Yanga Chief has opened up about being one of the poorest rappers in the Mzansi hip-hop scene.
The Eastern Cape born rapper told social media users who had accused him of being privileged that he has never had it easy since he moved to Jozi a few years back.
The Utatakho hitmaker told tweeps who were participating in the hashtag #PutSouthAfricaFirst that everyone knows that he is a broke rapper.
One tweep, @ZuluMoneyZN, accused Yanga of asking "unnecessary" questions because he was privileged.
"Hayibo, privilege ndiyithathe phi ngoku (where do I get it now)? Kunini kusithwa ndiyi (For how long has it been mentioned that I'm a) broke rapper."
Another tweep, @GLtoodope, accused Yanga of acting confused while he was well off from the bookings and the money he gets from being featured on other artists'songs.
@GLtoodope also said guys such as Yanga had it easy because they lived in Bryanston not Hillbrow. Bryanston is an affluent residential suburb of Sandton.
Yanga explained that he stayed in town for years before he relocated to the burbs.
"I stayed in town for years I think I’m familiar enough with Hillbrow. Chances are you’ve never been as poor as me but Ndiyathola uba uzishaya nge retweets but okhoweyi Joe (I understand that you're chasing retweets)."

The rapper said he cannot even do giveaways or donate to good causes because of his money woes.
