iFani has added his voice to this week’s controversy, after the leaked images and videos of AKA’s relationship with Anele Tembe, and the drama unfolding with Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali.
iFani who’s had public exchanges with rapper AKA in the past, recently posted on his account that he is glad he is no longer in the public spotlight as a celebrity and that he feels for Black Coffee and not AKA.
I’m so glad
I’m not a celebrity anymore
I feel for Nkosinathi 😥
I feel for Kiernan 😭
No, wait, sungxama… I feel for Nkosinathi qha.

AKA calls iFani a rubbish artist
Last year AKA called iFani a rubbish artist who lied about selling 20 000 copies of his album.
In his interview with Hellen Hirimbi he repeatedly calls him a rubbish artist saying he picked a fight with the wrong artist.

Their feud goes back to 2015, when iFani’s I Believes In Me: 2nd Quadrant made history when it reached Gold certification in just a day!
It all began on Twitter, where AKA hinted that iFani only managed to go Gold in a day because a “brand” had bought 20 000 copies of his album.
Tweeps have responded to iFani comments about AKA:
People saying iFani was never a celebrity just for likes. Ingoma ezimnandi was once one of the biggest songs in the country. Had other hits – shake, ewe, milli, amakhwenkwe. Became a TV presenter. This man was one of the most booked artist in the country. https://t.co/OIBNNHtlIh
