AKA says he has nothing to prove to people who seem to think his skills have dipped.

Replying to a tweep who asked the rapper to drop some music because "they say your pen game has dropped. Please give them classic Mega, since it seems they forgot, the rapper said: "You know, 'they' will always have something to say. I have nothing to prove as a rapper. My catalogue and the joy I've brought to my people speaks for itself, you know."

AKA gave fans a glimpse of his mental health a months ago, revealing he was in a good space and happy to be alive.

The star has been going through the most in recent years, including the death of his girlfriend Anele ''Nellie” Tembe in April 2021.

He explained that things were looking up for him and he was feeling blessed: “For what it’s worth, I’m just happy to be alive, busy and doing what I love again. Everything else right now is just a bonus."

The rapper also encouraged artists who didn't make it onto the annual Spotify Wrapped list of most popular artists to not give up.

“To all artists looking at all these Spotify Wrapped thingies and feeling discouraged or feeling down for whatever reason, just know that it doesn’t define you. Keep believing in your gift and go harder. Build a loyal fan base that will stick with you through thick and thin,” he tweeted.
