AKA has joined the wave of outrage that has swept through the country after the rape of a six-year-old girl at a Dros restaurant two weeks ago
On Tuesday, the Pretoria Magistrates Court was a hive of activity when the 20-year-old man accused of raping a little girl at a Dros restaurant in Silverton, Pretoria, appeared.
According to several reports the man did not apply for bail and returned to prison after the case was postponed to 1 November.
Taking to Twitter shortly after the court proceedings, rapper AKA who has a three-year-old daughter with DJ Zinhle said he was afraid for his little girl’s safety.
“As a father, this whole Dros rapist saga is heartbreaking and scary. I fear for my own daughter’s safety and what kind of world she has to grow up in. It’s so messed up, man, so so messed up,” he said.

The accused was apparently found with a substance that looked like cocaine.
