Titch passed away barely one month after it was made public that he had signed a global deal with Akon’s record label, Konvict Kulture, following the release of the remix to his viral hit, “Big Flexa.” Once the song was extensively shared on TikTok and people started coming up with their challenges to the song, it attracted a lot of attention.
Titch recently revealed why the cooperation with Akon persuaded him to sign a recording contract, claiming he intends his music to gain a reach outside South Africa. Titch individually decided to stay an independent rapper throughout his burgeoning music career.

Titch performed on Saturday at the Ultra South Africa music event in Johannesburg. Videos published on social media reveal the rapper temporarily losing consciousness, getting up to continue performing, and then appearing to do so again as staff raced to his side.
Even though he has received a lot of exposure recently thanks to TikTok, it only did make sense for him to work with Akon to advance his rap career. He said I’ve always wanted to work with a large label rather than signing with one, adding that he had always wanted to be independent.
“Following the success of my 2022 collection, we thought it was time to collaborate with a global organisation so we may keep breaking down borders on a global level. So when Konvict offered the chance, we sensed it was destined to be. It also proves, in my opinion, that everything you put your mind to may materialise.
