AKA, returned to the USA this time for a performance in New York where he was yet again the only African musician included on the line-up.
AKA’s 4th of July performance at the Everyday People’s #EverydayAfrique event was well received by all in attendance with numerous people taking to social media to express their awe and appreciation of his set.
The #EverydayAfrique event media partner, Okay Africa, also took to social media to express how “epic” the event was with South Africa’s AKA.
AKA was interviewed on US show, Sway In the Morning and the hashtag #AKAOnSway was the number 1 trending topic in South Africa.
AKA gave a very candid interview and a freestyle which indicated why he is South Africa’s number 1 hip hop artist, as corroborated by Sway himself saying: “You’re the number 1 artist in South Africa”.
AKA’s new single One Time was also played during the interview. The single is available on iTunes.
This is just the beginning of AKA’s growing footprint in the USA and South Africans can expect more representation from AKA in this territory as AKA is about to embark on a USA tour in the last quarter of this year.
