South African rapper Nadia Nakai has lashed out at the local clothing brand, Amakipkip, for creating commemorative T-shirts of her late lover, AKA, without the family’s permission.
The brand created the T-shirts recently and put them up for sale at a price of R600. The decision to put the clothes out for sale without involving AKA’s family provoked outrage among South Africans. Even AKA’s younger brother had to post about it and highlight the insensitivity of the brand.
Taking to her official Twitter account following the release of the clothing, Nadia Nakai sounded enraged by it all, Reacting to a tweet by Rubiu Thulisa, she was like, “WTF!” The anger latent in the tweet wasn’t lost on her fans and fans of the slain rapper, who popped into the comment section to share their displeasure as well. You can check out the post below.
AKA was shot dead at point-blank range on February 10 this year soon after he emerged from Wish Restaurant on Florida Road in Durban. He was in the company of his associates at the time, including his former manager, Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane, who was killed with him as well.
An investigation into the rapper’s killing is currently ongoing.
