Sizwe shared a tweet which called for alcohol to be banned due to the increase in abuse from South African men. 

AKA probed Sizwe by responding to his tweet, claiming that his business with Cruz Vodka was one of his remaining sources of income since shows have been cancelled due to the pandemic. 

A few hours later, Sizwe responded back with, “Sell watermelon juice B.”, causing tweeps to wait in anticipation for AKA’s expectant rebuttal. 


It seems the two are always at loggerheads and will never get along. AKA said something on Twitter and Sizwe Dlomo did not take kind to it.



Sizwe Dhlomo made it very clear to AKA that he will "f**k" him up for free, there isn't any need for a contract. This is after Super Mega threw some jabs at Sizwe Dhlomo.

As many suspected, AKA did not stop poking fun at Sizwe Dhlomo, but there was a surprising turn of events to the whole saga.

AKA seems to have had a change of heart and he issued out an apology to all those offended by his tweets.

"After educating myself properly about the sacrifices made by Sizwe’s grandfather and others close to him, I realize how reckless and stupid that was," tweeted the rapper.



Some people commended the rapper for his apology, whilst some pointed out that this was a classic move from the rapper to do something wrong and then apologize. AKA even mentioned that he had ironed out issues with Sizwe Dlomo, but Sizwe Dlomo did not respond to anything
