Despite telling fans that they'd waste their time voting for him and that he doesn't need awards, missing out on the best album award at the SAMAs must have affected AKA. Twitter wasn't very nice about it at all - they tweeted using the hashtag #AKAwinanga.
The South African Music Awards are done and dusted, and many musicians received their due credit.
Those who missed out on the awards they were nominated for had to swallow their disappointment and be happy for the winners - that's just good sportsmanship.
However, the public doesn't have to be nice about it at all, and Black Twitter went after AKA like a pack of hungry hyenas.
AKA was nominated for the Best Hip-Hop Album along with Nasty C, Jabba, Kid X, and Emtee, according to SAHipHopMag.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Nasty C won the award despite AKA's album, Touch My Blood, reaching double platinum.
