The rapper was the headline act at the “All White 80s Party” at Trimpak in Potchefstroom, North West, on Sunday. Other popular South African artists and entertainers such as Nasty C, Destruction Boyz, Shane Eagle, Mlindo, DJ Maphorisa and many others, graced the stage to celebrate the Day of Reconciliation holiday. 

Taking to Twitter, AKA said: “I totally understand that people are excited and we wanna have a good time but getting hit with a full can of beer is not swag. Unfortunately, someone spoiled the show for everyone in Potch tonight. I never understood this throwing of beer cans as a way of excitement or affection but tonight … tonight I nearly got hurt (sic).”

“I’m really sorry. You saw we tried to go back on stage … the promoters even got on stage themselves and asked people not to throw cans. We went on stage not once, but twice … we got the organisers to make announcements about throwing full cans of beer on stage. Unfortunately, people didn’t listen (sic),” – The Fela In Versace rapper added. 

“Do you understand that I don’t want my head busted open by a can of beer? Like?! Why would I put myself in such a position?? Disappointing man … our people need to learn how to behave themselves.”

While many fans were understanding and sympathetic to the rapper, some fans were not sympathetic, reminding him that it was karma coming back to bite him after he did not treat them well in the past.
