Hip Hop archrivals AKA and Cassper Nyovest are at twar again and this time around it's the battle of the vodka ambassadors, with the 'Star Signs' rapper throwing the first punch.
AKA shared snaps from his latest watermelon flavoured Cruz Vodka shoot on Thursday, and mentioned that he makes money off every bottle and spoke to the brand's executives about expanding the Cruz Vodka family.
Every time you buy a bottle of @Cruzvodka 🍉 you put money DIRECTLY in my pocket. Thank You. PLEASE put pressure on these other brands operating in OUR COUNTRY to empower our people 💔 .— AKA (@akaworldwide) September 20, 2018
Last night I spoke to the bosses at the shoot. I told them it’s time we start thinking about extending the CRUZ family ... Who y’all think we should add to the team?? ... and GIVE THEM THEIR OWN FLAVOUR?!?!— AKA (@akaworldwide) September 20, 2018
However, despite AKA blatant flexing, the tweet that raised eyebrows was the not so subtle jab directed at Nyovest's partnership with Ciroc.
AKA said it's a "shame" that other "brands will fly you half-way around the world for you to take photos next to people who don’t care about you, instead of them giving you a slice of their business".
What a damn shame! These other brands will fly you half way around the world for you to take photos next to people who don’t care about you, instead of them giving you a slice of their business ... what a scam.— AKA (@akaworldwide) September 20, 2018
Mufasa's fans quickly alerted him to AKA's post, and the "Destiny" hitmaker swiftly responded with a subtweet of his own, and said: "let’s not do the Boss talk N*****s".
Let’s not do the Boss talk Niggas. Not with me. Ownership chats? With me? Nah but look, My artist is dropping her single tomorrow , it’s titled #YassBitch . She’s one of the most booked acts in the country. We build brands round here. Family Tree!!! ALL DAY!!! https://t.co/xFcqF7MzhZ— R.M Phoolo (@CassperNyovest) September 20, 2018
Nyovest then threw another jab at the 'Fela In Versace', implying that AKA tries to copy his style.
The 'Get Getsa 2.0' rapper then shared a series of posts telling fans that they shouldn't their enemies.
If there’s one person you don’t have to worry about, it’s your enemy. He always knows how far you are. If you’re gonna explain yourself or use your energy, use it on your fans. Explain yourself to those who love you. Your enemy knows your power & your gift better than your fans.— R.M Phoolo (@CassperNyovest) September 20, 2018
I’ve been called all kind of things. I won’t even name them cause they hold no weight and didn’t stop me from chasing dream . I’m tipsy, I’m in Milan bro. Niggas don’t make it were I’m from. I don’t think you understand how mad this shit is cause ke tswa montshiwa ko dithobane.— R.M Phoolo (@CassperNyovest) September 20, 2018
