AKA has been pleading poverty and now we know why. He dropped R5 million to make the AKA TV channel happen!
While the AKA TV channel has been labelled as the way forward, it would be silly to be the guinea pig if you don’t have the money to play with.
Briefly.co.za learnt that it cost Supa Mega a whopping R5 million just to get the TV channel up and running – with the mere R49 subscription fee, errrybody in Mzansi better subscribe or he will never make his money back!
In an interview with Ms Cosmo on 5FM’s YouTube TV channel, AKA expressed that he believes it was a good investment as it is his way of staying ahead of the times while others wallow away in 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."
Sparing no cost, AKA explained that he wanted to give subscribers the quality and content they deserved – if you go half in, you get half out.
"We've got another show that we're launching, I can't give you the name of the show right... we've spent about R5 million 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."
