South African hiphop superstar, AKA who is currently sitting at number 1 with his hit single “All Eyes On Me” on Channel O and Trace TV hits the shores of West Africa this month for a tour.
The multiple award-winning rapper will be on a radio and promo tour in Nigeria and Ghana, aimed to connect with his fans and the music industry in Accra and Lagos. The 2-legged West African tour will commence at Industry Nites in Lagos on Wednesday, January 8. AKA then hits Accra’s Rockstone’s Django on January 31 for an outrageously fun and electrifying live music experience.
The 26-year old rapper, songwriter, producer and ultimate entertainer Kiernan Forbes, also known as AKA released his debut album titled ‘Altar Ego’ in 2011 and has been growing a huge fan base across Africa. And with his best selling sophomore offering ‘Levels’, his profile has grown even larger. The album features Nigeria’s Burna Boy, Da LES, Micasa’s J-Something and Ghana’s Sarkodie to mention a few. AKA is signed to Vth Season, a boutique full service entertainment and marketing agency based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Some see AKA as the best African performer of this generation, having shared stages with the likes of Kanye West, D’banj, Rick Ross, Big Sean and more internationally known artists. AKA also plans to connect with other African artists to work some magic in the recording booth. Recently when talking about his latest offering, the rapper mentioned that he is Pan African and wants to be the artist that connects all Africans together through music.
“I want to go anywhere in the world and be the AKA they all know in SADC, to the highest degree,” says the ‘All Eyes On Me’ rapper.
