- The controversial rapper posted the tweet announcing his retirement on Friday, 31 July 2020

AKA is once again hogging the headlines after he took to social media to announce that he is retiring from hip hop.
His seemingly sudden decision was shared online on Friday afternoon.
The Fela in Versace hitmaker took to Twitter and wrote:
"I AM OFFICIALLY RETIRED FROM SA HIP HOP. YOU WILL NOW ADDRESS ME AS KIERNAN JARRYD JUSTIN BIEBER. Please & Thank You"
Knowing the rapper's stunts and how he says and does a lot of things for attention, nobody really took him seriously.
The rapper further explained that he was too mainstream and his music was beyond hip hop. He said:
"Year after I year I compete on the charts against the best that this cowntry has to offer ... DOESN'T MATTER WHAT GENRE. SA Hip Hop I’m sorry, but it’s official ... I RETIRE. I kiss you on your forehead. I’m too mainstream, I’m too Supa Mass Mega"
His post was met with amusing responses from Mzansi social media users. Twitter Manyangatsii said:
"You’re on your marketing stunts again"
"Now you want to abuse the autotune"
"Cassper is about releasing album wena you are retiring like whats up"
"We've heard this before seun"
"You just saved SA Hip-Hop"
It seems AKA needs to come up with something else to get people's attention.
