- AKA has shared that he cannot interview up and coming artists on The Braai Show for now
- AKA told a fan that people want to watch him interview famous people
- Social media users shared mixed opinions on the rapper's reply to the tweep
AKA has explained why he can't interview up and coming artists on The Braai Show. The rapper-turned-TV presenter took to social media a few days ago to explain to a fan why he only interviews famous people.
A fan, who watched the show for the first time recently, had asked Supa Mega on Twitter why he doesn't interview upcoming businesses and artists. The Fela In Versace hitmaker replied to the tweep:
"That would be great if perhaps we had more time on the show. Unfortunately right now all we have is 30mins an episode. So we have to use already established personalities because ultimately people want to watch me interview FAMOUS people."
AKA's fans took to his comment section to share their thoughts on his response to the tweep. Check out some of their comments below:
"It actually a good idea a well known celeb interviewing newcomers but for a different show maybe, am not saying it can’t be done at AKA’s show though."
"Let's be honest even if the show was an hour long we are not interested in AKA interviewing up and coming business people."
"Great response Forbes, you're a Genius man. A Living Legend. For me you're the Greatest to ever to do it. God Bless you Big Brother."
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that AKA's new TV show titled The Braai Show premiered on SABC 1 on Thursday, 12 November. The show managed to pull in over two million viewers during its debut. 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."
