After seeing a number of NSFAS applications rejected by the State funding agency, students from the University of Wits took it upon themselves to stage a campus shut down. In response to the protest, armed security have been deployed across campuses and protesters have been met with damning hostility (remember 2016/17's Fees Must Fall protests?).
At a time when many are turning a blind eye towards the struggles of our students, AKA has taken it upon himself to use his platform to cast a spotlight to their problems. The rapper took to Twitter to say:
Many Tweeps applauded the rapper for taking such a bold stance at a time when his peers are notably silent.
Do you think that this will be the beginning of a large wave of support for South African students?
Love AKA? We have a page that is all AKA!
