- Anti gender-based violence (GBV) group, Women For Change, has amplified their call for AKA to be muted and cancelled
- This comes after the rapper shared a distasteful post online that left many social media users outraged
- The controversial post saw AKA standing outside, smoking a cigarette, while listening to a song about urinating on graves
Women For Change activists have been left horrified by rapper AKA’s recent Instagram post and amplified their calls to have him muted. The post depicted AKA smoking a cigarette with a seriously distasteful song playing in the background.
Many have assumed that the song is alluding to the controversial passing of his fiancée Nelli Tembe. Taking to Twitter on their official account, the group re-shared the rapper’s post and captioned it:
“AKA finally showing us the real him... How little respect can someone have ...#muteaka”
They have continued to call on the masses to mute the musician and his music.
Social media users shared their thoughts on the post:
“Some days you get very angry at a dead loved one when you are mourning their death due to suicide. He must just stay off social media.”
“I'm still in disbelief to think I was feeling sorry for the dude.”
“Truth is he's in pain, mentally he's down & that's no news to anyone. When people are hurting, don't conclude that's who they truly are. It's very likely for people to act out of character when they're hurting (from personal experience). Let him process the pain any way he can for now.”
“My late high school girlfriend passed on after years of us dating. I remember crying till I could not any more & all I had left was hurt, anger & confusion at the once to a point that I cursed her for leaving me on my birthday. Trust me, he's going through it right now.”
AKA leaves social media users outraged with strange post
Briefly News reported that the rapper recently took to social media to post a snap of himself standing outside smoking a cigarette.
While the picture itself was not out of the ordinary, it was his choice of song that left many social media users in disbelief. AKA chose to play P*ss on Your Grave by Travis Scott.
Many were disturbed by the fact that the song seemed to be alluding to the death of the late Tembe and felt that it was in poor taste. AKA did not specify why he chose that particular song but it did not stop the masses from assuming the worst.
