Social Media was abuzz at the weekend after an upcoming rapper by the name of Big Xhosa came for all the South African rappers in a diss track.

What started this beef? No one really knows, but it's provocative.

The Xhosa rapper received mixed emotions for choosing violence in the hip hop game because fans have their faves and nobody would like a rapper who hates their favourite rapper.

Starting off his verse by letting Mzansi rappers know that he is not scared of them (except for Big Zulu) he then attacked Nasty C for always speaking English, and A-Reece's day-one fans were livid after their fave was called "baby girl".

The rapper - who claims to be 5 times better than 2 Pac - went on to diss Stogie T, Cassper Nyovest, Kwesta and many otherothers. However, when it came to AKA, Big Xhosa said he will hold off on his comment. This decison by the rapper had many Twitter users intrigued and others praising him for "reading the room."

Having lost his fiancé, Anele 'Nelli' Tembe, in a tragic manner two weeks go, AKA's fans, colleagues and friends have been sending messages of condolences and keeping him in their prayers during this tough period in his life. With everyone fully aware of the situation, it would have been rather insensitive for Big Xhosa to include Supa Mega in his beef and that is exactly why the rapper excluded him.

Whilst having lunch with controversial and outspoken artist manager Nota, Big Xhosa explained his decision to not diss AKA; citing him as one of his inspirations.

"By the way, why I did not mention Supa Mega. It's because he is going through what he is going through right now. And I'm not good with words, but I respect him. I respect him so much and I thought of giving him some space and leaving him alone. But also, he's one of the people I look up to, he's the one that actually got me into rapping."
Big Xhosa's decision won hearts on social media.
