Rapper AKA volunteered to be a punching bag for verbal jabs last night when the Comedy Central Roast of AKA took place at Montecasino's Teatro in Johannesburg.

The event was hosted by DJ Zinhle’s bestie, Pearl Thusi, who must have had all kinds of shade to throw at Bonang’s ex.

If you didn't snap up a ticket in time, you'll need to wait to catch the roast's premiere on Comedy Central on March 11 to see the likes of Penny Penny, Moonchild Sanelly and Davido diss the rapper. (Can't wait? Here are five things AKA got dragged for.)

In the meantime, here's a look at the celebrities that turned up to see Supa Mega be humbled — or to humble him themselves as roast panellists:
