AKA has taken to social media to celebrate the success of his two singles titled Cross My Heart and Energy. According to the Radiomonitor's latest South African radio airplay chart - from 24 to 30 July - AKA's songs are on the top 20 of the most played songs in the country.
Radiomonitor is a London based company that provides music airplay data, media capture and media delivery to the music and broadcast industries, PR and government.
Cross My Heart is charting at number 6 while Energy, featuring Gemini Major, is sitting comfortably at number 14. The rapper took to Instagram and shared the latest Radiomonitor statistics to his followers. He captioned the post:
"Eat my dust."
AKA also used the post to throw shade at his arch-rival Cassper Nyovest. He mentioned Cass' favourite line on the post. He sarcastically wrote:
Cassper says "ke hip-hop doggo" in most of his new songs. Not even a single track of Cassper's is on the top 20. The only song that he appears in is at number 27. The song belongs to Kabza De Small. Kabza features Cass, Burna Boy, Madumane and Wizkid. AKA and Cassper will be going up against each other in a boxing match later this year.

In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that 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.
