As news of rapper Cassper Nyovest expecting his first child broke, the mood went from a celebratory one to one that had many social media users feeling awkward.
This is because as soon as some Twitter users heard that Cassper was going to become a father, they found a way to include his known rival, fellow rapper AKA into the equation by suggesting that AKA's daughter Kairo would be Cassper's unborn son's girlfriend.
As Cassper hit the trends list so did Kairo as some tweeps suggested that any minute now Kairo would have a boyfriend.
One user replied to Cassper's announcement tweet saying, "Kairo has a future boyfriend".
I'm going to be a father Any Minute Now so I decided 2 name my album #AMN (Any Minute Now). The album cover is an actual scan of my son in his beautiful mother's womb. Excited about dis album but I'm more excited bout being a dad 2 a beautiful baby boy. #AMN drops September 11th. pic.twitter.com/QKazPQ98ty

While others jumped onto the bandwagon, AKA was not having this and hit back at those who he said were sexualising his daughter.
"Your banner says “stop raping women” but you are here on Twitter talking about a 4 year old girl and an unborn baby boyfriend? Like, what is wrong with people?" was the Fela In Versace hitmaker's response to one tweep.

Many other Twitter users agreed with "Fela In Versace" hitmaker.
See reactions below:
You know I don't like AKA and I will never like him because of his arrogance but I can agree with him that you guys are sexualising his daughter with Cassper's unborn son. All those tweets about Kairo being "Simba's wife" are not funny they're basically part of rape culture

Kairo is 4 or 5 years old but you're comfortable with even thinking about her in the context of dating and whatnot. I see why SA has such high cases of child molestation.
Nywe nywe "iTs JuST a jOKe"…every joke has an underlying meaning and sexualizing a child is NEVER FUNNY pic.twitter.com/vNQGDkrYsl
