With just a few weeks standing between us and what may be AKA's final album, the rapper took some time off to talk about his recent #SAMA24 nominations.
The #SAMA24s are literally around the corner and the nominees this year have set many precedents. Now with off SA's artists trying to get a piece of that pie AKA is letting the kids have fun. He's sitting this one out.
Hi guys. Please don't waste any of your money voting for me with ANY of my recent SAMA nominations. We'll concentrate our efforts on the awards next year maybe.— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
He went on to clarify that this is not coming from a spiteful place, rather that he wants people to save their data, airtime and energy for next year.
Next year we'll go hard for the awards since it's the last one. Then we can all be happy and ride off into the sunset.— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
He went on to tell the people where his true reward is and that is the love and adoration of the people brought on by their love for his music.
As much as I appreciate the acknowledgement ... "The World is Yours" has been nominated for instance ... I think I have already won the award for making that timeless record. It will live in your hearts forever, until you die. That's enough for me 🙏🏼— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
I really really do appreciate the nominations and acknowledgement ... i don't take it for granted 🙏🏼 ... I just feel like I've already been rewarded and awarded for my work.— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
Ncaw, a moment of softness from the Supa Mega. We rarely get those. Maybe this is brought on by the sudden realisation that it all might be coming to an end. Whatever it is, we do hope that his die-hard fans are going to push 'Touch My Blood' to its deserved place in history.
