In the world where everyone wants to ‘Idibala’ Monada is King. Indeed King Monada is running the world as his Malwede single has been given cover versions and launched music careers for some new artists and performers that rocked ‘You Tube’.
Not to be left on the highway of Malwede obsession, the national road traffic agency has appealed to Limpopo artist King Monada to become a road safety ambassador following the success of his Idibala dance craze.
To this effect King Monada’s producer Makwela confirmed that Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) wrote to Monada – born Khutso Kgatla – seeking his buy-in in its road safety campaign ahead of the festive season.
RTMC chairperson Zola Majavu said he was particularly concerned about the videos of the dance showing drivers “fainting” in simulations while behind the wheel of a moving car. “This simulation seems to be making waves even beyond drivers of motor vehicles but literally in all gatherings, classrooms, picnic, sports etc. We are also fast approaching the crazy festive season,” Majavu said in a letter to Monada.
“On behalf of a collective I lead, I strongly believe that we should intervene in positive manner and find joint solutions to the road carnage as opposed to being seen as promoting behaviour that would certainly lead to disaster if left uncorrected.”
We say big up to the King as we “Idibalaaaaaaa!!!”
