When Fifi Cooper announced that EFF political party will be assisting her on the case brought against her by former record label AE, most people speculated that the party’s aim is to make her their puppet. During an interview with TshisaLIVE publication the rapper expressed her relations with EFF further clarifying that she is not their puppet.
“I feel like they saw an injustice and they wanted to help. They fight many cases, not just mine. They fight for you when they feel there is an injustice. I am not a puppet. I am an artist and I appreciate what they did for me. It doesn’t matter how I feel about Julius (as a politician), he saved my life. I would have been in Maftown (her hometown of Mahikeng) now without him.”
She said the EFF even booked her for their events when other promoters wouldn’t touch her because of the court battle.
“I am not an EFF artist. To tell you the truth, I believe that everything in your life happens for a reason and if the EFF are meant to be in my life for a reason then who am I to dispute it? It is not about what people think I am.”
