South African superstar rapper AKA has released the new video for "Fela In Versace," the clear standout from his latest record Touch My Blood, which dropped earlier this year. AKA has mentioned this will be his last album.
"Fela In Versace," which has been at the #1 spot for 3 consecutive weeks on the Metro FM SABC charts, sees AKA linking up with Nigeria's Kiddominant, who penned the chorus and catchy beat to this track.
As its title implies, the song sees AKA comparing himself to greats like Fela and Madiba, "Fela in Versace, Mandela in a 'Rari," he shouts. The song's boosted by Kiddominant's addictive chorus hook in which, among other things, he boasts of "Doing 240 on Lekki Epe" expressway in Lagos.
During his listening session for Touch My Blood, AKA mentioned he would "shoot a corny Naija-type video for this one," speaking of "Fela In Versace."
