One SAMA24 nominee who isn’t all about the awards this time is SA Hip Hop titan, AKA. In fact, the serial-hitmaker doesn’t want fans to vote for him this year in the categories he’s been nominated in.
SupaMega took to social media platform, Twitter, where he penned a series of heartfelt Tweets to his fans. In one of those Tweets, AKA simply hinted at retiring from the game next year.
After all, he had already publicly declared that his upcoming “Touch My Blood” album might be his last.
Only thing is AKA duly stated that his decision not to focus on the SAMAs this campaign wasn’t coming from a place of arrogance. Rather, he’d prefer to concentrate all the energy on next season when he would probably retire on a high.
On a final note, he even suggested performing at the glitzy ceremony or even debuting his new work there. This, he believes would be dope.
Peep the Tweets of AKA below and share your thoughts.
“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 🙏🏼
Who decides what is good, what is worthy, what is timeless and what isn’t. Caiphus song somehow is still week in week out on the radio airplay charts, but it’s not nominated. I’d rather just accept my award for my music on a stage with screaming people everytime i perform it 🙏🏼
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.
APOLOGIES 😭 … someone just called me and told me Caiphus Song, World is Yours & Don’t forget to Pray are all nominated 😂😂😂 … sorry guys 🙏🏼 … I legit didn’t know.
This is not coming from a place of arrogance or thinking I’m better. Your airtime and money and data or whatever might be precious to you, and I don’t want you to waste it on someone who would rather you use it for something or someone else.
Look, it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want to attend or perform at the SAMAs … maybe I should debut my new shit there. That would be sick.” AKA concluded.
