- AKA has taken to Twitter to declare that he credits himself with coining the term "Tsipibians", which is how Cassper Nyovest's fans refer to themselves
- AKA and Cassper famously have 'beef' with each other and tend to diss each other on Twitter so fans were sceptical
- Tweeps weighed in on the claim from both sides of the debate between two of SA's most famous artists
AKA took to Twitter to chat about his influence in the hip hop space and then decided to reveal that he credits himself with naming the group of Cassper's fans who go by "Tsipibians".
The theme of naming artists' dedicated fans has been a steady one since the advent of social media. Justin Bieber's go by "Beliebers", Nasty C has his "Ivysons" and AKA the "Bhovamanias".
Supa Mega was chatting to tweeps online when he declared that he "...actually created the term “tsipibians” tbh." Fans chimed in as to whether that was true or not, but AKA tweeted it.
Some said AKA was giving himself too much credit and that the fans co-opted the name and turned it into something positive:
@OwThriNan_O39: "Fake news! You used it to mock and the BIG DOGS turned everything into LEMONADE"
Others said that he was telling the truth and that they back his version:
@LFxjourney: "Yep! We know Mega!"
In other AKA-related news, Briefly.co.za recently reported that his baby mama, DJ Zinhle has been making some boss moves lately.
Briefly.co.za received the press release detailing DJ Zinhle's new CEO position along with her acquisition of equity in Boulevard Rosé.
Boulevard Nectar Rosé is a sparkling wine produced in France which comes packaged in a signature black bottle. The elegance of the brand pairs perfectly with the empire that DJ Zinhle has already started building.
Zinhle Jiyane already has an impressive list behind her name, including being a mom and a businesswoman, but now she gets to add CEO to the list.
A positive ripple effect from the news was how many tweeps were supportive of DJ Zinhle creating generational wealth and securing the bag, as well as being inspired by it. Tweeps all sent love, support and admiration for the artist and wished her the best of luck on her new venture.
