DJ Fresh slams former Jo’burg mayor, Herman Mashaba for throwing shade at EMS’s viral #JerusalemaChallenge.
Have you guys seen the viral video of the Jozi Emergency Medical Services (EMS) doing the #JerusalemaChallenge? Cool right? It already has so many people talking, including disapproval from the former mayor of Jo’burg.
Reacting to the video, the politician, Herman Mashaba criticized the essential workers saying other countries train theirs to protect the citizens while Mzansi trains hers to dance. He ended the tweet by asking what’s happening in the country.
His criticism of the video got a response from radio personality, DJ Fresh who slammed the politician’s opinion about it. Replying, he reminded him that the EMS workers also take breaks from their busy schedule and can decide what to do with it. He also reminded him the kinds of breaks they take and that they also go home after work hours.
Many hailed him for his reply to the tweet. Master KG and Nomcebo’s hit song “Jerusalema” has achieved a lot of success all over Africa and beyond. The song’s video has amassed over 80 million views on YouTube alone, while it’s remix featuring Burna Boy has been certified Gold with over 15 million streams.
Sir, it’s called “People on a break, choosing what to do with their break”! Unless you don’t believe that people should let their hair down …. respite-nyana!! They also do loo breaks by the way …. and lunch … AND go home after their shifts!!! 🤷🏿♂️ https://t.co/GrlLuHVNqZ
