AKA is entering the festive season with more than a bang. A new EP, a new braai show and a new flavoured vodka added to his name.
The Supa Mega rap star titled the EP, released this week, Bhovomania.
He reckons it’s a fresh set of hits to cruise South Africans into the silly season.
The latest collaboration with the Cruz brand, sees a banana flavoured called Cruz Banana Deluxe, with a hint of vanilla, dressed in an iconic yellow bottle.
This announcement comes after the success of CRUZ Watermelon, a flavour still reigning as one of the fastest-growing vodka flavours in South Africa.
The rapper, whose real name is Kiernan Forbes, said: “I wanted to create a Banana flavoured vodka because it has never been done before. It’s always about the vibes and taking it to the next level. If I put my name on it, you best believe I’m bringing my A-game on it.
The limited-edition drink will be available from November 23 at various retailers.
SABC 1 also announced that the 13-part talk show titled The Braai Show with AKA will start airing on the channel starting tomorrow, Thursday, 12th November 2020 in the 7.30 primetime spot.
