AKA on Sama nods: Please don't waste any of your money voting for me
The rapper has no beef with the Samas, he apparently just has no time for awards
Listen up fam, AKA does not want you to waste that hard earned guap on voting for him ahead of this year's Samas.
The rapper bagged nominations in the Record Of The Year category for Caiphus Song, World is Yours and Don't Forget to Pray.
AKA said he was not being arrogant and that he appreciated the recognition, but felt like he had already been rewarded for his work.
Hi guys. Please don't waste any of your money voting for me with ANY of my recent SAMA nominations. We'll concentrate our efforts on the awards next year maybe.— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
This is not coming from a place of arrogance or thinking I'm better. Your airtime and money and data or whatever might be precious to you, and I don't want you to waste it on someone who would rather you use it for something or someone else.— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
While I appreciate and thank the SAMAs for the nominations, right now I'm just not focused on campaigning for votes to win awards.— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
AKA also made it clear that has no beef with the Samas but just didn't have time right now to focus on the awards.
For the record I don't have any issues with the SAMAs, in fact I don't have any issues with anyone right now 😊 ... I would just like myself and the Megacy to focus on the next few months as they pertain to music/ music videos/ product/ deals etc 🙏🏼— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
As much as I appreciate the acknowledgement ... "The World is Yours" has been nominated for instance ... I think I have already won the award for making that timeless record. It will live in your hearts forever, until you die. That's enough for me 🙏🏼— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
I really really do appreciate the nominations and acknowledgement ... i don't take it for granted 🙏🏼 ... I just feel like I've already been rewarded and awarded for my work.— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
Look, it doesn't mean I wouldn't want to attend or perform at the SAMAs ... maybe I should debut my new shit there. That would be sick.— AKA (@akaworldwide) May 3, 2018
