AKA is among the fastest rising superstars in Africa. His music has been evolving ever since he joined the music industry. Being in the game for years now, he has has mastered what kind of music his fans would like to listen. He has been giving other artistes sleepless nights with his back to back hits and creativity.
The supa mega star was in the country over the weekend for yet another edition of Blankets and Wine, where he shared the stage with some of the most talented Kenyan artistes. The crowd was pumped up as he sure does know how to make an entrance and pull a crowd.
His music is well recognized not only in Africa but internationally too.
But one thing many people tend to be ticked off about AKA is his rants on twitter. We have all been witnesses to his endless rants. He even got into it with his baby mama last year. He’s been at it with his fellow artistes like Black Coffee, Cassper Nyovest among others.
Well, I bet it was high time he addressed the issue and while in the country, he got the chance to do just that.
During an interview with Larry Madowo on his popular show The Trend, Larry asked him why he’s always starting twitter rants and why it seems that he enjoys while at it.
The ‘World Is Yours’ hitmaker defended himself by saying that he just speaks his mind and that is what a hiphop artiste should do.
“First and foremost they’re not rants or wars either. When I say how I feel and I express myself, the truth is never comfortable and everybody who has been truthful and had something different to say, it never went comfortable with them. So for me, you talk about twitter rants and wars if I was ever waring or ranting I wouldn’t be as successful as I am. I wouldn’t be with the fans that I have and the success that I have. So I think more than anything I’m just sincere and not afraid to speak my mind which is what a hiphop artiste should be,” he said.
He went ahead to add that he believes that he can’t please everybody and staying true to himself is what’s important.
