- Sizwe Dhlomo has defended AKA after the rapper revealed he received nothing from Reebok his Supa Mega sneaker
- Sizwe said AKA is an "awful businessman"
- However, the presenter made sure to include that he believes AKA's talent is second to none
Sizwe Dhlomo has come out in defence of AKA's talent after it was revealed that the rapper accepted a raw deal from Reebok regarding his Supa Mega sneaker.
AKA trended for not receiving a cent from Reebok for the deal.
Sizwe came out guns blazing against tweeps who were trying to come for AKA's authenticity as an artist.
When a tweep called AKA a "fraud," Sizwe responded, "He's not a fraud. He's one of the most talented musicians SA has ever seen, but he's an awful businessperson and his story regarding his career earnings and what's due to him is tragic."
Sizwe then implied that there are other deals of AKA's that have gone South that the world doesn't know about.
He tweeted, "The one deal is what (Mzansi) knows. I'm talking about what I know."
Sizwe said he's open to advising AKA on future brand collaborations and business.
He said, "There's no business we can do together but, I've got love for the dude and where I could, I've always advised him. He knows my door is always open. Just like anyone else."
The media personality agreed with a tweep who said all artists should stop negotiating deals from a place of desperation and always ensure that they have good lawyers on standby.
This week, Briefly.co.za reported that AKA had opened up about not receiving any money for his sneaker collaboration with Reebok.
The revelation led to #ReebokMustFall trending yesterday.
