AKA’s Next Album Will Be His Last

Published

on

AKA confirmed this week through his management that his upcoming third studio album, Touch My Blood, due for release in May 2018,  will also be his last.

The confirmation came just a day after the rapper stunned fans by tweeting that the looming album might mark his departure from releasing any more albums.

SupaMega’s manager, Tshiamo Letswene, confirmed to TshisaLIVE that Touch My Blood will not be getting a sibling. “This is his last album”, he said. “He wants to do other things with his life beyond music. He is a father and a businessman.”

Letswene continued to explain that the 30-year-old hitmaker would be focusing on his business ventures and projects.

And while fans have reacted to the news with shock and defiance, they can continue looking forward to some new music from AKA in the future.  Says Letswene; “He will always be AKA and will dip in and out of music.”

Between Levels and Touch My Blood

The hotly anticipated album is a follow up to Be Careful What You Wish Fora joint project with Anatii. The album spawned a string of massive hits including 10 Fingers, Don’t Forget To Pray, as well the inclusion of the marinated fan fave The Saga.

Since his platinum-selling sophomore Levels album, AKA’s reputation as one of the country’s biggest names in Hip Hop was sustained through a series of singles including The World Is Yours, Caiphus Song, Dreamwork, and amongst others One Time. He also focused on few features throughout this time.

The rapper’s ascent has seen him branch out beyond the music. Amongst other things, he has partnered with global brands as Cruz Vodka and Reebok, left Vth Season to launch his very own Beam Group (to whom Yanga recently got signed), as well as dropped his own range of headphones.

Yet for many fans, all roads still led to his third solo album. AKA revealed mid-2017 that he had begun work on the project. As part of the build-up, he released two singles this year – Star Signs and Sweet Fire.

AKA’s Fela In Versace music video was met with mixed reactions from fans when it premiered on Wednesday.

While die-hard fans are thrilled by the first motion picture from the Touch My Blood album, others are let down by the visual’s aesthetic, creative direction and technical quality.

The video arrived on Wednesday following a promotional drive that began last month, when the rapper first teased fans with lush looking behind the scene photos.

Delighting his social media followers with glimpses of the video, AKA debuted his gold box fade as he showcased his outfit, which included a R25 000 Cornici Balletto print shirt.

Shot in Joburg. the music video centers on showcasing the skhothane subculture, which is defined by, amongst other things, the setting of expensive brands on fire. That happens here in between freeze frame edits that produce these cool body doubles of AKA.

Some fans have slammed the video – likening its “disappointing” quality to that of an amateur Powerpoint presentation, while some have drawn comparisons to rival, Cassper Nyovest’s Tito Mboweni video.

Others are vibing with AKA’s latest music video, complimenting SUPAMEGA for continuing his winning streak
