Back-to-back loadshedding is causing “dark days” in South Africa right now. Everyone is affected by the ongoing Eskom issue, and even celebrities are starting to lose patience.
AKA, a Grammy-winning rapper, is one of many South Africans who are sick of load shedding and eager for a fix to the ongoing issue. The rapper said, “Surely it’s time to think about an alternative to Eskom in terms of giving power to our country. He also requested assistance from South African, born billionaire Elon Musk. Musk was raised in Pretoria but left when he was 17 years old.
AKA tweeted: “Excuse me sir … @elonmusk … I cannot for the life of me understand why the government hasn’t approached you to come help us out with this electricity crisis but is there any chance you could perhaps do us a solid, you know, with you being born here and all’’. In 2006, Musk helped found SolarCity, a solar energy firm that was eventually acquired by Tesla and renamed Tesla Energy.
AKA is known to comment on national affairs and is a renowned supporter of the ruling ANC party. Politics was brought up by his admirers, who reminded him that the same people he voted for are also responsible for the present electrical issue.
