- The Fela In Versace rapper took to social media offer the fan a new phone as a token of appreciation
- Supa Mega is nominated in the tightly-contested Record Of The Year and Video Of The Year categories for his smash hit Jika
AKA has taken to social media to offer to buy a new phone to one of his fans who has been voting for the star to take home at least one award at this year's SAMAs.
The loyal tweep, @bantu_bhungane, made a video showcasing the number of times he has voted for Supa Mega to win in the prestigious South African Music Awards (SAMAs). He also encouraged other fans to vote for the muso.
The rapper has been nominated in the Record Of The Year and the Video Of The Year categories for his smash hit titled Jika. Both the categories are voted for by the fans.
@bantu_bhungane's video caught the Fela In Versace hitmaker's attention. The phone that AKA's fan used looked old but it is in good working condition.
AKA noticed this and offered to buy the stan a new phone as a token of appreciation for voting for him. Mega responded to @bantu_bhungane:
"Your phone has seen better days. Dm your bank details there broer."
In other news related to the SAMAs, Briefly.co.za reported that AKA's arch-rival Cassper Nyovest recently continued to blast the SAMAs after his artist Nadia Nakai was not nominated in the Best Hip Hop Album category.
The Amademoni hitmaker has advised artists who were snubbed by the SAMAs to rather focus on winning new fans than taking home new awards.
"My advice to everyone who didn't get nominated and feels cheated: a strong fan base is way more valuable than a full cabinet. They love you when you are new and then they find a replacement when you dominate too much."
Mzansi stars including Matorokisi hitmaker Makhadzi, Nadia and R&B sensation Ayanda Jiya have all taken to social media to complain about not being nominated for this year's ceremony.
Mufasa emphasised that musicians don't need recognition from the SAMAs in order to succeed in the industry.
