AKA has been selected to perform at the OkayAfrica exclusive invite only event, Africa In The 6, in Toronto, Canada, this Friday, 12 February 2016. OkayAfrica presents their first edition of Africa In The 6 as they head out to Toronto for the upcoming NBA All Star Weekend. The event features AKA and DJ Fanatic representing South Africa, and Everyday People’s DJ Moma representing Sudan.
AKA’s inclusion in this exclusive event comes just after being tipped by BBC Radio 1Xtra as someone to watch in 2016. BBC Radio 1Xtra’s release of their “HOT FOR 2016” list last month saw AKA as the only African based artist to feature on the coveted annual tip list, which has previously featured the likes of Drake and Sam Smith.
2015 crowned AKA as the official KING OF SA RADIO and the momentum at which AKA has started 2016 has definitely set a precedent to what is surely going to be another ground breaking year for the #3RDWRLDBOSS. AKA’s latest single BADDEST received 3 nominations at the Metro FM awards for Best Hit Single, Best Remix and Best Collaboration, the song has held the number 1 spot on the South African music charts for 3 weeks running.
