AKA accused of ‘losing the plot’ after Zuma load-shedding claims
AKA has once again faced the Twitter firing squad after telling Mzansi, during the height of power cuts, that we made our bed by kicking Jacob Zuma out, and now we must sleep in it.
The rapper, like hundreds of others, flocked to Twitter on Monday after news that Eskom had introduced stage six load-shedding.
The power utility said the decision was made due to a “shortage of capacity” following a technical problem at Medupi power station “impacting additional generation supply.”
While tweeps blamed everything from the weather to the president, AKA suggested the rolling blackouts had something to do with former president Jacob Zuma being ousted from power.
He said the nation had “made your bed” and now needed to “sleep in it”.
So y’all kicked Zuma out and now we at Stage 6. Made your bed, sleep in it.— AKA (@akaworldwide) December 9, 2019
Soon the rapper's mentions were blowing up as fans labelled him a hypocrite and said he was “losing the plot”.

AKA responded to the criticisms leveled against him, telling users he was not into politics but popularity.
He also brushed off all those who brought up his relationship with the ANC and President Cyril Ramaphosa, telling them "we were all in the same boat now".
Yes. I voted ANC ... so what? You voted EFF and we both load shedded, and our batteries are dying. Now shut the fuck up.— AKA (@akaworldwide) December 9, 2019
