At the Vth Season #VthVibrations dinner at Eat @LM restaurant in Illovo earlier this week, the Supa Mega was awarded new plaques for 6 singles and 2 albums, creating new sales benchmarks for SA Hip Hop.

AKA’s sales milestones now include:

  • GOLD selling status for single Energy
  • 3 x PLATINUM selling status for Touch My Blood album
  • 10 x PLATINUM (DIAMOND) selling status for LEVELS album
  • 53 x PLATINUM (5 x DIAMOND) selling status for single Dreamwork
  • 19 x PLATINUM (1 X DIAMOND) selling status for single All Eyes On Me
  • 18 x PLATINUM (1 X DIAMOND) selling status for single One Time
  • 12 x PLATINUM (1 X DIAMOND) selling status for single Caiphus Song
  • 10 x PLATINUM (1 X DIAMOND) selling status for single The World Is Yours

AKA is a true hit-maker and has shattered all sales records for SA Hip Hop. Most notably, achieving this status as an English speaker rapper, whom many deemed had no room for success in the South African music landscape.  10 years in the making, the numbers don’t lie, AKA is South Africa’s greatest selling Hip Hop act,” shares Raphael Benza of Vth Season.

Off the back of announcing his large stake in Durban based lounge and restaurant, Cuba BLK, and releasing a first of its kind Cruz Vodka Banana flavour, AKA continues to be a leader and trend setter in the music industry, paving the way for others.
