Cape Town-based producer, Max Hurrell, clearly finds infotainment in the politics of South Africa, so much so that he’s created an art form out of it.

Hurrell is known not only for his music but also for the hilarious skits he shares on his social media platforms, most notably the ones where he takes clips of politicians and government officials and turns them into hilarious songs.

“Everyone’s a lot more invested in the world of government because everyone is scared and confused,” Max tells YOU. “I took it upon myself to focus on bringing laughter and humour to the seriousness of it all.”
