Sizwe Dhlomo hit back at AKA trying to mock him on Sunday and didn’t mince his words.
Taking to Twitter, the “Newzroom Afrika ” host responded to the “Fela In Versace” rapper trying to mock him for wearing bootleg jeans and driving a tractor.
Which was a jab by AKA mostly likely in retaliation to Sizwe calling him an “awful business person” after his Reebok meltdown this week.
AKA said in his tweet: “Riding tractors & calling people ‘ninjas’ while wearing bootleg cut jeans … I’m dead”.
Riding tractors & calling people “ninjas” while wearing bootleg cut jeans 😂😂😂😂😂 … I’m dead 💀— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 17, 2020
Sizwe responded making it clear he wasn’t playing games and said: “I’ll be very direct with you son, mina I’ll f**k you up for free, no need to sign contracts. Then I’ll front you money for legal fees after that.”

Referencing the “Jika” hitmaker’s rant about Cassper Nyovest in March, where he claimed a boxing match deal was on the table but Mufasa didn’t sign the contract.
Tweeps were shook by Sizwe’s direct approach and shared their thoughts online.

The company said it was disappointed that it had to hear about the issues raised by AKA on social media.
The full statement reads: “Reebok is aware of the claims made by South African rapper Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, known as AKA, on Twitter where he has stated non-payment for the brand collaboration of his custom made Reebok SneAKA.
“In October 2019, we executed a successful launch of the Reebok SneAKA. Upon entering into the relationship, both parties were happy with the agreement, and the terms of the launch were not disputed.
“Reebok met all of our contractual obligations related to the launch. Earlier this year, Reebok communicated with AKA and his management that due to a shift in strategy, we would not be able to renew his contract as an ambassador for the brand.
“However, we did discuss a new approach of working with AKA. Reebok is thus very disappointed to be learning of the issues raised on social media, as we believed the relationship to still be on a strong footing to negotiate potential future deals.”
