Black Coffee said the beef all started when AKA tweeted “give Black Coffee a hand” after he won an award title.

In a radio interview with Phat Joe, DJ and producer Black Coffee opened up about his beef with AKA, making it clear on how it all started.

"AKA started it, I can't remember which year it was. I had won an award and he tweeted 'Give Black Coffee a hand'. At the time I didn't even know the guy and that's where it started for me. It upset me so much the following day I looked for him. I called him and he apologized. I asked him, 'Dude is there a problem, I dont even know you, why would you say that?' He then said the tweet had been taken out of context," he explained. Though Black Coffee said he can’t remember the specific year, he said AKA apologized by saying the tweet was taken out of context.

“It’s very important for people to know that we are human. He told Phat Joe. "Two weeks later he (AKA) did a song, where he mentioned that he is so dope that even Black Coffee claps for him," Black Coffee added.

After that AKA and Black Coffee didn’t speak or see each other. The only time the two men had an encounter was at the Irock Festival in Limpopo late 2016, where after a misunderstanding Black Coffee slapped AKA’s road manager Tshiamo Letswene. The slap then lead to some behind the scenes drama that saw videos of AKA fighting with some of the show’s organisers as retaliation to Black Coffee’s slap on his road manager.

The incident was followed by a series of tweets and subtweets where the two were meant to have a ‘showdown’ the Sunday after Irock at Kong nightclub in Rosebank where Black Coffee was performing.

Before the 'showdown' could happen AKA tweeted that he wouldn't be going to KONG for the 'FaceOff' anymore. During his set Black Coffee stopped his set and apologized at the club.

After that the two men have been silent and not taken jabs at each other.
