AKA has received a lot of criticism in the past for using autotune when singing some of his own songs.
The rapper took to social media to prove to some of his critics that he can hold a note just like his dad's favourite artist, Lionel Richie.
The star shared a video of himself belting out one of his dad's fave songs titled Sail On by Lionel Richie.
In the video, he can be heard saying:
"This is one of my dad's favourite songs. I'm so excited, midnight, new music."

Peeps who were surprised that AKA can sing so beautifully without the audio effect have encouraged him to ditch it and continue using his natural voice.
"The first time I actually hear your voice man. You gotta keep it real. Divorce auto tune and switch to manual transmission."
"And it's one of my favourite songs too... Love Lionel Richie. Now I'm more excited about the new songs. Let's go midnight."
"That is a beautiful voice man, no autotune."
"Mmmh wish we can get that voice more..."
Briefly.co.za has reported that the star has dropped three new tracks at the same time on Friday midnight. The singles are titled Energy, Cross My Heart and Monuments.
AKA has also apologised to media personality Sizwe Dhlomo and his family after their recent twar.
