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.
Unpopular opinion: Fela in Versace video is weak as the song. Don’t know why people are shocked that the video is disappointing.

Others are vibing with AKA’s latest music video, complimenting SUPAMEGA for continuing his winning streak
The people hating on the Fela In Versace music video are just bitter that AKA actually stamped his authority on who & what is shown (the most) on the video.

K.O Reveals Third Album Details – Everything We Know
K.O has announced his third solo project.
On Monday, K.O delighted fans when he not only announced his long awaited third solo studio album, but also revealed the album artwork, along with the title.
Slated for release on September 27th, K.O’s third solo project is called PTY UnLTD.
Perfectly synchronised to launch along with the looming summer, the album will premiere during the commercial peak of his latest hit, Say U Will, the simmering collaborative joint that saw him team up with the beautiful Nandi Madida.
The songbird has been celebrating her first ever number one, which also marks KO’s successful revival.
PTY UnLTD will also come just months after the Cashtime catalogue was availed across digital streaming platforms earlier this year. “It’s a piece of history we wanted to preserve”, he told QuenchSA in an exclusive interview, in which he also began laying out the elements which will define his next sonic ecosystem.
The sound will not adhere to the trappings of Skhanda, the Hip Hop and Kwaito fusion he masterfully pioneered and popularised with his previous works. It’s a fresh start for K.O, who sees the successes of his recent releases – which includes Supa Dupa – as keys unlocking his next chapter.
“What I have coming up is gonna be appreciated on a large scale, just based on where I am. I think I found my feet again. I can’t wait for people to hear”, he told QuenchSA.
