As the internet still recovers from the petty party thrown by AKA and Cassper over Diddy's Cîroc watermelon announcement, Cass found himself in awar of words with fellow muso JR.

AKA and Cassper both had a social media meltdown on Tuesday evening when US star Diddy teased the launch of Cîroc in a watermelon flavour. Cassper is an ambassador for Cîroc, while AKA launched a watermelon-flavoured range of Cruz Vodka.

The pair have long taken shots at each other over who has the best vodka and when fans saw that Diddy was joining the watermelon wave that AKA has been riding, they suggested it was a defeat for Cass.

Feeling himself after Cîroc announced that it would not be releasing the flavour in SA, Cassper confronted JR, who had earlier tweeted his excitement at watermelon Cîroc coming to our shores.

JR was not here for Cassper's tweet and told him as much in a heated response.

He ended his response by flexing just a little.

By then Cassper had shifted his aim to another celeb who had weighed in on the watermelon debate, telling Tresor to calm down and go play with his guitar.

Tresor clapped back but also made it clear that he wasn't beefing with Cass.

And what would a gloating gala be without a little spice and shade?

Cassper recycled a tweet from AKA on Tuesday about laughing last to make a point.
