Not one to shy away from a political debate or share his views on burning topics, AKA began tweeting about the Cabinet reshuffle that happened last night.
Ten ministers and deputies were axed from President Jacob Zuma’s Cabinet, with Pravin Gordhan and his deputy, Mcebisi Jonas, being given the boot from the finance ministry. AKA has always been vocal about being an ANC supporter and has often performed at rallies for the ruling party.
Today he was locked in a debate with his Twitter fans after he began tweeting about how Zuma had given the power back to the youth by appointing Malusi Gigaba to the finance ministry.
This prompted people to ask him if he really understood what being a youth was and if he had contributed to the youth of this country in any way besides selling his music.
AKA also stirred some controversy by saying that he would support the Guptas and Zuma anytime over the Oppenheimer family, who are one of SA’s wealthiest families.
He also took on Gordhan, saying he was practically a puppet for white monopoly.
