- AKA took to social media to respond to some tweets that were hating on his latest work, Bhovamania
- Supa Mega did not seem to mind the hate as much as he minded the people spewing it pretending to be part of the 'Megacy'
- The responses to AKA's replies varied as some added their undying support and others not so much
AKA has taken to social media to clap back at some haters. Being a public figure does open one up to all kinds of internet scrutiny, but that isn't what seemed to annoy the rapper about the tweets.
AKA responded to haters who claimed to be fans. Supa Mega thought that the haters were pretending to be fans and disguising their hate as constructive criticism.
The comments section ended up in debate, with some arguing why fans can't criticise artists and others saying haters shouldn't pretend to be fans in the first place.
AKA's one response got over 150 likes and it was a simple:
"You ain't Megacy, stop lying."
He then also tweeted out:
"When I become President in 2024, impersonating a member of the Megacy will be a criminal offence."
The responses divided tweeps:
@JoeMalesa: "So being Megacy means agreeing with you at all times? Hectic."
@BlessingLalah: "Fans from the other side should really learn to stay humble and respect the king of SA hip hop, AKA."
@Tantie_22: "do artists even consider negative feedback from their fans? It hits a die hard fan harder when their fav starts falling off"
@msiyana123456: "@akaworldwide: Megacy in 2024 will be lining up to vote. We gonna run South Africa politically now because musically we have no competition."
The show's first episode saw AKA interview flamboyant politician Fikile Mbalula. Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela took to Twitter on Wednesday, 18 November to share that the programme pulled in a whopping 2.8 million viewers. Phil posted:
"The Braai Show with AKA started airing on SABC1 on Thurs, November 12th at 19h30 — pulling in 2.8 million viewers in its very first episode. Making it the 13th most-watched programme on the channel and 18th in South Africa."
Phil further explained that if the show retains its viewership, it will make the musician the second-highest-rated talk show host in Mzansi. He added:
"If the show retains the 2.8 million viewers or pulls higher, it will likely fall behind Nyan Nyan in terms of most-watched talk shows in South Africa."
Social media users have shared mixed reactions to AKA's show doing very well in terms of viewership. Check out some of their comments below:

@Tumi_MrsL said: "SABC 1 seems to be having dope shows these days but not putting them on Catch Up is really messing us up."
