AKA wants more local songs in the air

AkaAKA is notorious for voicing his opinion on Twitter and this week was no different. The rapper tweeted at South African Airways asking them why their on-board playlist does not consist of 100% local music. See the tweet here:

To which the airline replied that they would take his suggestion into consideration. Which is basically code for “pipe down and listen to your own music.”

His fans had a field day with this tweet, some on his side but some saying he was being too sensitive and even some poking fun at his music accusing him of autotune.

See some of the best reactions here:

AKA and Bonang’s relationship comes back to bite them

akaLast night Being Bonang made its debut on Mzansi Magic and fans were raving about it like they had never seen it before, although some might have not since it’s arrival to Mzansi Magic. Tweeps were so excited about the show that they even got it trending at number one on the Twitter trends list. Besides everyone being obsessed with the show, there was one subject that kept creeping up in most of the tweets that left people devastated- Bonang and AKA’s relationship. Seeing as the first season was filmed while the two were still in a relationship a lot of people were left in all of their feels revisiting the time when the couple was still happy.

TBH, it was a little too much for some fans who even wished they had a “delete this scene” button on their remotes to take AKA out of the equation. Tweeps took to social media to share how they were left feeling:


It seems a lot of fans can sometimes get a little too invested in stars relationships, but we have to admit, when the couple was good, they were good!

RIP to them.

Tumi Morake, literally, snatched her own wig on live TV

On Monday night Tumi Morake did the unthinkable when she hosted AKA on her late-night show, WTF Tumi.

Tumi Morake

The former Our Perfect Wedding host removed her wig on live television, saying: “…you don’t have to wait two years to see me without my wig!”

Tumi was referring to the lyrics in AKA’s diss track, Beyonce, where he refers to waiting two years to see his then-girlfriend, Bonang, without a wig. As Morake, essentially, snatched her own wig, she also mentioned that she wants to be a part of the AKA fan club known as the ‘Megacy.’

This act of solidarity towards AKA comes as no surprise, as Tumi’s beef with ‘Your Girl B’ has been well documented.

Peep the receipts here…

AKA to spill the tea on WTF Tumi

akaNow that AKA has dropped his brand new album the next step would be is to go on a press tour right? So be prepared to see his face and hear his voice on multiple radio stations and talk shows. But his latest appearance has a funny twist to it. He has been confirmed as this Monday’s guest for WTF Tumi.


Usually, we wouldn’t bat an eyelid over this but considering just last week his ex-boo, Bonang Matheba made the news for declining an appearance from this very show on social media, it seems quite ironic. The reason for her decline was because her fans lead on that they would tear her apart and haven’t ever been very nice about Queen B, so it seems very convenient that her ex will now be on that very same show. The next best thing maybe?
Adding even more fuel to the fire the episode will air the exact same night as Bonang’s appearance on Real Talk on 3. We suspect ratings will be through the roof, if anything.
