Reality TV star and Tsonga Musician Papa Penny, real name Eric Nkovhani, did not mince his words hitting back at EFF leader Julias Malema after he called him uneducated at his party’s rally last weekend.
In a short video that is doing the rounds on social media and appears to be a political spat ahead of the 2019 national elections, Papa Penny says he has no love for the red berets leader and accuses him of faking his education.
“Ahee Julius Malema. Now you are pressing a wrong button,” Papa Penny said appearing short-fused in the video. He reariterated that he was a member of the ANC and never subscribed for the EFF.
“I have never seen a stupid guy like Malema who is going around his campaign talking about Penny Penny. First of all I am not a member of the EFF. Malema started the spat in his campaign a rally at Nkowa Nkowa, Tzaneen, in the weekend when he said that Papa Penny was uneducated and was the reason he was following the ANC.
“This old man here who owns this big company ZZ2 has taken over the leadership of the ANC in this area starting with this uneducated one called Penny Penny,” Malema said.
The disco King then took it to social media asking Malema if he could not get educated people to vote for him than attack his name. “Why don’t you get people with education to vote EFF and leave those that have not been to school alone?
“You are nothing! You crook people and steal money from your own councilors. “ANC does not cut my salary. Maybe you lost your father, I do have an ugly son like you, you must go to hell!” belowed Papa Penny.
The music legend had entered the world of politics as a councilor in the Giyani Local Municipality and had set his sights on running for the position of Limpopo ANC Chairperson last year.
Responding to the backlash on also on social media, Malema laughed it off, telling Papa Penny that he was his “main man”. “I love him too much,” he said.
