- AKA took to social media to add his two cents about rapper, La Flame, "slapping" a fan
- Supa Mega reflected on his own past, admitting he was much worse back in the day
- But AKA, not wanting to condone any violence, also shared how he handled a weird fan at the weekend
Mzansi rapper, AKA, took to social media to share his opinion on the La Flame incident with a fan, and reflected on his own past and “short-tempered” days.
The Fela in Versace hit-maker has had his fair share of drama with fans in the past but said he was a better person now then he was a years ago.
AKA even laughed at his old ways. He tweeted: “Come to think of it, I used to be a real short-tempered idiot.”
AKA was commenting on the video which showed rapper, La Flame “slapping” a fan when he was performing on stage.
Supa Mega tweeted: “The people on that video acting like they never seen someone get a hot klap before. The one kid is like, Why?! Why?”
One of AKA’s fans commented that he was far worse in his prime and Supa Mega seconded him saying: “True. I once karate kicked some guy who jumped on stage… it’s funny to look back on it now. I was crazy.”
But AKA did not want to condone violence or let people think what he did back then was right, so he tweeted that the key was to learn to be a better person.
“It’s unfortunate. Crazy sh*t happens from time to time. The key is [to] learn from it and do better next time”.
AKA then went to tell his fan that he was a changed man from throwing cellphones, slapping and kicking people, he is now more vested in appreciating his fans. He said during a show on Saturday night, he left the stage and hugged a fan.
And although the fan had other intentions – to kiss him on the mouth, AKA kept his cool and told just told the fan off in a calm way.
“Even last night, I got offstage and hugged some fan. Do you know what this guy does? He tries to kiss me on the mouth. Instead of actually hitting him in the face, I told him he actually deserved to get hit in the face. Controlled my temper like a champ. Super proud of myself.”
A day ago, Briefly.co.za reported that AKA had declared war on student debt and while some thought it was just talk, he has shown he means business.
Student debt is an issue that has plagued many graduates in South Africa and the struggle is real. AKA has announced a Fees Must Fall Mega Concert to help students who are battling with student debt.
Briefly.co.za discovered that the rapper has put his money where his mouth is in the past and donated R100 000 to a WITS university committee to assist with student debt.
