In anticipation of the 25 May album release, AKA teases fans with two covers.
In the run up to his 25 May album release date, AKA initiated a fan project titled the Touch My Blood challenge.
AKA asked fans with a creative spirit to design a front cover for his new album.
Numerous entries streamed in, but the finalists were whittled down to four as of yesterday, 8 May 2018. AKA then announced the winner at around 17:00 on his social media pages.
Over the duration of the challenge fans had debated over the best entry sent in to AKA for consideration.
However, one piece emerged as a steady fan favourite.
The piece by @LonerTK – a visual artist from Rustenburg named Taonga, was the fan favourite to win.
Indeed, @LonerTK was announced as the winner of the Touch My Blood challenge by AKA yesterday.
As winner, the artist will receive an internship at Beam Group. Furthermore, Taonga’s art work will feature as the back cover for AKA new album.
AKA chose the design presented by his team at Beam Group as the front cover for the album.
The rapper then also announced that a top 4 will be chosen today and that these four artists will also be offered internships at Beam Group.
Ok so let’s make a deal … let’s do a top 4 … we have soooo many projects coming up at @BeamGroup_ and we need talented people to help us. So … #TouchMyBloodChallenge 💉
