Southy Hypes Doja Cat’s Billboard Chart Topping Milestone

Zandile is finally getting her flowers.

Zandile Dlamini, known to most by her stage name Doja Cat, has scored her very first Billboard Hot 100 #1!

Thanks in part to Nicki Minaj’s guest feature on the remix of Say So, the joint was able to shoot from #6 to the top spot on the world’s biggest chart.

In so doing, Doja Cat has become part of history. This would be the first time that a collaboration between two female rappers has topped the chart, ever. With Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé’s remix of Savage at #2, this is also the first time that four black women occupied the top 2 spots

While Doja Cat’s around the world are celebrating her major win, Mzansi has taken to social media to accept the win as part of their very own!

That’s because although Doja was born and raised in the United States, it’s been reported that her father is veteran South African actor Dumisani Dlamini, who’s known to most for his iconic portrayal of ‘Chester’ on Yizo Yizo.

Last month, Doja Cat made headlines when she opened up briefly about her father being South African.

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 Claims to Have Not Seen a Cent in Reebok Sneaker Range

“Not one cent.”

Published

on

#ReebokMustFall trended on Thursday after AKA made damning claims about not being paid for his creative contributions to the ‘SNEAKA’ sneaker campaign with sportswear brand, Reebok.

The Fela in Versace rapper’s fans reacted to the revelation with shock and disbelief.

Expressing his ire, one fan even shared a video of him shredding his fresh pair of Reebok kicks with a pair of scissors.

It’s certainly odd that at his level, as one of the country’s biggest acts, he’d find himself in such a position.

The rapper shocked fans when he revealed that following after his monthly retainer for ambassadorship had ended with the brand, he did enjoy  further coin for his collaboration for the range of sneakers, which were released as part of the SNEAKA campaign.

AKA alleged that once the initial merchandise ambassadorship deal had lapsed, the rest of his work with the brand continued in a different, less lucrative form. He says after Reebok had decided to to end the deal due to a change in their marketing focus, he was offered to be paid in free clothing merch.

He said yes because “I had no choice … it was always a dream of mine to have my own sneaker. I guess that’s why I took a shitty deal in exchange for doing something for the culture.”

AKA went on to say he wouldn’t be releasing anymore of the sneakers as they have refused to give him “any sort of payment or royalty.”

Reebok has yet to engage the matter publicly, but it’s likely there’s more in the legal detail we are still not aware of in terms of how their contractual deal was structured.

Either way, the 32 year old will be looking for more returns from his freshly launched app, AKA TV. The app, which first surfaced on main app stores on Friday for a monthly subscription of R49.00, aims to give fans further access into the rapper’s personal and professional lives.
