“What about the people?” – Marc Lottering wrote an incredibly powerful song as a plea to President Cyril Ramaphosa to help starving South Africans.


Cape Town, South Africa (12 August 2020) – Comedian Marc Lottering put his jokes aside to write an incredibly powerful song which addresses the President of South Africa and pleas for him to assist the South African people.

The song comes months after Lottering started spending his time in soup kitchens feeding hungry South Africans. Now, months down the line, the desperation has more than doubled, but the aid from the government is still nowhere to be found.

Soup kitchens and feeding schemes are breaking their backs to find sponsors and donors to help keep the food coming. With more mouths to feed, times are getting tougher for all.

Lottering has been working tirelessly with Ladles of Love. In April of this year, he helped put on a show to raise much-needed funding. Later on, in July, he played his part in the organisation by being part of a record-breaking sandwich-making session.

Ladles of Love is a volunteer-run organisation that has been tasked with feeding thousands of homeless, destitute and starving across the Western Cape. The organisation has provided millions of meals to date. But it still isn’t enough!

People collaborated and are using their voices to speak up. They are emploring the government to help. The goal is to make the video go viral so the President and his colleagues can get the message.

Marc Lottering collaborated with talented singer and winner of The Voice SA, Craig Dillion Lucas (a goosebumps voice!) and activist Joanie Fredericks to get the most powerful message across.

People are starving in South Africa, Mr President… We think it is time you paid attention!

Take a look at the powerful song and video below. Let’s get it viral!
