AKA is currently on the giving people the “BHOVAMANIA” experience, but it seems like the road to the soft life has already been met with some not-so-soft bumps on the road.

This past week, AKA finally unveiled his much anticipated going-to-save-the-rap-game EP, “BHOVAMANIA.” The EP was supposed to have unlocked the summer and finally provided hip-hop lovers with the soundtrack back to the culture. However, it has officially been a week and we here at Zalebs hear that maybe Mega has been overtaken by a certain Davido on the charts; and then maybe a certain DJ Zinhle has beaten him on the radio charts. 

So it is safe to say that maybe a certain “the other guy” has beat him with album/ EP sales, as “the other guy’s” album lasted four weeks on top of the charts? But that “L” would not count, considering that AKA takes his win when it comes to merchandise. One thing about the BHOVAMANIA merchandise is that it slaps, and consensus has agreed. The matter is undisputed considering that our other faves really did just give a t-shirt with the album cover on it for over R300.00. 

So after a disappointing EP launch that failed to match the hype of the promotional campaign, fans were all looking forward to the “BHOVAMANIA Full Catalogue One Night Only Never Been Done Before”- yes it is that long a name- experience. A concert that was supposed to take place this past Friday, 13 November 2020. But did it?
At the final hour, AKA released a statement stating that the concert has been postponed. Why you may ask? Well, in part the statement read;

“As we’re sure that you’re already aware, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to the need for social distancing to help prevent the spread. For this reason, the T Effect (management company) and Zone 6 have made the difficult decision to postpone the “BHOVAMANIA Full Catalog One Night Only Never Been Done Before” to Friday, 4th December.”
So a concert planned during the pandemic is postponed due to the pandemic… Make it make sense. But Mega was clearly unbothered as the rapper replaced performing for fans for a night out with girlfriend, Nelli Tembe. The rapper shared an image of the young beauty, suggesting that she is the inspiration behind his confusing newly released banana-flavored Cruz Vodka.  A sweet gesture, but what is the consensus about the drink again?
