AKA has decided to talk abreast of the difficulty he’s facing currently.
However, tons of South African artists have faced challenges like this but it seems it’s really gotten to AKA which made him voice out.
The star stated that he has been having financial struggles during this Covid-19 pandemic.
AKA reveals that he has not been ready to get any income for five months as he has not gone to perform at any show, continue tours or maybe sell his product.
The rapper also told his fans that he has folks that believe him for ends meet and he’s not happy because he has not been ready to provide for them since the lockdown
Supa Mega said while he could be “privileged“, an equivalent can’t be said for other artists.
AKA tweeted: “I have a team of individuals who believe me, I can’t perform, I can’t sell my product and that i cant tour. While i’d be privileged, an equivalent can’t be said for therefore many artists and begin ups during this country who have gone for five months without income.”
I have a team of people who rely on me, I can’t perform, I can’t sell my product and I cant tour. While I might be privileged, the same cannot be said for so many artists and start ups in this country who have gone for 5 months without income #SaveMyLivelihood
