- AKA took to social media to share his doubts about Covid-19 and ask for proof that the virus can be spread by people not showing symptoms
- The rapper's take asked his followers if asymptomatic carriers of the virus sounded logical or like common sense
- Tweeps immediately dragged AKA for being uninformed and said that his misunderstanding of how the virus works had no bearing on its existence
AKA recently took to Twitter to share his personal feelings and thoughts about the Covid-19 pandemic and the virus itself.
He posted a tweet that asked for proof that the virus can be transmitted by a person who is asymptomatic or does not present the usual signs.The rapper implied that it was not logical to think that it could.
Tweeps immediately started dragging the uniformed take and responded with a variety of replies, including that a virus did not have to make sense to AKA in order to continue to exist.
AKA's tweet read:
"Where is the PROOF that someone can infect another person with a deadly virus without showing ANY symptoms of the virus that they are carrying? Does that even make sense? How does that even sound logical?"
Twitter users responded by explaining to the rapper that his personal logic has no bearing on a virus and that if he wanted proof so badly, he should read the published scientific studies on the evidence of how Covid-19 acts.
One user added that AKA not having seen the proof did not mean the proof was not there and wrote:
@jasperlionel: "There is lots of scientific literature on this. You need to read it or get someone to explain it to you if you can’t do it yourself."
Other users said that the rapper was clearly uninformed and had no expertise in the fields of science, medicine, virology or epidemiology, so his tweet doubting the experts meant nothing coming from a musician:
@errolbsk: "Study the right field and these things will make sense. Being a musician doesn't equip you to understand such things."
@ChechengweM: "Can we please talk music and leave Science and Health matters to those who have an understanding"
@nickhedley: "Come on man get your shit together"
Others took the opportunity to get some laughs in and add comedy to the situation.

@Bonisile_RMS: "Let me put it in a way you would understand; Remember that time you were infected with a Reebok deal even though you had no symptoms of getting a payment? Basically the same thing."
@Zwandid:"When reporting a tweet like this, why don’t they have an option for “it’s just so damn stupid”."
