Hi I just want to know, why Channel AKA rejects peoples videos and doesn't refund the admin charges. A lot of people think its a scam to maximise on Channel AKA's income.

As A producer I think its grossly unfair to reject peoples videos without providing a reason & pocket their money.

What evidence do we have that you have even watched the videos fully anyway?

Well, I had to create this message to inform everyone that my first official song The Thunderdahmaan Song is a hit. Although the video has not been selected to be play listed on TV it is actually rated as one of the top 5 videos on channel AKAs web site. The video is listed as top five next to Devlin who is a current urban MC and UK leading MC Dappy from N dubz. This is a great achievement. My plans for the future are to make more ground breaking video and get them playlisted on television. I will also be working on the Thunderdahmaan song video in the hope that it will be play listed. Fingers crossed. We will see.
Url for video

Check Thunderdahmaan on youtube.

Remember thunderdahman song on I Tunes.
