Its definitely time to “Congratulate” AKA as he continues to push the boundaries of South African hip hop. In the past year, he has put out a top album and managed to break into other African countries. He’s made it clear his goal is go international as he’s tired of the way the South African market treats its artists.
Yesterday, AKA was nominated for a prestigious BET Award in the “Best International Act: Africa” category. He was joined by fellow South Africans The Soil as well as other acts from the continent such as Nigeria’s Wizkid.
The awards show will take place on June 28th in Los Angeles.
