- AKA's social media water diet ain't working
- Mzansi's Supa Mega lost it online and claims he doesn't need any celeb support
- Cass got on the bandwagon and preached that everyone needs to stick together
A while back AKA adopted the “drink water and mind your own business” method. This is the way he was able to deal with social media. The debate going on about slamming other artists in the industry has seen AKA move away from his previous method, and he seems to be a little more vocal where this topic is concerned.
The fact that AKA’s album Levels has gone seven-time platinum saw the star on cloud nine this week.
Briefly.co.za learnt that it was brought to AKA’s attention when a fan commented that he had not seen any other celebs sending words of congratulations to him for his achievement.
The fan went on to say that celebs are always preaching with regards to unity and supporting each other but no response to AKA’s amazing news. The fan said that is does not matter as all his fans are there for him.
With this, AKA responded and hit back hard at other artists. He said that for all those in the industry who do not support him, he doesn’t need them anyway. He commented further and called them a bunch of fake n*****.
Aka added that he has never been reliant on celebrities to be there to support him or even be there to defend him. When he thinks about it, it has been the total opposite and he has done just fine with any of their help.
We can only imagine how his comment has been received. Fans have rallied together in conversation and AKA gave his stamp of approval a short while later, indicating that it is indeed the fans' support that he needs and that’s all.
The comments made by AKA were made only a few day after his rival, Cassper Nyovest, cautioned that things were “dark” on the these streets. He said that trouble was brewing because of disunity and all the egos!
Cassper commented that he just wants to see the culture in a good place and is not looking for any praise. There was so much potential for SA hip-hop but each and every day it looks like ego is winning that fight. He claims that only a few will be able to survive.
"You know what, I just wanna see the culture in a good place. Don't really care if I get praised for it. SA hip-hop had the potential to be so huge in Africa but the ego has won the fight. Only a few will survive."
