AKA has explained why he's not on the SA Hip-Hop Awards nominees list.

AKA had to call the 'Megacy' to order on Monday night after the SA Hip-Hop Awards nominees list was released and the Fela In Versace star was not on it. 

The Megacy went into attack mode and AKA had to quickly put out the fire by explaining that he did not submit because he's no longer interested in awards. 

AKA went on to explain that not submitting was just a personal preference at this point in his career. 

"I am simply not interested in people telling us who is great and who is deserving and who isn’t anymore. Bob Marley and Tupac never won Grammies. I also don’t look down on people who DO submit or care about awards. It’s just my preference at this point in my career." 

The rapper said he was grateful for all the awards he's received so far but he's not into it right now.
