“He is well-known for making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
“Love him or hate him, AKA is a powerhouse of talent and the voice of the youth. In addition to being Mzansi’s most talked about personality, AKA also enjoys winding down to some good food and great company.
“It is this love for all things grilled that gave birth to “The Braai Show with AKA”.
“What better way to get to know some of the country’s most influential and controversial characters than by sharing some steak and chops with them?”, read the statement.
In June, a minute long teaser video was streamed online.
We got to see some of South Africa's popular entertainers including DJ Tira, Moozlie and Sbudaroc chatting to AKA.
Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula also features in the show.
