The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) said in a statement that the Sunday Sun’s report about the alleged intervention was “utter nonsense and pure lies”.
The publication added that the EFF’s commander-in-chief told the crowd that AKA and Cassper’s beef was a complete waste of time, and they should rather focus their energy on fighting for more important things like land.
Cassper allegedly confirmed the intervention to the Sunday Sun. He was quoted as saying that he was done beefing and was focusing on his #FillUpTheDome concert.
But the EFF denied that Malema met with the rappers, or had any discussion about their work before or after their performances.
“Instead he made students understand that within the history of Kwaito and hip-hop there is always a competitiveness between leading artists. He gave examples of Tupac and Biggie Smalls. He then said we must support them both, because both are making us proud being black brothers with their success and impact in the music industry.”
