As if Kanye West didn’t have enough problems after Kid Cudi’s rant against him this week, the US rap star has been called out by South African rapper AKA.
AKA followed in the footsteps of his US counterpart this week by opening a pop-up merchandise store in Cape Town, the only difference is that AKA claims that his merchandise is better. That’s AKA for you in case you missed the memo.
Taking to Twitter as the doors of his store opened on Thursday, AKA shaded the quality of Kanye West’s merchandise being sold at his Cape Town pop-up store, claiming that it was made from “rubbish wholesale T-shirts”.
Kanye West shut down Cape Town several weeks ago when he launched a pop-up store for his Saint Pablo tour merchandise in the city.
AKA made sure he showed off the quality of his merchandise, displaying branded t-shirts and long sleeve shirts ahead of his Supa Mega Show in Cape Town this weekend.
We’re not sure that AKA’s criticism of Kanye’s merchandise will ever reach Kanye’s ears, especially after the US rapper this week revealed that he has ditched his cellphone to focus on his music, but we’ll be sure to look out for a response. But at all in all, everyone is here to make. You don’t have to be so salty. Doesn’t look good on you.
