#Budget2018: Gigaba jokes about his candy crush addiction and quotes Kendrick Lamar!

Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba’s Budget Speech did not only see him raise value-added tax (VAT) only, but eyebrows as well when he quoted Kendrick Lamar during the deliverance of his speech.

When President Cyril Ramaphosa quoted Hugh Masekela’s song, Thuma Mina (Send Me) in his maiden state of the nation address, the clip went viral and was considered by many as a unifier among South Africans. And it seems Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba attempted the same, only he quoted Kendrick Lamar, and Twitter had a field day.

Gigaba was giving his first budget speech and said: “As urban poet Kendrick Lamar says: ‘We gon’ be right, we gon’ be alright.'”


Twitter was quick to point out that in the song Alright by the American rapper, the line is actually ‘N***a we gon’ be alright, n***a we gon’ be alright.’

And then the memes started rolling in. They were never ready.
