For over five years Kiernan "AKA" Forbes has been a dominant force in the music industry as well as pop culture, within South Africa and beyond our borders. All this MEGA success has been achieved with the support and assistance of his now previous management and record label Vth Season.
In December 2016, AKA announced the birth of his own company, BEAM GROUP. BEAM was set up to manage all things related to the brand AKA - which saw him hire some of the country's top young executive minds to push his vision forward.
"The process of establishing BEAM from scratch has not been easy, but has been liberating as I have a great business team to lean on. Over the years I have been learning and receiving mentorship from some of the country's most successful business minds. Thus BEAM's focus is not just music, as my ultimate aim is to be a multi-investor, with success in different industries," explains Supa Mega.
It is with this growth and support structure that AKA and Raphael Benza of Vth Season, mutually part ways in all forms of their business relationship, as of June 1st, 2017.
AKA says, "I have the utmost respect for the Vth Season team. Together, we created magic. I have learnt a lot from the music industry and it's time for me to start building my own legacy and become South Africa's first Music Mogul."
Good luck with the Beams and on your new journey Supa Mega. Punish them!
