AKA blasts fellow SA rappers on Twitter... and then asks fans to vote for him

Cape Town – Notoriously vocal rapper AKA can’t seem to lay off provoking his peers on social media.

The popular rapper who just recently buried the hatchet with Cassper Nyovest, is at it again.

This time around he’s taking on all South African rappers.

AKA went on a Twitter rant earlier on Tuesday in which he dissed all SA rappers. From the contents of his tweets it seems that he had been compared to other rappers which triggered the outburst.

He later apologised to his fans and asked them to vote for him in the annual Metro FM Music Awards in which he picked up six nominations.

AKA is currently in Lagos where he is set to perform as the headline act for the weekly Industry Night session. The rapper postponed his trip earlier due to visa issues.

More stamps in my passport. Bad news like tabloids. #LAGOS
