- Businessman Kenny Kunene has been roasted for his rap skills
- He posted a video on social media recording a rap song about the coronavirus
- Social media users and celebrities were in stitches after listening to the Sushi King rap
The current 21-day lockdown has seen some of South Africa's bored citizens do anything for clout on social media.
One such person is businessman Kenny Kunene. Kenny has taken to social media to flex his rapping skills.
The Sushi King posted a video of himself in a recording studio while lacing a "positive" verse about how to stay safe from Covid-19.
In the song, Kenny asks South Africans to quarantine, wash their hands, stay at home and to practice social distancing.
But just like billionaire rapper Jay-Z once rapped that "opposites attract like a magnet", Kenny's "positive" song has attracted a lot of negativity on social media.
Social media users were in stitches after analysing Kenny's lyrical content and delivery in the song.
Some sarcastically compared him to hip-hop's greatest lyricists such as Eminem, Busta Rhymes and Jay-Z.
Even Mzansi's celebrities were not impressed.
Khanyi Mbau commented:
"Jay Z is trembling sir."
Nkanyezi Kubheka wrote:
"Eminem was found shaking."
DJ Zinhle said:
"Babe. I laughed so hard. Wow."
Some tweeps did not beat about the bush but told Kenny straight up that he is too old for rap.
"Enters the man child."
"Kenny, we're dealing with too many problems right as a country, please stay forgotten if you're not gonna be serious."
"Hawa malume Kenny, delete this before people see it."
Briefly.co.za came across only one user who seemed to support Kenny.
"Come on guys, this was meant to further spread the message not y’all coming on here and judging Kenny The MC!"
