If you could roast any South African celebrity, who would it be? Hip-hop star AKA would top the list for a few of you, we bet. He’s larger than life and he’s not afraid to tell you so, having earned his street cred opening for artists such as Snoop Dogg, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar. Now the “Be Careful What You Wish For” will be sitting in the hot seat on 21 February.
Dillon Khan, VP for Comedy Central and Creative Services at Viacom says: “Who better to Roast than the one and only Supamega? If AKA has ever roasted you on social media, then here is your baddest break to see the punisher burn under pressure.”
“The Roast of Somizi was one of the most popular shows on Showmax this year so we can’t wait for AKA,” said Candice Fangueiro, Showmax’s Head of Content. “No need for FOMO the second time round.”
Here’s what Twitter thinks of the upcoming roast:
Filming of the Comedy Central Roast of AKA in partnership with Showmax will be open to the public and will take place on 21 February 2019 at The Teatro at Montecasino Teatro in Johannesburg. Tickets are available from Computicket for R300.
