EFF supporters have new music to jive to after the party released a new campaign song - a collaboration with singer Ntando Duma and popular Kwaito group Alaska.

The Gqom song samples a speech by EFF leader Julius Malema during struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's funeral.

In the speech, which took a life of its own on social media, Malema is heard asking Madikizela-Mandela to send a signal. 

With isiZulu lyrics, Ntando Duma then sings that they want free education and employment.   

Gqom is an informal genre from Kwaito conceived in KwaZulu-Natal. 

National elections will take place on May 8.
