- AKA has been supportive of the idea of working with African artists for years
- The rapper has done collaborations with many and always advocated for a united Africa
- Things went south after a tweet of his was taken the wrong way and Supa Mega feels it's all really unfortunate and 'lame'
Local rapper AKA and Nigerian artists (and music fans) have been in a 'beef' of sorts that he never asked for.
A tweet about football got taken out of context and people took it personally, with even muso Burna Boy getting involved.
Soon, a lot of hate was flung back and forth between SA and Nigeria on social media, and it went as far as causing the cancellation of a concert.
AKA's fans have since been pushing him to try and make peace and sort things out, and he agrees that the whole thing is unfortunate.
In fact, Supa Mega got upset by a photo of him and Nigerian music star Davido. AKA isn't happy that it "all went down the drain over bull".
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that AKA did try to reach out and make peace. However, that did not go as planned or hoped.
It's clear that AKA doesn't want the relationship between South Africa and Nigeria to be so strained, but it takes two to tango.
Fans can only hope that all those involved will be able to move on and find peace, perhaps even friendship again in the future.
