Recently in the Mzansi entertainment space, more and more women have been entering the DJ space including DBN Gogo, Thuli Phongolo and viral sensation Uncle Waffles.

Taking to his Instagram Stories recently, the “Fela In Versace” rapper seemed to have some thoughts about this and said: “Not so long ago every second hun was a rapper. Now everyone's a DJ.“

Tweeps didn’t appreciate his comment and quickly threw jabs at the current state of his career.

Last week the “Super Soft” hitmaker announced that he would be making a cameo appearance in “Nandi”.

AKA posted the trailer of the movie in which he is seen speaking to award-winning actress, Lorcia Cooper.

“Check out the trailer for “NANDI” … produced by none other than my homie @alessiobettocchi Congrats on your first film champ! Looking forward to seeing it! And oh yeah … peep your boi’s like cameo too! Had lots of fun shooting it,” said AKA in the post.

Directed by Khalid EL-Jelailati, the film follows the spiralling journey of Nandi and Carl in the underbelly of the criminal world.

The two meth addicts struggle to make ends meet and are forced to turn to prostitution to feed their habits.

This comes at a high personal cost as they find themselves encroaching on the territory of Moth, an ambitious and violent pimp, soon to be the most dominant meth dealer in town.

Whether it’s thanks to bad luck or good fortune, they somehow stumble across a bag filled with Moth’s drugs and true to junkie form - they steal it.

What ensues is a cacophony of violence and blood.

Alongside Lorcia Cooper, Nandi stars Riky Rick, Thenjiwe Pswarayi, Dumisani Mbebe, Camilla Waldman, Anga Makubalo and Yemi Ajayi.
