The reason AKA never flashed money

At the height of his beef with Cassper Nyovest many fans were of the consensus that AKA made way better music compared to his nemesis Cassper Nyovest.

One thing Mufasa was highly commended for was his business acumen. During an interview on The Episode on YouTube, the late rapper disagreed with this notion.

He argued that it is all public perception.

“I think that it’s all about perception. I don’t there should be any debate about how much money we have made.”


AKA revealed that he made many millions from his partnership with Cruz Vodka.

“We have made millions and millions through Cruz Vodka. The. The difference is that I don’t really talk about my business moves that much and the working of it that much because I don’t believe that’s the right thing to do in business – you don’t talk about numbers in public.”

The rapper attributed his relationship with money to his upbringing.

“If that’s how somebody else wants to go about with their business its up to them. But you never going to hear me talking about you, we just did 20 million.”

The passing of South African rapper AKA is one that as a nation we are struggling to come to terms with. The Supamega had been entertaining us for years, serving us timeless hits such as Fela In Versace and Congratulate to name a few.

AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes was gunned down outside a restaurant in Durban with his friend Tebello Tibz Motsoane.

In one of his last interviews with Slikour which came out about a month ago, AKA told Slikour that he had been nurturing his relationship with God.

He had been building a relationship with God over the last couple of years.

“I don’t want to sound like one of those Christians, but I definitely spent more time with God over the last year or two. As Kanye would say, you got to find God fam. So that’s what I did.”


The Supamega had been taking things one day at a time and appreciating life.

“God and family, just taking things in its stride because for me, any success right now I’ve already gone through the worst, so anything right now is kind of a bonus.

“I’m just happy to be alive, flourishing, and still having my family. I’m going to do it for them.”
