Nigerian artists spotted on the list of beneficiaries of the DSCA

Gayton to fish out foreigners who benefitted from the Department of Sports, Culture and Art

South African artists are not the only beneficiaries of the grant and relief funds provided by the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture.

On Thursday, social media users who went through the lengthy list spotted a few Nigerian artists on the list and called the attention of the newly appointed minister Gayton McKenzie to it.

“Department of Sport, Arts and Culture has always cared for the creative sector. Below is the link to the Covid-19 Relief Beneficiaries 2020-2021 list. More lists are coming to cover other categories of funding since 2020 to date Beneficiaries,” Gayton tweeted.

An X user made a screenshot of the list where a musician, whose name is Adetola John Aina (aka Ola Sax) received R20 000.

Other tweeps claimed that the list contained other foreigners on the list which further angered other South Africans.

Minister Gayton reacted to the observation: “I would also love to know that. I am waiting for all lists to be published TODAY!!, we shall interrogate names, reasons & criteria. Thanks.”
