AKA has declared war on student debt and while some thought it was just talk, he has shown he means business.
Student debt is an issue that has plagued many graduates in South Africa and the struggle is real.
AKA has announced a Fees Must Fall Mega Concert to help students who are battling with student debt. Briefly.co.za discovered that the rapper has put his money where his mouth is in the past and donated R100 000 to a WITS university committee to assist with student debt.
Now he has also dropped the date and venue details for the concert - it will be held at The Dome in Johannesburg on 15 February in 2020.
AKA announced during a press conference that the plan is to raise up to R15 million in pledges and donations.
A foundation and corporation will be registered that will make sure that the money is managed and distributed properly.
For now, the line-up is still a mystery but given AKA's connections, it will be one to be remembered.
