- AKA is ecstatic that South Africa has moved to lockdown level 2 and alcohol sales have resumed
- The ban on alcohol had shut down one of his lucrative revenue streams and put 100 000's of jobs at risk
- He expressed his joy on social media when President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that alcohol sales would resume
AKA has been championing for the rights of those who work in the alcohol industry, which stood to lose 100 000's of jobs due to the lockdown restrictions.
South Africa has taken a tremendous beating economically under the Covid-19 lockdown.
AKA has his own stake in the alcohol industry with his endorsement of Cruz Vodka which he signed in 2016.
He was also hurt financially by the lockdown, with him not being able to tour or sell his product. He was thrilled when the lockdown was lifted to level 2 and alcohol sales resumed.
AKA's fans reacted to the news that his alcohol was going to back on sale:
"We ready to support you king."
"Let’s get this mix going!"
"Cruz watermelon is first on my list."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that AKA got himself into the dog box which required him buying designer bags to get released from.
His beautiful new bae Nelli Tembe was settling for nothing less and Supa Mega delivered. Often men doing the most questionable things that make females question their existence. Buying their way out of trouble has seemed to work for centuries as women know better than to think it won’t actually happen again.
Briefly.co.za came across an Instagram story which revealed that AKA got himself into a little trouble with Nelli. It is clear to see that AKA may not have turned over an entirely new leaf but it does look like he is at least trying.
The star said he has a team of people who rely on him to make ends meet. He opened up about not being able to perform, tour and sell his product. This means that the star has gone for the past five months without an income.
Supa Mega said while he might be "privileged", the same cannot be said for other artists.
Briefly.co.za has seen so many Mzansi artists open up about their financial struggles since government-imposed lockdown regulations due to the Covid-19 pandemic. AKA tweeted:
"I have a team of people who rely on me, I can’t perform, I can’t sell my product and I cant tour. While I might be privileged, the same cannot be said for so many artists and start ups in this country who have gone for 5 months without income."
