The Megacy can finally rest because hip hop’s main event, BHOVAMANIA, is here! After announcing in late September that he is done with the album, on Friday, November 6, rapper AKA finally released his highly anticipated album, ‘Bhovamania’. Listen to it here.
Inspired by his love for wrestling, on the project fans will find an assortment of tracks to suit their musical needs.

At 13 tracks the album includes features from some of the most notable names including Sho Madjozi, K.O, Yanga Chief, L-Tido and more.
