Rapper AKA is not thrilled about fans crying hysterically when meeting him for the first time.

Fans sometimes go wild when seeing the stars and we seldom know how they really feel when we fangirl over them.

A video of a fan freaking out when meeting the star went viral this week.

Taking to Twitter, AKA said the encounter was OTT.

“Falling to your knees and crying your eyes out as a grown man when you meet me is a bit over the top. Pull yourself together, man.”

It was all jokes for some of his fans, while others didn't quite find it funny

“Nikka was showing you major love as a fan. Well, maybe he overreacted a little, but at the end of the day it's all love. And you made fun of him? Is that how you treat your fans?” asked one follower.

Most celebs have similar encounters with their fans and social media is here to archive those moments. 

Rapper Siyabonga “Big Zulu” Nene took to his Instagram timeline to reflect on an experience when fans screamed and shouted his name and one fan was brought to tears when hugging him for the first time.

Another fan was star struck after meeting amapiano sensation Uncle Waffles at a gig. In the video of the incident, the fan can be seen crying and telling DJ Waffles he loved her and he was going to marry her.
