South African heavyweight rapper, AKA, made a confession about having suicidal thoughts as well as alarming revelations on his mental health in an unreleased song.
Taking to Twitter AKA shared a snippet of an unreleased song in which he raps about being suicidal in 2021, as well as revealing the late Riky Rick turned down the invitation to host The Braai Show. AKA went on to say that he was broke at the time and that the SABC had previously promised him prospects on the channel. In the song, the rapper puts out the following lines
“Shout out to Makhado, principles, morals, they said come host The Braai Show, he said NO WAYS! Around the time that I was suicidal. The narrative was Supa Mega doesn’t have bread.”
The SABC went on and Premiered Season 2 of The Braai with AKA’s rival Cassper Nyovest becoming the new host of the show. This led to tongues wagging after AKA initiated legal proceedings over his rights to the show.
According to court documents revealed at the time, AKA had withdrawn from the show to deal with personal issues, but Cassper insisted that the rapper had no ownership of The Braai Show. With the recent court ruling however, it was confirmed AKA owned 50% ownership rights of the show.
