Burna Boy Outside

More proof that African boys are the actual wave right now… 

Burna Boy has achieved his biggest chart performance yet with his latest offering, Outside. The album entered the Billboard Hot 200 Reggae Albums chart at number 3!

Outside has been plugged as one of the best Nigerian albums to have been released in the first part of 2018, and if you’ve given it a spin like we have, you would agree.

Rock Your Body is the single from Outside

Burna Boy’s third album came shy of topping the chart as Vessel of Love by Hollie Cook remains at number 1, while Damian Marley’s Stony Hill takes the second spot.

The Nigerian artist’s previous appearance on the chart was with his sophomore album, LIFE, which peaked in the seventh position.

Burna Boy’s sweet relationship with South Africa was first solidified when he appeared on AKA’s smash hit All Eyes On Me, before he did the damn thing with Soke.

Riky Rick Says Cassper & AKA Beef Is Draining To The Culture

He thinks it has overstayed its welcome.

Riky Rick has lambasted the long running feud between South African rappers Cassper Nyovest and AKA.

The Sidlukotini hitmaker said the beef “is exhausting for the game” and “draining the life out of the culture.”

“It might exciting for twitter but behind the scenes its something most rappers keep quiet on because its draining the life out of the culture”, he tweeted.

Riky explained that he had been on a call with AKA to air his grievances about the beef. And while him and Cassper haven’t been on good terms lately, he denied that he’s taking any sides. “I hate watching them fight”, he said.

AKA and Cassper have had one of the longest running beefs in the the culture’s memory. Although they are both insanely successful in their own respects, they haven’t been able to move past their differences.

In March this year, their feud reached new lows. Flying into a rage, AKA tweeted some insulting remarks to both Cassper and his parents. After a wave of backlash, he apologised and maintained a low profile for a few weeks.

Riky’s sentiment on the beef comes just after he weighed in on the AKA and Sizwe Dhlomo situation, in which he condemned Sizwe’s criticism of AKA’s business decisions.

As QuenchSA reported last week, AKA documented his fallout with global sportswear brand Reebok. Amongst the claims made by the rapper, a contract was never signed for his brand ambassadorship of the ‘SNEAKA’ sneaker range.

Culture commentator and businessman Sizwe added his two cents’ worth on the topic. Although AKA is doing a pretty good job at being a musician, he said, the business decisions that attend to that show have not exactly been top tier.

During an Instagram Live session with Da L.E.S, Makhado told Sizwe to “stop coming for the rappers.” Acknowledged that Sizwe could be interested in the building the rap culture in South Africa, being condescending to the rappers ain’t it.

“Don’t try to make (rappers) look weak or lesser than you. They are still trying to figure it out too. We are all trying to figure it. We haven’t figured it out like you. We are not at your level. We don’t own farms.”

AKA and Sizwe’s Feud Heats Up on Twitter

Well the claws are out.

Published

on

Sizwe vs AKA 2020

They are two of the most outspoken South African celebrities. And on Sunday, AKA and Sizwe exchanged a few jibes at each other, and it wasn’t just bants.

AKA poked fun at Sizwe’s denim garb, claiming the former MTV presenter’s bootleg jean waring ways excluded him from playing with the other cool kids.

Not one to take the mudslinging laying low, Sizwe retorted with a series of tweets in which he challenged the rapper to a physical scuffle, and amongst other things, claimed AKA’s girlfriends are the ones settling his bills.

RELATED: AKA CHATS FALL OUT WITH REEBOK 

And now that the rapper is getting ready to debut no less than three brand new single on Friday, May 22nd, a little publicity won’t won’t hurt.

On Wednesday, AKA continued charging at Dhlomo, and questioned how Sizwe’s grandfather was able to farm during the years of Apartheid, when black people in South Africa were structurally excluded from participating in the community at this scale.

AKA also continued targeting Sizwe and the denim issue…

To clear the air, Sizwe engaged Twitter on bits of his family history

 

While the genesis of their strife remains vague, AKA told Scoop Makhathini and Bontle Modiselle during a YFM interview that Sizwe has been poking at him for far too long.

One such moment, as Twitter recalls came recently when the culture commentator and occasional troll slammed AKA’s poor business decisions. The comment came after the rapper publicised his fallout with Reebok.

AKA also poked fun at his arch rival Cassper Nyovest by sharing a throwback snap of the two together, and making fun of Cassper’s lyrics on Amademoni.

It could mean he is quite confident about the bars on his looming three singles, which will be premiering this coming Friday.
