Ri­vals AKA and Cassper unite in pol­i­tics

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment -

DE­SPITE be­ing arch-en­e­mies who have been em­broiled in one of South Africa’s long­est stand­ing feuds, AKA and Cassper’s po­lit­i­cal stance is one of a united front.

As thou­sands of South Africans con­tinue to make their way to vot­ing polls across the coun­try for the muchan­tic­i­pated lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tions, hip-hop fans will be pleased to know that their icons will both be vot­ing for the rul­ing party.

AKA has been in­cred­i­bly vo­cal and ac­tive about ral­ly­ing be­hind the ANC in the lead up to the elec­tions.

How­ever, Cassper has been rel­a­tively silent on his po­lit­i­cal stance un­til a few hours be­fore vot­ing polls opened. Tak­ing to so­cial me­dia on Tues­day night, Cassper re­vealed that he was re­cently in­volved in an al­leged racist in­ci­dent, which re­sulted in him speak­ing out about vot­ing for the ANC.

“I’d a racist en­counter at the air­port the other day. I cried and I al­most got into a fight. It was such a painful ex­pe­ri­ence. I al­most got into a fight be­cause I’ll not tol­er­ate racism,” Cassper tweeted.

The rap­per ex­plained that the in­ci­dent made him think about what his par­ents went through be­fore 1994.
