AKA wants everybody to know that his album, Touch My Blood will be released on the 15th of June
If you didn’t already know that, the giant billboards all around Johannesburg will have informed you.
The first one caught our attention along Bryanston Drive and AKA urged his followers to alert him when they saw this or any other one across the city. The billboard features the album’s signature wine-red colours while Supa Mega’s silhouette is in full view.
The rapper, whose real name is Kiernan Forbes, could barely hide his excitement:
“Drop me a tweet or a snap when you see this or any of the other billboards around the city!!!! THIS IS FOR THE REPUBLIC OF MEGACY!!!! NO GAMES this time around! #TMB N***** IS HURT!!! TRUST ME!!!”

Earlier this week, AKA’s long-time rival revealed that the two will never see eye to eye.
Cassper claimed that he would be willing to reconcile with just about any other rapper in local hip hop except that “broer”
Don’t make this about me and AKA. That one will never happen. I mean it from the bottom of my heart. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!!! It’s gone too far. I’m talking about the rest of SA hip hop. Ain’t nobody I don’t mind reconciling with and building with except the broer. LETS BUILD!!! https://t.co/4oBICp4gj5
