AKA’s comments which he made back in July after SA lost to Nigeria in the Nations Cup are the reason for the uproar and boycott against the “Jika” hit-marker by Nigerian musicians.
While this has been unfolding, local rappers like Reason, Maraza, Rouge, JR, L-Tido and more defended the Mega saying his comments are being taken out of context.
Context Ice, everything was taken out of context. I personally don’t know any SA musician post 2000 who has supported and respected NGR entertainment as much as AKA. Through videos, features, narrative and has always been very vocal. https://t.co/nBbM8RhUCn
