AKA recently launch his album in Durban. His supporters were showered with Reebok merchandise and envelopes containing money dropped from a helicopter, reported ZAlebs.
Briefly.co.za gathered learnt that AKA tweeted that he did this for all the fans that did not have the finance to support him by buying the album. And for those that just needed a little something to lift their spirits on Youth Day, dropping gifts of @reeboksa gear & envelopes of money.
The rapper has been accused of living a flashy lifestyle, and even poverty shaming.
However, he does give back to other people. AKA has his own scholarship in collaboration with the SAE Institute and Bridges for Music, which covers the full year tuition for SAE’s full-time Higher Certificate in Sound Production at their Cape Town campus.
AKA has a beautiful daughter with DJ Zinhle, Kairo. The two are in a good space and co-parent quiet happily. AKA is an awesome daddy.
