Johannesburg - South African musician AKA has said he will be holding a concert early next year dubbed  'Fees For All' which is aimed at raising funds for students in need. 

The Supa Mega's upcoming concert aims to help alleviate the country's overflowing student debt.

It will raise funds for varsity students in debt or who can't afford university fees, with a target of between R10m and R15m.

The much-awaited concert will take place on February 15, 2020 at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg.

 AKA held a press conference last Friday to promote the event and explained how he would meet the target.

“I'm a musician and I've been doing this for a long, long time and I never went to tertiary, but I always thought like, this student fees is a cause that I am very into and very passionate about. I then thought, what if I performed, did a free concert and took all the proceeds and all those brands took the same energy and maybe we raise about R10m for students who wanted to become something one day?"

The host of the press briefing, Hulisani Ravele, added that the concert was not a public relations stunt.

“The concert is about building, furthering one individual and building generations to come,” she said. 

Tickets for the show will be available for purchase at Webtickets from December 5.
