The rapper has taken to Twitter to air his views about shirtless snaps that have set tongues wagging.

Rapper AKA has taken to Twitter to address rumours of him being gay after pictures of “him” dancing shirtless with another man went viral online over the weekend.

The images led to a lot of fans and followers to speculate whether or not AKA (real name Kiernan Forbes) was gay or at the very least bisexual. The fact that AKA seemed to be wearing just his underwear in the picture only added fuel to the fire.

AKA additionally pointed out that his level of fame was such that if he had stripped down to his briefs, there would be more than just a couple of pictures of him doing it.
