However, the two also expressed their disappointment about the minister’s alleged “parasitic” tendencies that see him “jump into engagement” when artists do well on the global stage, but fails to engage the struggles of artists with the same vigour.

“What Master KG has achieved is wonderful. Congrats! He does not deserve to have his achievement hijacked. Why has the minister not given artists a chance to speak to him directly in the last five months?” Lebo asked.

Lebo said artists were suffering, and some were even suicidal, due to their financial stresses and many other struggles the minister has failed to adequately address.

Rami echoed Lebo’s concern: “But you know this is the only kind of engagement our minister likes.

“I’m honestly tired of fighting with minister Nathi wena Lebo. In fact, saying ‘ I’m tired’ is an understatement,” Rami said.
