A couple of weeks ago the 'Star Signs' rapper launched the #TouchMyChallange where fans could submit album concept artworks for his upcoming album.

However, his Beam Group design team also submitted design ideas and then this week AKA made the big announcement and the winner ended up being his in-house team. 

He did give the back cover to one of the fan submissions, but the Twitterverse was very unhappy that after the many creative designs submitted the rapper went with a "wack" cover. 

Some also speculated that AKA used the #TouchMyBloodChallange drum up hype for the upcoming release and already choose his album cover artwork. 

The rapper's management spoke to TsishaLIVE after the backlash to make it clear that they were not trying to scam AKA's fans. 

"We didn't play the people. He simply went with the artwork he thought was best. We understand that people were disappointed, but we have opened up doors for designers. We are meeting with some of the best designers to offer them internships", his manager Tshiamo Letswene said.
