JR takes sides in the AKA/ Cassper Nyovest feud
This is one fight that just won't go away! Caasper Nyovest, and their respective fans, are still feuding over who has the biggest single on radio and it seems the argument is slowly splitting local Hip Hop.
Only two weeks ago Slikour was told to metaphorically "sit down and shut up " by AKA, after the hip hop artist attempted to bring a peaceful resolution to the fight. Now another hip hop muso, JR, has got involved
Posting to the Mediaguide South Africa chart, which monitors 48 radio stations and 8 Television stations airplay in the country, AKA wrote, in a clear dig to Casper, "It saddens me that people are not judged on the caliber of their music but on who they are".
Apparently, the abusive comments which followed the post , one of which accused AKA of paying DJ's to play his song, were too much for JR who replied "Nice! The problem with people on social media is that they are under the impression that they count as the majority when they actually count for like 8.5% of the population. Hits are for the masses. BASIC business principle is "supply the demand" whether it be Caracara, Doc Shebeleza, Hape le hapeetc the masses will respond to the HIT! and radio will be forced to play it"
JR then screenshot the comments and his response and stuck them on instagram.
