AKA took to Instagram to confirm that he is not one of the many South African artists struggling during the coronavirus pandemic, however, that is not going to stop him from supporting them during this challenging time. 

In a Twitter post on Sunday, 19 July 2020, AKA responded to a Tweep who called him out for supporting struggling artists, despite mocking the under privileged in the past. Tarryn Daniels referenced AKA’s rant from last week which blamed the South African government for not helping musicians during the pandemic, who have not been able to earn a living due to the banning of live events.

Tarryn stated, “The same AKA was once asking ppl if they were enjoying their king pie while he eats his Lobster lunch ... now look.” The rapper quickly responded to the slam, confirming the fact that he is in fact surviving without a live gigs.

He replied with, “Sorry to break it to you, but I don’t depend on gigs to survive. I made my lamb stew with a nice Pinotage this evening. Now look at you.”

After his followers began lambasting him for once again showing off his privilege, AKA reiterated the fact that just because he’s not struggling, he still plans on using his platform to speak out for those who need help.
