Just when we thought the whole payola scandal was behind us after AKA and Juju kissed and made up, the rapper goes and open old wounds.

After winning big in Lagos, AKA took to Instagram Live to share his views on claims that he gets more airtime than other artists on radio stations.

In December, Juju spoke about airtime and payola, particularly pointing AKA out. It led the rapper asking Malema why he had to lift only him out in his argument.

However, Briefly.co.za learned AKA has now opened up about the entire ordeal, and he managed to throw major shade at his rivals while doing so.

"I see a lot of people saying it is a dirty game and I have the remedy. Let me tell you why radio ain't playing your sh*t, it is because your sh*t doesn't bang, bro. Okay? You're not making hot sh*t. That is why the radio isn't playing you," he was quoted saying.

According to TshisaLIVE, AKA added that he has been making 'hot' music for a decade now and the 'losers' were just complaining.

"I've been making hot sh*t for ten years. It's simple. Winners win. Losers complain about winners," he said.

AKA, whose real name is Kiernan Forbes, added the sore losers used payola as a scapegoat for their failures and instead of complaining, they should go back to the studio and work hard.

"It has nothing to do with payola. It has nothing to do with anything. Make hot sh*t. Go back to the studio and stop complaining. Stop complaining and work hard. Maybe radio isn't playing your sh*t because it sucks?"
