AKA Could Be Taking Shots at Burna Boy in His Verse on Costa Tich’s ‘Nkalakatha Remix’

'Cancel my people, cancel your visa,' raps AKA.

AKA and Riky Rick recently jumped on up-and-coming rapper Costa Tich's viral hit "Nkalakatha." Riky Rick's verse doesn't disappoint, as usual—he has been on a winning streak with his guest verses (let's not get into his verse on Priddy Ugly's verse "Every Mountain Got a Peak").


But AKA's verse has been trending since the song dropped yesterday. It's the subliminal shots he's throwing in the verse that has a lot of people talking. He seems to take aim at Burna Boy's recent tirade about South Africa amidst the xenophobic attacks in September.

He raps:

"I am the king of the jungle, Julius Caesar/ Cancel my people, cancel your visa/ Nobody gon enter/ South Aah is the kingdom, the garden of Eden/ And I'm at the center/ The public protector"

Alongside Sho Madjozi, AKA was one of the most vocal artists who stood up against Burna Boy's tirade which many found crass and a little misguided. In his verse, AKA questions why other celebrities chose to keep mum about the issue. He raps:

"How can I be the only one/ with opinions on the radio on smash?/ Watermelon on taps/ Small politician, big man, v'tsek"

Costa Tich's singe "Nkalakatha" was inspired by the late kwaito star Mandoza's mega hit single of the same name that was released in the year 2000 and is one of the greatest South African songs of all time.
