AKA is no stranger to the luxuries of the high life now, being one of South Africa's most successful artists, but fans were excited to be reminded of his humble beginnings.
Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, whose stage name is AKA, had all his fans adding their comments about Mitchell's Plain and sharing the love on the post:
@trissebastianblack: "The king of SA hiphop"

@jos.alimasi: "There's no place like home"

In other news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on AKA's comments about not needing the support of other celebrities. SAHipHopMag quoted how AKA is not interested in things like parties and events to garner favour. The rapper was pretty vocal about not needing to be part of the so-called 'celebrity clique' and then dubbed himself the "anti-celebrity".
Some thought AKA was just being extra, but others thought it was the rapper's attempt to distance himself from the current conversation happening online about celebs using their connections instead of their talents.
From what it seems, AKA is not bothered about being part of celebrity-culture because, as far as he's concerned, he is celebrity-culture and it's on lock.
