- Trolls have accused AKA of paying for his success and he took the time to sarcastically reply to all of their messages
- The rapper sent out multiple tweets to ‘confess’ to everything he has done to get ‘Fela In Versace’ to number 1
- After reading all of the trolls’ comments, AKA decided to entertain himself and play along
AKA thankfully has a good sense of humor when it comes to clapping back at trolls, but he took it to a whole new level when he “confessed” to some dirty secrets that he can no longer hold on to.
AKA has seen it all and lately, tweeps have been accusing him of paying for success and he has decided to finally come out to reveal the “truth” behind his success.
Briefly.co.za reported that when ‘Fela In Versace’ dropped, the rapper has been under fire for using payola to catapult the track’s instant success, but his fans came to his rescue and it gave rise to #AKAPaidMe movement.
After taking to Twitter to fire back at haters, AKA decided to use the opportunity to jokingly confess to his crimes.
1. AKA really has been paying people to stream his music.
This probably comes as no surprise, but the rapper has supposedly spent over R1 million on data for people to download or stream his music, crazy isn’t it?
2. He is the one requesting his songs on radio.
TimesLIVE reports that AKA has been posing as ‘fans’ requesting radio stations to play his music by using a special app that randomly generates cell phone numbers, but how come no other artist has thought of doing this?
3. Promoters won't hire him, unless he pays them.
The ‘Touch My Blood’ rapper is so desperate to be loved that he payed promoters to let him perform… Shame on you, AKA!
4. He pays people to say 'we want more'.
This has got to be the most shocking revelation of them all… AKA has paid people to chant for an encore at shows.
5. AKA threatens DJ's.
Sometimes you've got to do, what you've got to do.
6. He has been brain-washing Mzansi.
For the trolls who though that his music had hidden messages, it turns out they were right…Gasp!
