Late last year, a clip of EFF leader Julius Malema speaking about the negative effects of payola has on the local entertainment industry spread on social media like wildfire. In the clip, Julius was heard using AKA’s name more than a few times which led to the star hitting back and asking why he felt the need to use his name in this debate.
However, it seems their feud is over. The star and the politician patched things up after AKA performed in Polokwane during the festive season. AKA shared an image of the him with Julius on social media with the caption “Thank You for hosting us and for your kind words. God Bless you and your family in 2019 and beyond.” Naturally, he also gifted Julius a bottle of his watermelon-flavoured vodka.
Well, the new year is a time for new beginnings they say…
