The Eastern Cape Health MEC has denied farting mid-interview, but that hasn’t stopped Max Hurrell from creating another banging tune.


Eastern Cape, South Africa (19 May 2020) – Sindiswa Gomba, the Eastern Cape Health MEC, has heavily condemned the videos being shared of her on social media “farting” mid-interview but that hasn’t stopped South Africans from laughing at the clip, or Max Hurrell from turning it into another banging song!

It is a South African trait to laugh rather than cry, it seems to be a thing that runs through every person and helps us cope when we have no other options. Time and time again, we have shared moments of anguish by laughing a little, and this video is bringing all the tears of laughter!

HeraldLive reported that on Monday, a video, where Gomba is heard saying she was disappointed that the Eastern Cape did not get white doctors like KwaZulu-Natal, went viral.

“By Monday evening, a second video had surfaced. In the video, Gomba, while fumbling over her words, farts. Health spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo said the videos were both edited to misrepresent the MEC.”

The hilarious video has been doing the rounds on social (you can also watch it at the bottom of this article), and now it looks like the talented producer has created another viral sensation.

Hurrell’s recently went viral and hit number 1 on the iTunes music charts with his “But also, when people Zol” song.

That song uses Cabinet minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma’s speech in defence of the tobacco ban.

A few weeks ago, the minister announced that the national command council had elected to ban the sale of cigarettes for the duration of the lockdown. She cited health concerns raised by some citizens and medical experts during public engagements with the government.

“When people zol, they put saliva on a paper, and then they share that zol,” said the minister, adding that this was concerning as it undermined social distancing.

DJ Max Hurrell then laid these vocal samples over a track which he describes as “house and afro with a driving and powerful bassline”. The song immediately went viral on social media eventually catching the Ministers attention.

Watch his new track below, which is bound to be another hit:
