AKA has explained why he apologised to Sizwe Dhlomo and his family following their feud on social media.
The rapper had suggested that Sizwe's grandfather, Isaac Dhlomo, was a snitch during apartheid.
AKA admitted that he used the twar with the media personality to promote his three songs that he dropped last Friday.
"Yes I did use it to promote the drops... But at the expense of my own principles."
The three singles, Energy, Monuments and Cross My Hear, shot straight to the top of the online music charts when he dropped them on Friday.

One tweep thought AKA was paid to offer the apology but the Baddest hitmaker reiterated that he did it of his own accord.
"I did it of my own accord... no lawyers... no fear... just a disappointment in myself that I had insulted the very same movement that delivered my freedom."
Another tweep suggested that AKA was getting soft, that's why he offered the apology.
The rapper disputed that and said he did some research about Sizwe's grandfather's role in the struggle.
"I had to educate myself about Issac Dhlomo, who he was, and what he did... after that I couldn’t let it slide. I had to apologise."
