TRUCE! AKA and Anatii make peace
Rappers AKA and Anatii seem to have settled their highly-publicised feud, which made headlines for months last year.
The pair were once the best of buds but their relationship seemed to sour late last year, after AKA accused Anatii of trying to charge him R80,000 for a beat.
What followed was a petty spat between the two, with Anatii not only threatening legal action against AKA but also blurring the Baddest rapper's face out of artwork for the pair's collaboration, The Saga.
AKA later showed his dislike for Anatii by giving him a zero rating when asked to rate his favourite artists, in an interview with Metro FM.
After Anatii replaced AKA with Cassper Nyovest (AKA's most bitter rival) for a live performance of The SAGA at the SA Hip-Hop Awards, fans resigned themselves to the fact that the pair would probably never settle their beef.
But it seems time is a healer. And in the months that have followed their fallout, the pair seem to have grown up.
Speaking on Metro FM on Thursday morning, AKA suggested that he had settled his beef with Anatii and revealed that he had even visited the artist in his studio.
"The other day I actually visited Anatii in his studio. Two days ago. And we had a well-documented rift," he said.
So, what's the chances that he will also kiss and make up with Cassper Nyovest?
AKA addressed the question of whether he will ever work with Cassper, by suggesting that any collaboration between the pair would need to be organic.
"Things have to be organic. I just found that as I grow older I just don't have it in my heart. You know that type of stuff takes a lot of energy. I'm not saying that we have to be best buddies but who knows, man? Never say never," he said.
