Jack of all trades? Hlaudi reveals album!

Mashudu Malema | 21 April 2017

On Wednesday afternoon, the former SABC COO participated in yet another press conference which he says was arranged by ‘friends of Hlaudi’ – yes fam, that’s an actual thing apparently.

Topics discussed at the conference included the the newly appointed SABC interim board and the controversial 90 percent local content rule.

But Hlaudi wouldn’t be Hlaudi if he didn’t use the opportunity to again express (lest we could forget) that there is in fact, ‘only one Hlaudi in the world!’

As the former COO continued to address members of the press and supporters gathered, the release of the CD in his honour was in full swing!

The ‘Friends of Hlaudi’ CD was handed out at his press conference

The ‘Friends of Hlaudi’ CD, which appears to be a homemade compilation has no affiliation with RISA (Recording Industry of South Africa), was handed out at the press conference and musician William graced the stage to perform UHlaudi ngowethu to the delight of supporters, shortly before Hlaudi took to the podium.

His “friends” danced along to the track, which carried the melody of a traditional wedding song.
