Remember AKA’s pledge to share his Covid-19 recovery journey with everyone while in self-isolation “as he aims to be as transparent as possible”? Well, he wasn’t kidding….

Not only did the rapper make headlines for announcing he was Covid-19 positive, and now claiming he’s beat the deadly virus, but he has also managed to find a way to get a TV deal of sorts of his self-recovery journey

From Wednesday onwards, fans can watch AKA’s Covid-19 diaries which will air on MTV Base (DStv channel 322) and BET (DStv channel 135).

“I just beat Coronavirus’ ass like it owed me money. Wait … It does owe me money!!! Praise God, and thank you @nelli_tembe for all the hard work,” posted AKA in reference to his 21-year-old girlfriend on Wednesday.
