AKA has taken to social media to claim that he has never "bitten" anyone's song or style - at least for over a decade. The confident rapper told tweeps on Twitter that his "artistic integrity is unmatched". He boastfully expressed that not even one song of his "sounds like" anyone else's in Mzansi.
"I have gone over a decade without biting anyone or anyone’s style. My artistic integrity is unmatched."
Supa Mega went on to challenge social media users to name one song from his entire catalogue that sounds copied from anyone else's song.
Mzansi has shared mixed reactions to the rapper's claims. Some tweeps even went on to say that sampling and copying someone's song is the same thing. Many of AKA's songs are sampled from classic house songs.
"I know we only call them samples when its you... but when it's someone else it's copying..."
"Aaah but your flow on Run Jozi was from that Versace Versace song, I don’t know by who."
" 'Sweet Fire copied from 'Good Life' by Kanye West. God, in fact the whole inspiration came from that. I mean you never dropped a song that's never existed before, either a beat or verse, you are good at recycling."
"Sampling is like copying bro, enjoy your success and stop being slick."
"Bro your talent is unique, you have never tried to sound like someone else. I remember when you released Victory Lap, it inspired me to find my own style and not try to be someone else."
In other Mzansi music news, Briefly.co.za reported that Kabza De Small has hinted that he wants to drop another project. The Amapiano music producer recently took to social media to ask his fans if he should drop the new project or wait for a while.

Mzansi tweeps have flooded his comment section with mixed reactions since he posted about the new project on Monday, 8 September. Many social media users have shared that he must wait a bit because they're still enjoying the last project, titled I Am The King Of Amapiano: Sweet and Dust.
