AKA released an official statement revealing why his name will be removed from the Cruz Watermelon bottle.
A few weeks ago, there was chaos on social media after a bottle of the aforementioned alcohol brand was without the rapper’s name.
Taking to social media on Monday, the rapper explains why the initial event occurred; he said there’s been an adjustment made following his request that Cruz should remove his name from the watermelon bottles because he plans to launch his own spirit brand in the future.
The brand has accepted the rapper’s request and he’s grateful for their understanding, as he remains an integral part of the Cruz family and a valued business partner.
“A good day in the office today- while the Cruz brands will forever remain both in my heart and my bar, I’ve taken the decision to evolve my business and will be launching my own spirit brand in the near future. As such my name will be removed from the Cruz Watermelon bottle, and Banana will exit in summer,” AKA captioned post.
“Much love to the @cruzvodka Family for their understanding and for supporting this new chapter of my life,” he added.
