AKA Unimpressed By R2 200 Covid-19 Relief Fund For Artists

Rapper AKA, one of the country’s most spoken celebs about the effect of Covid-19 and the lockdown, has disapproved the decision by sports, arts and culture minister Nathi Mthethwa to give artistic R2,200 a month for the next three months.

On Monday Mthethwa announced a second trend of relief funds for artists and employees in the arts industry, explaining that artistic can apply to actually get R2,200 a month  to ease the effects of the pandemic and the lockdown.

AKA weigh up in on the decision, asking what he would do with this amount. The rapper said the whole thing seemed backwards to him because, seemingly, the people who calculated the amount didn’t take into account the usual lifestyle of artists.

“Why the f**k has it been designated to artists who spend that amount of money per week on ganja, and not given to people who actually need it? It’s all a** backwards.” he said.

Some felt AKA was being ungrateful and that, compared to the R350 normal citizens get, R2,200 was a lot of money. However, AKA was rigid the money would never be enough for him. “I am not retrenched and I am not unemployed. I am trying to not retrench people and I am self-employed. You guys are not going to force me to be grateful for R2k from the government. It does not mean s**t to me.”
