It has been said that to be a celebrity is to be open to the “firing squad” of the public. Criticism and condemnations pour in like nobody’s business. Some celebs are able to take things in stride, while others resort to firing back at those who fire at them.
Well, Kiernan “AKA” Forbes was on the firing line recently after buying himself a BMW worth about R2 million. AKA is a well-known BMW fan and almost all his cars are of that make. But that’s by the way.
The songster had shown off his latest whip on Instagram which elicited mostly congratulations from his fans. But one of them appeared totally unimpressed with the new purchase. The fan, who goes by the Twitter name Forei9ner, described AKA as one of the stupidest South African celebrities he ever came across.
He wondered why the rapper should ask Elon to help fix South Africa’s power problem while splurging millions on a car. Apparently, AKA should have been the one to spend his money to fix South Africa’s power problem.
“I apologize… sincerely,” AKA retweeted sarcastically. You can check out the post below.
