The playlists of SA’s top lead­ers

US Pres­i­dent Barack Obama re­leased his playlist on desk­top mu­sic-stream­ing site Spo­tify last week.

Obama re­vealed that some of his favourite songs were penned by mu­si­cians in­clud­ing Bob Dy­lan, Bri­tish band Cold­play and US su­per­star Bey­oncé.

City Press asked Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma’s spokesper­son, Bongani Ma­jola, for some of the pres­i­dent’s favourite songs, but he only gig­gled and said he would try. No luck there.

We also asked EFF leader Julius Malema for some of the mu­sic he would choose first but he said he was too ex­hausted.

The only po­lit­i­cal leader who would pro­vide us with his playlist was DA leader Mmusi Maimane.

How­ever, we have come up with what we think is likely to be on the pres­i­den­tial iPod.

We’ve also guessed what is prob­a­bly blar­ing out of the speak­ers of Malema’s GTI. MAIMANE’S REAL PLAYLIST IN­CLUDES: Miriam Makeba & Harry Be­la­fonte – Malaika Stimela – Whis­pers in the deep Jonas Gwangwa – Kgomo Roberta Flack – Quiet fire Brian McKnight – From here to there Mafik­i­zolo – Khona Beat­en­berg – Pluto U2 – I still haven’t found what I’m look­ing for Oskido – I be­lieve Joy­ous Cel­e­bra­tion – O Mo­hau
