AKA has taken to social media to share his views on celebrities who don't support ordinary South Africans. The rapper was responding to a fan who slammed some celebs for not supporting the struggles of ordinary people.
Supa Mega admitted that some of his peers in the entertainment industry do not support other people. He also revealed that there are quite a few who do.
"Yes a lot do not ... but there are quite a few who do. In fact, there are many things done in absolute silence with no expectation of any sort of credit."
Mega also expressed that entertainers get blamed for not doing anything when something goes wrong in Mzansi.
"The first people to get blamed for not 'doing anything' when some sh*t goes wrong in the country is always “celebrities” … so maybe celebrities should be your ministers, presidents, premiers and figures in positions of POLITICAL power since you love holding them accountable."
Social media users took to AKA's comment section to share their views on his post. Check out some of the comments below:
"Maybe if they stop trying to influence masses in elections, choosing sides or keeping silent against oppression instead of using their platforms to speak out against inhuman treatment then we would stop but as long as you are used and allow yourself to be bought as a mascot will stop."
"Only on social media, no responsible grown up is waiting for celebs to bring the answers in real life."
"Good point they get called out only only social media. I mean there is more activity on social than real life."
"It's because politicians use you for campaigns and gathering of votes, you sell your own people for a mere payment, you people have great influence that's why politicians use u, and if you can start a campaign to fight the government you will definitely make an impact, but you don't!"
