AKA – Ranting On Social Media Didn’t Make Me Get Offers
During the present of his new deal with Cruz Vodka, AKA talked to the press, concerning his career and also his retirement plans. Which sounds cool!
He disclosed his break up with Bonang which fueled him to double up on his hustle.
“Another thing, my friends and I always say is that an artist’s best work comes out of their toughest times. And, I started the year on a tough note, you know personally. I don’t wanna talk too much about that, but that also helped me fuel myself to say, ‘Arg, remember who you are and what you are about.”‘
He also talks about the music that has made him toning down his social media rants, being positive and in whole seeing the bigger picture.
“Who knows? Maybe I won’t be hot one day… pshhh probably not. But I feel that I have to prepare for life after music.
“Da Les made me realize that this is about more than music. Shout out to him, because he made me understand that it’s about the brand, as someone pushing a lifestyle and a culture.”
“I don’t know if you guys can recall, but I used to be a bit of a loud mouth… erm… on social media. I wasn’t very mature. So at the time, there wasn’t as many offers or options I have now.
“Everything that we are doing, I’ve realized now – maybe me getting older or being a father – that I am not doing this just for me. I am doing everything the way I am so that that other artist can get the same type of deals. We want to be remembered for what we did, for the industry, for the culture and not just for ourselves.”
