It was “Mega Story Time” on Twitter as AKA opened up on how he got autotune.
The rapper stuck to autotune since there was no-one doing it in SA.
Here is the story told:
“It was a warm summers day. KJF was minding his business in the halls of the SABC as a up and coming rapper/producer … until someone played him “F.I.R.E” by Bongz … Maggz .. and kairos future godfather. Future Mega thought to himself no ways … that sounds just like everyone in the states RN. Mind you this was 2011/12/13.”
“Fast forward a few years and Mega is the most Godly of Godlies. He decides that since no one in south ahh is executing LIVE auto tune properly, AND he has always used it … well. It’s time for him to start a band.”
AKA has become a platinum selling artist due to the autotune and he’s sticking to it.
“Mega goes on to sell hundreds of thousands of records with this auto tune … the only people who complain start sprinting up on Twitter. They have no avatars …. mega is conflicted.”
“I can hold a note. I cannot SING. I can play the MOUSE . I cannot play with piano. I been using auto since VICTORY LAP. Like … shrug. You don’t criticize Travis for using it OR criticized Pitch Black Afro for using the EXACT same flow as Busta Rhymes. I rest my case.”
