AKA is one of South Africa's most popular rappers, the star has been in the entertainment industry for several years and since his debut as part of a rap trio years ago, he has managed to solidify himself as a superstar.
After his dramatic exit from Vth season a couple of months ago, AKA started Beam Group and according to his recent tweets, the rapper is shutting it down. Take a look at the tweets below:
Unfortunately I also have to announce that Beam Group now no longer represents or manages me in ANY capacity. While I remain the owner of the company, I’m actually in the process of shutting it down.— AKA (@akaworldwide) October 1, 2018
We started the company with the best of intentions, unfortunately it’s just not working out for me the way I wanted it to ... so I’m taking my ball and going to play elsewhere.— AKA (@akaworldwide) October 1, 2018
AKA went on to explain that this is how business is:
That’s business ya know, you try ... you fail, you get up, you dust yourself off and you keep it moving.— AKA (@akaworldwide) October 1, 2018
The truth is, AKA is really the “company”. So having a company is actually quite pointless since I’m AKA.— AKA (@akaworldwide) October 1, 2018
In 2017, Beam Group was accused of being Xenophobic by AKA's former manager, Raphael Benza, a claim they vehemently denied.
Speaking to Tshisa Live at the time, AKA said, "it is important for people to know all sides of the story. The company is out of money. The emails were sent when I was in the process of leaving the company because funds were being mismanaged. Everybody can see that I am better off now than when I was at Vth Season. For me, the timing is questionable. When Vth Season is strapped for cash, they want to bring it to light. I don't understand."
