Costa Tich has opened up about how Riky Rick saved his life. The award-winning rapper was a guest on AKA's SABC 1 show called The Braai Show.
The Areyeng hitmaker, who started out as a dancer, shared that Riky Rick helped him push his debut single Nkalakata. The star replied to AKA when he asked about his relationship with Riky:
"Honestly speaking he saved my life. I was at a point where if Nkalakata wasn’t a success, I didn’t know what would be."
Supa Mega and the Ungazincishi hitmaker both feature on the remix of Nkalakata. Costa Titch has also worked with the likes of Boity, Cassper Nyovest and DJ Maphorisa, among others. The musician also revealed that his first salary in the music was in the form of sneakers after dancing for Mufasa.
When Costa mentioned Cass' name, AKA hilariously said: "You cant say the C-word." He quickly told Costa that he was just joking.
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that AKA recently 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. One fan @MsweliTeddy said:
"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."
