Meanwhile Briefly.co.za reported that AKA's SABC 1 show titled The Braai Show has been kicked off the channel's Top 10 most-watched shows. The programme hit a slump in January 2021 after doing very well over the previous few months.

The rapper-turned-TV presenter hosted Robert Marawa, Laduma and Prince Kaybee in January. None of those episodes pulled enough viewers to make it onto the list of Top 10 SABC 1 shows. Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela wrote on Twitter recently:

"TV: The Braai Show With AKA off SABC1 Top 10. The show, with a decently performing season, hit a slump in January when none of its episodes pulled enough viewers to crack the Top 10. January guests Prince KB, Laduma & Robert Marawa pulled below 2.5-mil."

Social media users have shared mixed reactions to the show hitting a slump last month. Check out some of their comments below:

"The show is wack, I accidentally saw the Robert Marawa one, AKA is the worst interviewer ever, boring."

@It_is_Just_Dave said:

"He cuts people off while they are still talking, which is very bad coz in order to be a good interviewer you must be a good listener."

@TheHipHopMayor commented:

"In this case I think problem ke host, guests were interesting but the host wasn't asking those hard-hitting and creative questions that will get you glued to the screen. Anyways, in my opinion."

@PrimroseMalaza said:

"I think this was a good show concept, maybe try on another channel at a different time?"

@Nthabi_moka2 added:

"I always forget to watch it, the contributing factor for me is I'm always between channel 194 (Scandal) and 161 (Gomora)."
