The ANC is famous worldwide for being the political party of Nelson Mandala. Now that the great man is gone, the South African organization has been reduced to petty feuds with Nicki Minaj that involve the 'Anaconda' singer's breasts.
Here's what happened: Minaj had been scheduled to play the TribeOne Dinokeng Festival in the South African city of Tshwane last month. However, the festival, which was also to include J Cole and Macklemore, was cancelled a week before it was set to open. It turns out Tshwane didn't have the infrastructure to host such an event.
Minaj had been paid a $900,000 deposit by the festival's organizers, who had received some government money to put on the show. Minaj kept the cash once the event was cancelled, as was her right.
This enraged the ANC Youth League (ANCYL), which is a wing of South Africa's ruling party.
So much so that an ANCYL spokesperson got on TV and put Nicki and her bust line on blast. "She knows she hasn't worked for the money,” said ANCYL’s Lesego Makhubela, who wants Minaj to donate the deposit to charity. "We don’t want taxpayers’ money to be used on Nicki Minaj’s boob jobs."
So you're saying she needs a boob job? Those would be some out of control knockers.
No word on whether J Cole and Macklemore also kept their deposits. Or what body party the ANC would accuse them of enhancing if they did.
