Cannot get API Json data to display on Django Template

I am trying to get data from a JSON, which was fetched from an API I created to display on my Django Template.

The API is just a simple API which store a post hit counts and its id, the json is formatted as below:

        "object_pk": 3,
        "hits": 15
        "object_pk": 1,
        "hits": 21

Here is my file:

class BlogListView(ListView):
    model = Post
    template_name = "home.html"

class BlogDetailView(HitCountDetailView, DetailView):
    model = Post
    template_name = "post_detail.html"
    count_hit = True
    data = {
        "hits": get_cloudapi_data(),

class ResumePageView(TemplateView):
    template_name = "resume.html"

And my file, which have the get_cloudapi_data() function:

def get_cloudapi_data():
    url = "my-api-address"
    r = requests.get(url)
    hitcount = r.json()
    return hitcount

Below is my HTML template, post_detail.html used for displaying this data:

{% extends "base.html" %}
{% load hitcount_tags %}

{% block content %}
<div class="post-entry">
    <h2>{{ post.title }}</h2>
    <p> {% get_hit_count for post %} views</p>
    <p> {{ post.body }}</p>

    {% for hit in hits %}

    <p>{{ hit.object_pk }}</p>
    <p>{{ hit.hits }}</p>

    {% endfor %}

{% endblock content %}

It only shows the title, body and the hit count retrieve with the hitcount app not my API data

I have printed out the hitcount and the data if it would help


[{'object_pk': 3, 'hits': 15}, {'object_pk': 1, 'hits': 21}]


{'hits': [{'object_pk': 3, 'hits': 15}, {'object_pk': 1, 'hits': 21}]}

I am new to working with an API with Django, so I am unsure where I went wrong.
