After openly supporting the IFP, popular maskandi musician Buselaphi Phungula of oBuselaphi has dared the SABC's Ukhozi FM to ban her music, "if they want to".

Phungula is the first musician, apart from the late Vuyo Mokoena, to openly declare support of the IFP.

This is after severalartists and musicians had openly supported the ANC in the run-up to last month's elections.

Speaking during a Siyabonga Rally in Ulundi on Friday, Phungula said she was an IFP member.

"I have supported the IFP since I was young and I am not about to change," she said.

Phungula dared Ukhozi FM to ban her music if it wanted to, saying that would not change her political affiliation in the least.

"I don't care if the SABC bans my music because of my affiliation with the IFP," she said.

Phungula said she would continue to play an important role in IFP structures.

"As artists we have a right to choose our own political parties. For as long our affiliations do not affect what we do for a living, there's nothing wrong with it," she said.

Phungula's outburst comes just two weeks after popular YFM DJ Sbu Leope was suspended from his show for allegedly appearing in public next to ANC president Jacob Zuma at a Siyanqoba rally.

But after the ANCYL intervened Leope was reinstated.
