The Ndlovu Youth Choir is encouraging South Africans to get the Covid-19 vaccine with a new song and dance. 

"Now that the vaccines are here, let's encourage one another to get the jab and do the #JabaJaba," a post on the group's official Twitter account reads, along with the new music video.

"To get the party going strong, people dancing all night long, get vaccinated! Get the jab so we can jive," the choir sings.

The song dropped on Monday as South Africa readied itself for the arrival of the first Covid-19 vaccine doses.

While some fans applauded the message sent by the choir, the group was also met with negativity online. 

"Can't believe the propaganda behind this! I've bee loving your work choir Africa. Your talent blows my mind but you are now obviously being controlled for propaganda purposes. So sad," one Instagram user commented.
