VIDEO: Zuma Must Fall song grows

The video asking Zuma to step down grows by a more than thousand views daily.

YouTube views for the Zuma Must Fall that surfaced last week keep rolling in their thousands as the campaign continues to grasp at various media to spread its message.

On Friday, a Zuma Must Fall billboard mysteriously appeared in the middle of Cape Town and was there for a few days before members of the ANC pulled it down.

The song, simply titled Zuma Must Fall, is a collaboration between Don Clarke and Special Care, who have previously worked together on the song, The Long Walk is Over, which won The Great American Song Contest in 2014.

Clarke is an award-winning KwaZulu-Natal singer-songwriter Don Clarke, who has written hits for PJ Powers and Leon Schuster. Special Care, or Thembiso Sithole, is a local rapper and friend of Clarke.

The video has so far accumulated about 26 700 views on YouTube after it was posted last week Monday, January 11.

Sithole told Independent Online that when he and Clark discussed the state of the current government leadership and what South Africans were subjected to, he felt a need to be part of the song.

He said they had to express their feelings and express in their lyrics why Zuma had to fall.
