South African rapper, AKA, has resurfaced on the streets of social media, but the song he chose as part of his ‘comeback’ couldn’t have been a worse choice. Was it toasting to irony, an invitation for people to attack, or just an insensitive decision? People have their own theories in light of the aforementioned.
AKA’s recent behaviour has people suggesting that he is returning to his old self by getting a new puppy (Mr Lou, or King Louie the 13th), or playing basketball with some children in Mitchells Plain.
However, just when the internet was under the impression that there wasn’t a need to attack AKA on any of those matters, Kiernan Forbes went and shot himself in the foot.
AKA decided to post a video of himself smoking on his Instagram Story, with an incredibly questionable song choice, Travis Scott’s Piss on Your Grave.
Considering that AKA just lost his fiancé in April, along with all the media controversy surrounding allegations of his involvement in her death, many regarded the song to be highly insensitive.
What the hell is wrong with AKA

AKA was playing piss on your grave out of all songs, it’s a banger sure, but surely he knew people will analyse it differently

In other news, AKA is rumoured to be back in the studio.
@RubuThulisa, an account with an audience of 24.4 K followers, announced that Kiernan had some fire in store for the ‘Megacy’ (AKA’s fan base).
The ‘announcement’ was retweeted by @OscarMbo, who also alluded to the fire status of the EP, saying that he was tempted to share it on his Instagram story.

It seems like there will always be two opposing forces when it comes to AKA, the #muters and the #megacy, but AKA seems to be juggling both.
