The Megacy, slain rapper AKA’s legion of fans, are still coming to terms with his passing and every so often, they pay tribute to him by revisiting his old posts on the social media platform X.

One of AKA’s posts in September 2019 has resurfaced ahead of the Rugby World Cup final between the Springboks and the All Blacks. South Africa will be looking to defend their title at the Stade de France on Saturday, 28 October, against New Zealand.

AKA’S PATRIOTISM AND LOVE FOR THE SPRINGBOKS

AKA’s 2019 post came days before the Springboks and and the All Blacks clashed on 21 September during the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

“I really hope the @Springboks beat New Zealand in our WC Opener … it’s a huge rivalry! I’d rather lose to anyone else … maybe even England … than New Zealand … it’s bigger than just Rugby!” the late musician wrote at the time.

Unfortunately, things did not go SA’s way as the Bokke lost 23-13 on 21 September.
