Often controversial and confrontational, you can’t deny the fact that AKA is hugely talented. AKA kicked off his solo career in 2009; though he’s been buzzing in the South African Hip-Hop scene for a while, he grabbed the attention of the continent with his critically acclaimed single – “Jealousy” in 2012.
AKA has to be the busiest rapper in Africa this year. He was booked for shows across the continent nearly every weekend all year long. He recently headlined Loud N Proud in Lagos with support from his usual collaborator and A-team affiliate Burna Boy.
AKA was nominated for Best International Act in three of the biggest award shows (BET, M.O.B.O, EMAs), He won the best male category at the SAMA and Best Collaboration at the MTV Mama Awards, also grabbing two more awards at #AFRIMMA2015. His sophomore album “Levels” was certified gold in June 2015.
His latest single “Baddest” is currently enjoying massive spins across the continent.
In truth, if AKA is your #1 pick as the hottest rapper in Africa for the year 2015, you’re probably right. That’s how massive he’s been this year.
