- AKA is not feeling the recent social media campaign for female empowerment
- The movement known as #ChallengeAccepted involves posting black and white selfies and tagging other women
- AKA trolled the hashtag by posting a picture and pretending that he had been tagged by Oprah Winfrey
AKA is either really bored or he enjoys ruffling feathers. The rapper took to social media to mock a recent trend called #ChallengeAccepted.
This trend sees women post black and white photos of themselves to promote female empowerment.
In the challenge, women post the pics and then challenge other women to join. The rapper used the campaign as an opportunity to joke around. He took to Instagram and posted a black and white picture of himself.
He captioned the photo with a generic caption:
"#ChallengeAccepted ... “Don’t let someone dim your light, simply because it’s shining in their eyes” ... @oprah Thanks for the nomination. I nominate @beyonce @savagexfenty @kyliejenner"
He claimed Oprah challenged him and he nominated Bey, Rihanna and Kylie Jenner to post their photos. His fans were in stitches over his stunt. Instagram user bebe_gayerh said:
"Yess wena moghel"
"Who nominated you?"
"The homie is looking younger and hotter and fresher and foiner in the middle-centre of a whole global pandemic. Aka-naRespect lotata!"
"Lol. Ave unesdina wena (You're so annoying)."
Other famous faces who have participated in the challenge include Minnie Dlamini, Simphiwe Dana and Dineo Langa.
In other AKA news, the rapper took to social media and shared that he has recovered from the novel coronavirus. He detailed his recovery journey and thanked his girlfriend Nelli Tembe for her support during his illness.
The rapper took to Instagram to post a video of himself dancing and looking full of life. He had announced that he tested positive for Covid-19 just a few days prior. He shared a timeline showing 14 days of recovery from the day of his diagnosis.
Many social media users remained suspicious about his speedy recovery and even questioned his initial diagnosis. Briefly.co.za also learned that the rapper would be making money from his ordeal in the form of a TV show.
