EFF supporters have new music to jive to after the party released a new campaign song - a collaboration with singer Ntando Duma and popular Kwaito group Alaska.

The Gqom song samples a speech by EFF leader Julius Malema during struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's funeral. In the speech, which took a life of its own on social media, Malema is heard asking Madikizela-Mandela to send a signal.

 With isiZulu lyrics, Ntando Duma then sings that they want free education and employment.   Gqom is an informal genre from Kwaito conceived in KwaZulu-Natal.

 National elections will take place on May 8.  KEEP UPDATED on the latest news by subscribing to our FREE newsletter.
