In a series of tweets shared by South Africa fine boy rapper, AKA a few hours ago, the celebrated rapper appears to be officially over the long years of beef between himself and street credible rapper, Cassper Nyovest. According to AKA, seeing that this is 2017, he is tired of the beef and is reaching out to Cassper for them to headline Cassper’s record breaking annual  concert “Fill Up LNB”. See trending tweets shared by AKA:

On the reason for the sudden change of heart, AKA shared:

Cassper is however yet to respond to AKA’s tweets. You would recall that back in 2015, AKA in a chat with MTV revealed the reason behind he and Cassper’s beef.

He shared:

“He was coming up, I think it was around the Gusheshe time, and I’ve always looked out for new artists. We had even started to work on music together. One day I think he had put his video out or something, and the next day he went off about ‘I don’t have the support, no one is really holding me down, and I’m going to put this song out and show everybody.’ I think we kind of fell out, maybe because of things he said on Twitter as people do. I think it really escalated from there because, you know, once the lines were drawn he would say things and I would say things and the people around us would too, and it just gathered steam until the point where it’s been two years.”

AKA adds “Hip hop is all about flexing so it’s no surprise that in an art form based on competition and ego and confidence, that two egos won’t get along. When it comes to Cassper, maybe I’ve become a bit of a victim of my own success, but at the same when it’s time to go head-to-head, I don’t back down. I don’t back down from a challenge. I don’t view it as a distraction. I view it as ‘it is what it is”.

4 Days Till AKA Unveils His Plan for Bonang’s 30th Birthday

It’s 4 days to Queen B, Bonang Matheba’s 30th birthday and we cant wait to share the juicy details of how the South African media darling and her super mega boyfriend, AKA will be celebrating the new milestone.

Bonang is just as clueless as we are as to where and how the celebration will turn out, but she’s sure she is up for a treat of a lifetime courtesy of AKA.

In a chat with Drum Magazine South Africa she revealed that she will be “away”.” I will be away on the actual day. My boyfriend says he is taking me to New York but I will only know when I get the boarding pass where I am going,” said Bonang

She added that she usually doesn’t know where they are headed as her boyfriend just books the flight and accommodation and only tells her the weather where they are going for her to know what to pack. Did you just say how cool? Yes, we agree with you. Guess that’s one of the things being a queen B entails.

AKA has actually been spoiling Bonang silly since their relationship was made public. From Gucci bags, to surprise flowers at work and expensive vacations. Don’t get jealous ladies, just ask your guy to up his game.

AKA Fires Back at the Beyhive : I only recognise one Queen B and she was born in Africa

May 22, 2017

AKA has over time been an unapologetic anti-Beyhive, publicly airing his contrary views about what the Beyhive celebrate about their queen. This time, he  aired his views about Beyonce’s Africa themed baby shower that has been a big deal among the Beyhive and faced the wrath of Beyhive on Twitter.

In AKA’s view, the baby shower stinks of cultural appropriation

He calls the Beyhive brainwashed, saying Francoise Pienaar is more African than Beyonce

Regardless of their racist comments that Beyonce is more African than him because he is coloured, he fired back at them, placing his girlfriend, Bonang Matheba  above Beyonce as the only Queen B he recognizes

The Beyhive still had one more shot to fire at AKA

Cassper Calls Reconciliation with AKA a Publicity Stunt

May 8, 2017

I am tempted to ask – is there anything celebrities cannot do to pull a publicity stunt?

Cassper released his third album – Thuto over the course of the weekend and made a shocking revelation during his interview with Metro FM’s DJ Fresh at the launch. He revealed that the hug that himself and fellow rapper, AKA shared after his Fill Up Orlando gig which signalled an end to their long standing beef to fans and the media was a calculated PR exercise staged by AKA, and  he just played along.

“I say on the album n***ars ask for forgiveness in public just for thev PR. It was a well calculated move. In the morning I saw the tweets and I already knew what was going on. He wanted to come take picture so everyone could see. I acted stupid but I knew what was going on so I smiled. I let people play whatever they want to play. If you want to be fake, then do it. If it was genuine that we were cool, then we would have still been cool now because I still haven’t done anything wrong. But if you have a bitter heart it will come out, you will tweet these things” said Cassper

Cassper added that he would never work with AKA as it is like making a child together.  So beef season was never over, as always, fans are the media are the audience.

DJ Zinhle Responds to Critics on Hiding her Daughter, Kairo on Social Media

Shortly after her relationship went sour with South African rapper, AKA (the father of her daughter), DJ Zinhle decided to protect her daughter’s identity on social media by hiding her face in every picture or video she posted on social media.

Her child protection on social media decision has however not been quite successful, as AKAh as continued to reveal the identity of his daughter on his social media inspite of DJ Zinhle’s decision.

Zinhle came under attack today on social media when she posted yet another picture of Kairo and covered her face with an Instagram like badge. Some of her followers who felt the protection was strange or uncalled for criticized her.

Two of the critics wrote…

“It is strange that you are suddenly hiding her face”

 “Why post a picture of your child if you won’t show their face? Just don’t post if you are ‘protecting’ your child. There is nothing interesting about seeing her body”

DJ Zinhle wouldn’t have anyone school her on her choices for her child, so she responded without mincing her words “I can do whatever I want. This is my page and she is my child. Hope that’s okay with you”
