AKA dominates SA Hip Hop Awards and wins 4 awards
Africa’s Hip Hop Prince, AKA dominated the SA Hip Hop Awards and took home 4 awards!! His Levels album changed the SA Hip Hop landscape in a massive way in the past 3 years. AKA has penned songs that got people interested in SA Hip Hop and not just any SA Hip Hop but English hip hop. Now for people who follow the genre , SA Hiphop over the past 7 years or so has been predominantly vernacular and Motswako to be more specific .
AKA’s radio success from singles such as Kontrol and Jealousy changed the scene so much that he has paved the way for non vernacular rapping artists and that’s something worth noting. The production on levels is on point. One other thing Levels did was expose SA Hiphop to a broader African audience through his collaborations with artists from Nigeria and Ghana, and that added so much value and exposure for the SA hip hop and because of that the album he definately deserved the albums.
