- SA rapper and hip-hop star AKA shared his view on the event but left South Africans thinking he missed the point
After AKA tweeted about the visit Barack Obama made to South Africa, South Africans struggled to figure out exactly what he meant.
Part of AKA's tweet read: "I totally understand the relevance and the inspiration of Obama being the 1st black president...try and make it sound like it's supposed to mean something to a South African who's been living in a country run by black people for 24 years."
Tweeps were left with questions and addressed AKA about it.
