“I’m looking forward to enjoying LA and the BET’s. It’s a big deal to be nominated amongst Africa’s finest artists at the awards. I’ll be coming straight off the back of my UK tour so it’s going to be nice to have some warm weather for a change. The performance at the BET Hip Hop Around The World Experience is definitely going to be a highlight for me” shares AKA.
