The government of Limpopo has bought more than 200 new ambulances in preparation for many injuries this coming festive season, all because of King Monada’s song, Malwedhe. The king of Bolobedu house music’s latest offering has taken the whole of South Africa and neighbouring countries by storm.
In the song, King Monada explains that his sicknesses are linked to the love he has for his girlfriend. He says he faints when the love of his life dumps or cheats on him. The ‘idibala’ trend has made masses of people pretend to faint whenever the song is blazing.
The Limpopo government is taking precautionary measures to ensure that medical assistance is just a stone throw away should people get injured when people ‘faint’. They have added 200 new ambulances to their current fleet. It is not clear if other provinces have put measures in place in preparation for the festive season.
“We are a caring government that puts people first. We know the song will be big this season and we have to prepare for any injuries. King Monada is a very talented young man. He is currently the best artist in South Africa. The government is very supportive of his and other artists in the province,” said Limpopo government spokesperson.
Fans across Limpopo welcomed the government’s intervention with open arms. “I am happy they are taking care of us. I am planning to faint more than 100 times this festive season. King Monada is our king,” said Mpho Malatji from Bolobedu, outside Tzaneen.
