AKA, the South African rapper, was in Nairobi recently and gave an electrifying performance.
As African music continues to gain worldwide recognition, artists like AKA are redefining what has originally been African and creating a completely new genre of hip hop music.
The Super Mega hit maker has collaborated with some of top acts in the continent making him one of the most sought-after and highly-paid artists in Africa.
Some of his achievements include winning numerous awards and performing at the BET Awards in Los Angeles.
“The continent is where’s at. It’s the future. If you listen to Drake, if you listen to whoever, people are being influenced by our sound more than ever ever before. So it doesn’t really make sense to look at them when they’re looking at us. We should just continued doing us,” said AKA at a recent interview.
In the interview, the super mega mentioned artists such as Emtee. Da L.E.S., Nasty C, Tellaman among the acts he enjoys listening to.. He’s also proud to be among the pioneers who are pushing hip hop in South Africa and the continent in a truly authentic African way.
AKA’s love for music and performing is just as big as his hits. He still enjoys performing for his fans, as the latest performance at the Blankets and Wine show. You could tell he still enjoys the moment he hits the stage and fans sing along to his many hits.
