- A little while ago, AKA decided to try out something different - a new hairstyle
- But recently, the rapper was seen without the dreads and fans wondered why
- The rapper said it was just too heavy and made him sweat and some peeps are happy to see his 'old self'
Local rapper AKA thought he would try a new hairstyle and see what it feels like to wear dreads in the same style as American rapper Travis Scott.
He debuted the hair shortly before travelling to Malawi but a few days later he was done with it and returned to his more casual hairstyle.
AKA explained that the style was just too heavy for him and that it made him sweat more than he liked.
"(It was) Too heavy. Made my neck itch. Also made me sweat too much."
Of course, this did not go unnoticed by his fans.
The rapper's dreads got a mixed response from peeps when they first saw it. Briefly.co.za reported that the hairstyle is a hit with some and a miss with others.
It was definitely eye-catching and many tweeps were quick to compliment him.
However, now that their fave is back to his 'old self' peeps were more honest - it looks like many of them did not really like the look.
Meanwhile, the muso dished out some advice to his fans on what to do with advice from others.
He said if the person attempting to give you guidance isn't living the life you want for yourself, think twice.
While some people could see the wisdom in what he was trying to say, others weren't sold on the concept.
Fellow muso, Prince Kaybee, commented on AKA's advice. He said that although his mother wasn't rich, she gave him the best advice because she genuinely cared for and wanted him to succeed.
This is a sentiment shared by many other peeps.
