House and Tjatjarag! loosely translated as 'hold your horses'.

Titles of the songs were apparently adapted from his coining of the word "tjatjarag" and from his emphasis on Luthuli House being a "revolutionary house" when he was addressing Fisher.

Malema told Fisher not to be "tjatjarag" and that the ANC headquarters is a "revolutionary house" therefore Fisher had to "behave or jump".

The songs, which have won the hearts of many youths and are reportedly played at parties, are on high rotation on 5FM and YouTube.

The songs can be downloaded here.
