The question "From What?" should be raised each time South African rapper, AKA, announces his retirement. It was first in 2018 when he released his third studio album, Touch My Blood, that he announced he would be retiring. But as we all know, the Supa Mega is still hard in the game. Not only that, but he has another album coming shortly, with the singles, Cross My Heart, the Gemini Major featured "Energy", as well as "Monuments" with Yanga Chief, and DJ Grandmaster Ready D in it.
Taking to twitter today, AKA has yet again announced that he is retiring... But from South African Hip-Hop this time;
Year after I year I compete on the charts against the best that this cowntry ???? has to offer ... DOESNT MATTER WHAT GENRE. SA Hip Hop I’m sorry, but it’s official ... I RETIRE. I kiss you on your forehead. I’m too mainstream, I’m too Supa Mass Mega ... I’m the Makro of this shit.— AKA (@akaworldwide) July 31, 2020
