If you call sometime last year (2015) rapper AKA went on a Twitter rant saying rapper iFani’s album going Gold was a lie and that alcohol brand Redds had bought the albums instead. That story has long blown over, as many of these social media dramas do.
Recently iFani took to twitter (see below) to praise AKA’s rival rapper Cassper Nyovest and basically called him king, saying no one can knock him off his throne.
“There’s nothin nobody can do to knock Cassper off his throne. If #Skelm doesnt prove that to you, nothing will,” iFani tweeted.
Whether iFani was taking a slight jab at AKA or not, we are not sure. But we do agree with him, Cassper is doing big things.

If a brand bought 20 000 Ifani albums ... Surely I could get someone to buy the remaining 2K right?— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 12, 2015
I understand where AKA is comin from tho, he has 500 000 followers & cant sell 2000 copies to get his first ever Gold Award. It hurts. #work— iFani (@iFani_Haymani) May 12, 2015
Just as a side note tho b'reiy, @akaworldwide ,Redds did not buy 20 000 copies of my album. Enkosi for the congratulations #work— iFani (@iFani_Haymani) May 12, 2015
When we FINALLY get that Gold plaque it's going to feel good knowing that every single sale was made by a fan who felt the need to BUY it.— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 12, 2015

We support local talent & we are proud of @iFani_Haymani. The brand did not have any involvement in buying copies of the album.— Redd's SA (@ReddsSA) May 12, 2015
We didn't buy 20K CDs but @iFani_Haymani CAN we buy 200 from you now for the first 200 retweets we get on this tweet? pic.twitter.com/Lab6UaKR03— Redd's SA (@ReddsSA) May 12, 2015
In a series of interviews following the alleged scandal, iFani owed all his success to hard work and determination.S/O to AKA for today's sales. Nw we can officially tell people that Redds bought 200 CDs from me 200CDs in 19mins https://t.co/AlctAtDNms— iFani (@iFani_Haymani) May 12, 2015
May this album sell because of the dream I had, chased & worked hard for to make a reality. The other hype is irrelevant. #1stDayGold— iFani (@iFani_Haymani) May 13, 2015
