Somizi had to explain himself recently when his fans questioned his allegiance to the LGBTQI+ community. This after he tweeted about forgiving rapper AKA for using the derogatory term “m***ie”. AKA went on an explosive Twitter rant against Cassper Nyovest last week when he lost his cool and threw in “m***ie” in his attempt to belittle Cassper.
AKA later apologised after receiving major backlash on social media. I’d like to apologise to anybody offended by my use of the word “moffie” in a previous tweet. At some point, I thought it wasn’t a big deal to use this word. I understand now tit’s not acceptable.
Somizi, one of the most influential people in the LGBTQI+ community, responded by tweeting about forgiving the rapper for his lapse in judgement. His acceptance of AKA’s apology, although a great demonstration of ubuntu, received mixed reactions on Twitter. Some felt he shouldn’t have accepted the apology because the rapper should have known better from the get-go. After seeing the response to his forgiveness tweet, Somizi explained why he forgave AKA. We all make mistakes unintentionally,” he said.

“Moffie” As a gay individual. I did nothing but to support you and your music. You are cancelled for this. You couldn’t wait for an opportunity to be homophobic. I hope Cassper really don’t sign those papers, ignores you & that will be his WIN. At least he’s humble & respectful. https://t.co/Dqashq0nLs
