Over the weekend, AKA was forced to cancel his gig at iPotsoyi Spring Festival after a man was shot dead during the concert, but he has had to put tweeps in their place for making insensitive comments about the situation.

The rapper was only moments from taking the stage on Saturday evening when panic struck the crowd as gunshots filled the air.

Organisers for the festival released a statement that confirmed that a young man had been killed in the shooting and they revealed that they will not be continuing with the concert series following the weekend’s events.

The organisers claimed to have lost their vision after the incident as they aimed to bring people together peacefully and this has done the opposite.

TimesLIVE reports that the organisers are thankful for all the support they have received, but sadly they are unable to continue with the series until the issues revolving gun violence in Cape Town has been resolved.

Briefly.co.za gathered that AKA took to Twitter to inform fans of what was happening at iPotsoyi and to offer his condolences to the victim’s family.

However, trolls saw this as an opportunity to attack AKA by making insensitive comments about the shooting.

The trolls claimed that AKA was using the shooting to garner attention and accused the rapper of making the tragic incident about him instead of the man who was killed.

Supa Mega was infuriated by the comments his tweets received so he clapped back at the trolls to remind them of the severity of the matter.
