AKA’s further involvement with the iRock Festival allegedly hangs in the balance after Sunday’s events.
The Polokwane leg of the tour saw DJ Black Coffee slap AKA’s road manager Tshiamo Letshwene for allegedly setting up while his set was still on.
The reason for AKA’s camp setting up at the time was that they were 2 hours late, which was allegedly communicated to the organisers 3 weeks in advance since he would be coming from another event on the day.
Since then, AKA’s road manager has laid a criminal case against Nkosinathi “Black Coffee” Maphumulo, though no arrests have been made thus far.
Speaking to the Sowetan, the festival’s founder and president Rito Hlungwani said they were still in talks with AKA’s camp on whether he should perform at the festival’s Rustenburg leg in December following the happenings in Limpopo.
He told the newspaper that although AKA has signed a contract with the organizers, the’re waiting for an e-mail from AKA’s management to confirm whether or not AKA should perform.
