Julius Malema announces a financial support package for artists during the nationwide lockdown.
For a while now, the reality of the nationwide lockdown has dawned on Mzansi. While we’re all locked within our houses, it is clear that the pandemic has hit the Entertainment industry the most. With concerts and events cancelled all over the country, many artists who have to make a living from them have been left with nothing.
After the president’s address last week, it became obvious that nothing would be happening for a while. President of the Economic Freedom Fighters, Julius Malema, in a recent statement, announced a relief package in support of Mzansi artists nationwide who have worked with the EFF.
In his statement, he recognized that the artists’ means of livelihood has been cut off, and revealed there will be financial support made available for them. Oskido, took to Instagram to share a clip from the address and thanked Malema on behalf of the artists who need the support.
