AKA rocked these twists during a visit to Malawi in February. 

The bun fade

There's the man bun and then there is the bun fade. The latter has been rocked by male stars such as Jason Derulo, Collin Farrell, Omarion, and now AKA.

AKA shocked his fans this month when he straightened his Jheri curls to take part in the 'Not the Bangyang' challenge. The challenge is typically used to express people's dislike for hairstyles with bangs. 

AKA has zero bangs but could not resist participating. He should have sat this challenge out though, because social media users likened his blowout to Lord Farquaad's signature hairdo.
