It seems that Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma wants to have some words with producer Max Hurrell about his latest song.

South African smokers have been on edge following the U-turn with regards to the sale of cigarettes in Dlamini Zuma's address last month. 

Local music producer Hurrell has sampled Dlamini Zuma's speech, where she explains why the government decided to uphold the ban on cigarette sales and turned it into an EDM-infused song called "ZOL". 

The song quickly started circulating online, even finding itself as a dance challenge on TikTok, and it seems to have made its way to Dlamini Zuma. 


🚨NEW CHALLENGE🚨 Lets see how you put saliva on the paper! Hashtag: ##salivazol then tag: ME & @maxhurrell ##tiktoksouthafrica@tiktok.southafrica

♬ ZOL - Max Hurrell

Taking to her Twitter account on Wednesday, she posted: "Who is this Max Hurrel fellow? We just need to talk."

Tweeps jumped into the conversation, with one user tagging Hurrell in the post, with him replying, "lol, lets talk", and him quote tweeting Dlamini Zuma with, "It’s going down".

We'll have to wait and see if Hurrell does in fact sit down with the minister to talk about "ZOL".
