I love Tupac and Biggie for the sake of reconciliation, says EFF's Comrade Bae

Some refer to the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters) spokesperson as 'The People's Bae' or 'Comrade Bae', but there's more to him than meets the eye.

702's Azania Mosaka speaks to Mbuyiseni Ndlozi and gets to find out what he is really about.

Listen to the interview below:

Once I believed that I might be a pastor. I grew up very charismatised and I also thought I might be an academic.

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF national spokesperson

Most lecturers sat me down and said that I should consider pursuing post-graduate studies because I have something to say academically.

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF national spokesperson

Ndlozi said he is under the mentorship of collective EFF leaders, as well as Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu.

He is currently pursuing a PhD qualification exploring black youth politics and political subjectivity.

I have huge admiration for my mother. You think about where she was and who she was when she was my age, I realised that she's truly strong. She represents a lot of black women out there who are deserted by their lovers.

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF national spokesperson

The love of black people drives me. I am mentored by the Deputy President and the CIC of the EFF, they are like Oliver Tambo and Nelson Mandela.

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF national spokesperson
