The South African music industry is a very twisted place. You always hear the wildest stories about it, sometimes from the most unexpected people.
The latest person to spill some good-good on the nature of the industry is Durban's own Tellaman. In a post meant to congratulate his fellow Durbanite/rapper Nasty C, he mentioned a spicy tidbit which got fans of a certain artist in their feels.
We never talk about plaques but if this album gets you one, I pray I don’t see copies stacked up in your garage. All the best brozay 🙏🏾 I love you.. https://t.co/KXRWZThozH— Tellaman (@Real_Tellaman) June 22, 2018

Considering that it was practically after a certain brother had announced and was celebrating his album going gold, the Megacy came out in full force.

@Tellaman I saw the word "plaque" on AKA"s post just now, are u guys having issues one might have missed?— Crazy Love (@SundayMoeng) June 22, 2018
To calm everyone down though, Tellaman took to the same Twitter to clarify.
Guys calm down.— Tellaman (@Real_Tellaman) June 22, 2018
1. I ain’t been in AKA’s place.
2. You assuming shit.
3. I bought his album.
4. If you know that you bought his album as his fan, why are you worried?
5. I thought his line about me was funny 😂
I’m cool with AKA 🙏🏾 and I’m happy for him. https://t.co/t17UPOU2nx
