AKA is one of the loudest and proudest Manchester United fans in Mzansi. The rapper even has a tattoo of the team emblem on his shoulder. Unfortunately, his team has been performing poorly in recent days.
The artist was driven to tears after they squandered an opportunity to make it into the Europa League final.
Manchester United lost to Sevilla on Sunday evening, 16 August. This loss brought an end to their campaign of trying to secure the Europa League trophy. This extends the team's trophy-less drought to three years.
AKA took to Twitter to voice his frustrations about the soccer team. In a series of tweets, the rapper expressed his concerns. He said:
"I have seen this club win 2 European Cups in my lifetime ... I fear Kairo might be 25 by the time we win our next one."
"I’ve only shed actual tears over United 3 times in my life ... 2008 UCL final, last day of EPL Aguero ... and tonight. These guys really hurt me."
Twitter user Cellular_ZA said:
"Football will kill you my friend... Last night it was me, tonight is you."
"You're really devoted to this team ne Mega."
"I understand the first two set of tears, under Sir Alex, these bunch of losers, in @MbalulaFikile's words, do not deserve tears."
"You’re not alone bro."
"I always thank God I didn't watch the Aguero goal cause I would've had an ugly cry and still be traumatised."

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that AKA has been championing for the rights of those who work in the alcohol industry, which stood to lose hundreds of thousands of jobs due to the lockdown restrictions.
South Africa has taken a tremendous beating economically under the Covid-19 lockdown. AKA has his own stake in the alcohol industry with his endorsement of Cruz Vodka, which he signed in 2016.
He was also hurt financially by the lockdown with not being able to tour or sell his product. He is thrilled now that lockdown has been lifted to Level 2 and alcohol sales have resumed.
AKA's fans reacted to the news that his vodka is going back on sale.
