AKA cashes in on his Covid-19 journey with new show

From today onwards, fans can watch AKA’s Covid-19 diaries which will start airing today on MTV Base and BET.


Remember AKA’s promise to share his recovery journey with everyone while in self-isolation “as he aims to be as transparent as possible about his journey with Covid-19”?

Well, he wasn’t kidding. Not only has the rapper found a way to share his self-isolation journey with as many people as possible, but he has also managed to find a way to get a TV deal of sorts out of it.

From today onwards, fans can watch AKA’s Covid-19 diaries which will start airing today 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.
