Over the weekend the rapper tweeted about the “no appearance” and fans were quick to slam him but his spokesperson, Krystal Thorpe told Tshisa LIVE that the star had been caught up with commitments in New York. Adding that: “He was never billed to perform, but just as an appearance.”
“AKA’s sole purpose for his current trip to the US was for his responsibilities as a Reebok ambassador. Everything else was secondary to that. Unfortunately, work for [the] client was unforeseeably extended and he could not depart New York in time to make his appearance in Washington DC,” explained Thorpe.
“His booking agent is in engagement with the event promoter, as AKA is still in the US, to work out a favourable solution for the event and his fans.” She said.
