EXPOSED: Students claim AKA’s donation was a PR stunt


An angry Wits student has taken to social media to drag AKA for his visit and R100 000 donation, claiming he did it for his own agenda.

The rapper must have been shocked to open his Twitter notifications and find that he was still being roasted. But this time there were no jokes; a bemused student made sure AKA felt the heat of her anger when she called him out for using their ‘Fees Must Fall’ movement as a platform for a publicity stunt.

You may recall that AKA lent his services to protesting students at the beginning of the 2019 Wits Student protests.

In early February, AKA visited the academic institution with meals for the protesting students, and a R100 000 cash injection.

At the time the gesture seemed like a massive sign of support from a public figure. Now, less than a month later, at least one student is beginning to think the motive behind the gesture was a little more selfish.

The disgruntled learner took to Twitter to voice her frustration after AKA spoke about mobilising the masses to assist Babes Wodumo. The young woman, who we know to be named Solami, said in response:

And so began a lengthy back-and-forth between AKA and a few students who shared Solami’s sentiments:

While AKA decided to politely sit out the rest of the discussion, many others defended him in his absence, claiming that Solami, and a few of the students who agreed with her, were ungrateful:

On which side of this debate does your opinion lie?

Was AKA’s R100 000 donation a big publicity stunt, or are we focusing on the wrong issue altogether here?
