South African local daily newspaper Sowetan revealed that following the success of The Roast of Somizi earlier this year the controversial rapper, known by his other moniker Supa Mega, will headline next year’s Comedy Central Roast.
The Comedy Central Roast of AKA will be filmed at The Teatro at Montecasino on February 21. Viewers will be treated to the rapper, renowned for his smash diss track Composure, facing the music as he takes a verbal lashing from industry peers.
The list of names set to bake, boil and roast the Baddest and The World is Yours hitsmaker will only be announced next year.

But AKA told Sowetan yesterday that top of the list on who should roast him are Nomzamo Mbatha, Anatii, Itumeleng Khune, Derek Watts, Pearl Thusi and his mother Lynn Forbes.
“Nomzamo because she’s quick with her comebacks and has a lot of spunk in her. She’s still topic from the last roast,” said AKA. “Khune, the guy just knows how to make himself the butt of Twitter jokes, without even realising it.”
