AKA said, “If you looking at the times we living on with the pandemic, a lot of people (are) at home. People need music, people need inspiration and the people need something from the heart, like in a set of a song. South African hip hop is (in) a transitional phase. And I’ve always been that person to come up with quality music, something to say and something to get off my chest."
He continued, “Dropping three singles was really about - if you take those three singles that’s really one single in the run-up to my album. The album is gonna come out in the next few months."
It's awesome to see AKA and Sizwe getting along again - the pair had an epic social media feud just a couple of months ago. Briefly.co.za reported that Sizwe had even threatened to put hands on AKA.
Mega eventually apologised to Sizwe and his family. He said he had a change of heart after being educated on Sizwe's family's role in the fight against apartheid.

In other news, Briefly.co.za recently reported that Mzansi was still not satisfied after DJ Maphorisa cleaned up his kitchen. The star's posted another picture of his kitchen looking spotless, and even added SMEG items.
However, Twitter trolls were still not happy. Phori had previously come under fire for posting a picture with dirty dishes in the sink of, what some called, a small kitchen.
The star eventually caved in to social media pressure and cleaned up, plus bought new (and expensive) kitchenware. After Maphorisa endured yet another round of criticism, DJ Shimza let Phori know that tweeps will never be satisfied, so he should just let them be.
