AKA parts ways with his own company, Beam Group
Local rapper AKA announced he has left his own company, Beam Group, and that they no longer represent him.
In a series of tweets, AKA said that Beam Group no longer represents him or manages him "in any capacity" and while he is the owner he is in the process of shutting it down.
Unfortunately I also have to announce that Beam Group now no longer represents or manages me in ANY capacity. While I remain the owner of the company, I’m actually in the process of shutting it down.— AKA (@akaworldwide) October 1, 2018
Supa Mega then stated that while he and his business partners had the best of intentions, things were not working out the way he wanted to and he's taking his ball and playing somewhere else.
We started the company with the best of intentions, unfortunately it’s just not working out for me the way I wanted it to ... so I’m taking my ball and going to play elsewhere.— AKA (@akaworldwide) October 1, 2018
That’s business ya know, you try ... you fail, you get up, you dust yourself off and you keep it moving.— AKA (@akaworldwide) October 1, 2018
The "Fela in Versace" ended his announcement by saying that is own brand is a company, therefore he doesn't see the point of having a company.
The truth is, AKA is really the “company”. So having a company is actually quite pointless since I’m AKA.— AKA (@akaworldwide) October 1, 2018
This comes as a surprise to most fans as the rapper left his former label and management company, Vth Season, in 2016 to launch Beam Group.
