Indeed, politics is not for the faint-hearted!
For years now Kiernan Forbes commonly known as AKA has expressed a great interest in politics. It even got to a point of being a celebrity advocate and passionate follower for the leading political party, African National Congress.
The recent saga involving Nigerian singer Burna Boy, which led to Economic Freedom Fighter’s leader Julius Malema throwing a number of shades on AKA had Bhova take a permanent step back. Malema became one of the people who said Burna Boy is welcome in SA despite his views about Xenophobia in South Africa.
After all the tweets making rounds, Supa Mega decided to relinquish engagements involving politics. “I am never getting involved in politics in any way.”
After being an active ANC supporter even promoting on social media, Mega made a decision to take a step back.
“One thing that has been particularly worrying is the silence from my own leadership, especially the department of arts and culture. It truly is up to us, the people, to solve our own problems. I have not been led, I have been left to lead,” he wrote.
Here’s how tweeps reacted to the unexpected decision:
Take a break, assess and come back. You play an important role my bro. This game called politics is hard.
