"Yup. This is it. This is his last album. He wants to do other things with his life beyond music. He is a father and a businessman.” AKA will turn his attention to his various businesses and to his daughter Kairo.

Briefly.co.za gathered that ‘Touch My Blood” was nearing completion and fans can expect the album to be released in May.

Letswene said fans could expect AKA to release singles and collaborations in the future, but he expressed doubts about a future album.

AKA revealed last year that he did not enjoy working on albums and he found them to be restrictive.

"I will drop a new single this year. I like to make music and‚ to me‚ albums are a bit restrictive‚ but it is what it is. People want albums‚ so I will put my heart into it. Every song is a painting for me and Van Gogh didn't make 12 paintings and then put them in a gallery‚" he said.
