Snippets of the interview have been shared on social media by a website called Mgosi and it promises to give Mzansi the answers they have been looking for - or at least AKA’s version of the events.

In one of the snippets, Mrototo asks the rapper why he broke the door down. The clip cuts just before AKA can answer the question.

In another snippet, the rapper reveals that the police flew from Cape Town to interview his ex and mother of his child, DJ Zinhle. This move concerned AKA as he wasn’t sure what direction the investigation was going in.

He asked:

“Detectives flying up from Cape Town to interview Zinhle. Why? What is the direction of this inquest?"

The snippets of the interview have already caused mixed reactions from social media users. Some believe that the rapper is speaking out too soon while others think that it’s time he set the record straight.

Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that the crew members of the MacG podcast have shared their thoughts about AKA’s return to the stage.

They believe that the rapper returned prematurely to performing, given the extent of the tragedy he suffered. AKA performed at the Nedbank Cup Final on 7 May.

Speaking on the podcast, Sol Phenduka said:

“I think AKA shouldn’t have performed. I think the whole thing was triggered by him performing at the Nedbank Cup Final. He shouldn’t have performed, you just lost your partner…
"I know a bag is a bag is a bag but AKA has been relevant for so many years, I’m pretty sure he can… if he needs to forfeit… I mean Nedbank it’s not like they’re tone deaf they saw what happened to him, they’ll understand him pulling out.“

The podcasters agreed that the rapper should have taken time off. Sol went on to say that even exposing private messages he had with Nelli Tembe’s father was not a good move.

“I think you shouldn’t have done that bro, those were in confidence. That’s a father speaking absolutely honestly about his daughter and you’re deciding to put that up as a defence? That looks bad bro! That looks bad cause now you’re not gonna get any favour from that family.”
