On 21 February, AKA will be the steak at Comedy Central’s The Roast of AKA which will see the likes of Francois Van Coke, Nina Hasties, Mark Fish and Pearl Thusi as part of the roast panel.
When asked about his thoughts on Pearl Thusi being part of the roast panel, AKA shared that he didn’t mind as they were like family.
“That is the things about family. You feud, you fight, you fall out, you fall back. We are not different to any other family. I am glad it is her because it is time for a black female to do this. It shows progress” said Supamega
AKA also expressed that, at times, there needs to be a line drawn and not everything is a joke, the Fela In Versace rapper said he didn’t of mind if DJ Zinhle was part of the roast but his daughter was off limits.
“If people want to bring Zinhle into the roast it is at their own discretion. It is for fun and for making jokes but it is important to remember that the roast has serious consequences. It is done in the frame of comedy but jokes always have a bit of truth and reality attached to them. Let’s so how it goes.”
