With his hit single ‘Kontrol’ currently dominating South African radio charts and club single ‘Jealousy’ charting across the continent, AKA is a fixture on the international Hip Hop scene. In 2013 alone, he’s opened for NEYO and Kanye West and performed alongside D’Banj and Kid Cudi.
Previously known as part of Hip Hop group Entity, AKA’s career has gone stratospheric since he set out on his own. 2011 Hit track ‘Victory Lap’ propelled him into the continent’s consciousness, while ‘Jealousy’ cemented his place in the African hip hop firmament and his latest album has only gone on to build his loyal following.
He’s performed in San Francisco, California, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Jamaica and New York in the past few months – outside of a host of continental African engagements. As if performing on the world’s biggest stages weren’t enough, AKA also dabbles in voice over recordings, event MC, music production and is affiliated with the widely-acclaimed SA music production group, IV League.
