AKA has hit the ground running after recovering from Covid-19. The star is back in the gym ahead of his much-anticipated boxing match with his arch-rival and fellow rapper Cassper Nyovest.
The Fela In Versace hitmaker took to social media on Monday, 20 July to share a video of himself hard at training. He revealed that it was his first session after recovering from the coronavirus earlier this month.
One of AKA's fans, @Mike_M_Masamba, said he loved the star's "improvement on speed and technique". The tweep further said that if AKA can keep this up for 36 minutes straight Mufasa "won't stand a chance".
AKA replied to @Mike_M_Masamba:
"Thanks. First day back after beating Covid... It was tough."
Briefly.co.za reported that Cassper confirmed the boxing match in June during an interview with DJ Speedsta on Metro FM.
"We need to meet in the ring. That's all I want. It's too late for apologies," Cass said.
AKA went on a Twitter rant in March this year aimed at trying to force Cassper to sign the match contract. Supa Mega revealed the two arch-rivals were negotiating a contract with EFC for them to hold a boxing match in September. In his rant, Mega even dissed Mufasa's parents in an effort to make him sign the contract.
Mufasa then told a fan on social media that he would never be "great friends" with Supa Mega after he hit him below the belt with the tweet about his parents
AKA explained that they both stand to make between R5 million and R8 million each from the match.
