Cape Town – AKA won’t be performing at Back to the City music festival this year because the organisers aren’t making a big enough deal of him.
According to the post AKA pulled out of the line-up after noticing that international acts were getting more exposure than him on the flyers and posters promoting the event.
He wrote: “Instead of what we had agreed upon, my name was confined to what I can only describe as minor details on the flyer.
“I consider myself an International act. I have the tours‚ awards‚ following and most importantly the live show and music to prove it. With all due respect to Elzhi‚ Jay Live‚ Skyzoo & Camp Lo‚ I will not allow an artist like myself to be reduced to a minor detail.”
Meanwhile the rapper is praising his new bae, Bonang, for his newfound zen presence and professionalism on social media.
In a recent Instagram post he wrote: "I always had style, I guess now I have the money and made the connections to dress nice. I'm in close proximity to someone who has made me rethink what it means to be a 'brand'. I used to have shitty social media management for instance .... I've just picked up a few things from her, observed, and made them my own. That's what happens when great people come together. Inspiration."
