South African rapper, AKA is clapping back at Ycee for insinuating that he made comments during the African Cup of Nations that could instigate xenophobic attacks. The rapper is not having any of that narrative and is quashing the insinuation as quick as he can.
Ycee had insinuated that most South Africans, if not all, had a subtle dislike for Nigerians and even when they try to hide that dislike, it still finds a way to shine through. He then used AKA as an example saying “like when AKA had a full childish grown man tantrum when they (South Africa) lost to Nigeria in the Nations Cup.”
AKA then replied to him asking “Are you talking about this guy?”, accompanied with a picture of himself wrapped in the Nigerian flag in front of a painting of Fela. Ycee was quick to respond that he was talking about ‘THIS’ guy and added a screenshot of the thread that AKA had made about South Africa losing to Nigeria. AKA had said at the time that he would have preferred the country to lose to Egypt instead of Nigeria, with claims that the match was more than just football. He said it was the biggest rivalry on the continent. He then lamented “why do we always have to lose against Naija at EVERYTHING.”
Realising that his words from months ago might be twisted to make it seem like he condoned the xenophobic attacks against Nigeria, AKA quickly replied Ycee, visibly upset that he was being painted in that light and he made sure to show that he was. He replied saying, “South Africa and Nigeria is the continent’s BIGGEST RIVALRY … a SIBLING RIVALRY because we are brothers and sisters … I also hate losing to Australia for fuck’s sake. Let’s pull together as Africans and stop dividing ourselves. This whole narrative is stupid!!!”
It is important that this banter on the timeline does not take away from the severity of the effects of the xenophobic attacks and how it reflects on both countries and the continent at large.
