AKA has lifted the lid on his new online platform AKA TV, revealing how he dropped R5m for a show on the app.
The Supa Mega launched the platform last week which will cost Megacy fans a monthly subscription fee of R49.
In an interview AKA explained the concept was his way of staying ahead during the lockdown.
“AKA TV was put together without the thought of quarantine or this whole thing happening. It just so happens that you’ve got to stay prepared and stay ahead of the curve.
“It was something that I’ve always wanted to do… it just so happened that the whole thing came, and now it looks like I planned this whole thing which I did but I did not plan for it to work out like this.”
AKA revealed how he spent serious racks in order to give his fan base the content they deserve, including a show that cost him millions to make.
“We’ve got another show that we’re launching, I can’t give you the name of the show right… we’ve spent about R5m on this show.
“So, it’s actual TV production just like a Channel O and MTV Base would do but this time it’s on an AKA platform. For me to keep people interested, a TV level quality show is going to be the only way we keep people coming back for more.”
AKA also promised his fans he’d be dropping brand new episodes on his channel this week, giving fans a snippet of a live session.
Before he announced his TV channel, AKA came back from a young hiatus from the socials, bearing two new songs for the streets.
The first song, titled God Is King, is a trap-like jam that’s reminiscent of the club vibe.
The second snippet that the Mega shared was Soft Reference which received somewhat mixed reviews, with many wondering what kind of vibe AKA was pushing.
