The rapper has come out to explain why he no longer opens for International act’s shows following his mistreatment at rapper Wale’s concert.
South African Hip hop act AKA has narrated why he pulled out of American rapper Wale’sconcert having been billed as an opening act for the show.
He reveals being treated unfairly by the organizers and promoters of the show, saying he and his band were put in a ‘wack’ hotel, and when he tried reaching out to them to complain about the unsatisfactory state of the accommodation, they were practically unreachable.
Taking to Twitter, he tweets: ““Eventually after being ignored all day, we’re rushed to the venue. When we get there, they start shouting at us like we’re they’re kids,” AKA said. And that was when he was done with the whole show.
“I told them to go fuck themselves, called the band back and bounced,” he said, not giving a flipping bird when the promoters said he would never be booked for a show again.
“That’s the story of how I stopped “opening” for “international” acts,” the rapper said, adding, “That was the last one.”
A few weeks ago, he was dealt the same blow at South Africa’s biggest festival ‘Back to the City‘, arguing that the organisers promoted international acts while relegating the local talents to the background.
