Words you will hear today: Eminem's Lose yourself

Eminem's publishing company has been awarded with $ 415 000 after the High Court in New Zealand ruled that a political party infringed on the rapper's copyright by using a version of his 2002 8 Mile hit "Lose Yourself" in a 2014 election advertisement.

The song titled "Eminem-esque," was purchased by the National Party, from a stock music library.

According to reports, the country's High Court ruled the track was "sufficiently similar" to the hip-hop star's "highly original work".

Jonathan Fairbairn asks if South African political parties had to use a soundtrack for the 2019 elections what would it be?

Perhaps the ANC's could be talking heads Road to Nowhere.
