“Always knew you’d be on top again, Supa Mega he on top again…”! Familiar with this line? It’s from AKA’s newest joint, The World Is Yours. The rapper dropped the visuals for this track yesterday and the fans are feeling the beams. There’s a review of the song here.
The video was shot in Phuket, Thailand and was directed by Alessio Bettocchi, AKA & Prince Costinyo. The concept behind it – namely, gaining control of your life and actually reaching for your dreams – is shown in the story of the video.
We see the Supa Mega on a boat sipping on some champagne; we also see him in the market interacting with the locals, to him go-kart racing and just enjoying his time there. We also see some steamy moments between him and his bae, Bonang, and lemme just say that the fans are particularly loving the scenes they share together.
Overall, if the objective of the video was to showcase AKA enjoying himself in Thailand, then it would have been awesome if it was shot documentary style much like his Life On The Road segments.
Plenty of peeps have been poking fun at the video saying stuff like: “Props to Bonang for shooting this”. I mean! Check out reactions to the video from some fans:

ICYMI: Nadia Nakai First SA Female Rapper To Perform AT SXSW Fest In Texas
Nadia Nakai to make history as first female rapper to perform at SXSW fest in Texas
This year is shaping up nicely for most of the artists this year who are starting the year off on a strong foot. With her highly anticipated debut album on the way, Nadia Nakai seems to be carving her own way.
She recently announced that she will be performing at the distinguished international music festival, South By South West (SXSW), in March and she will be the first female from South Africa to do so.
Nadia Nakai is one of the few artists who have been closing major deals last year and began trailblazing her own path outside of music. This includes the Castle Lite advertisement as well as her Bragga fashion line with Sportscene. So it is natural for her 2019 to begin on such a great page.
Bragga went onto her social media to announce that she was chosen to be part of the festival.
“Im SOOO excited!!! I’ve been selected as 1 of the South African artist to showcase at @sxsw in Austin Texas in the United States !!!! I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!”
Over the past year or so Bragga took some time out from dropping music and instead has been doing shows and perfecting her set so we are confident that she will absolutely kill the SXSW set. We also hope that Cassper Nyovest and Tshego also makes an appearance in the show to officially put Family Tree on a global scale.
Earlier last year, she took The Dome by storm when she was announced as one of the opening acts at the Castle Lite Unlocks concert. She shared the stage with Chance The Rapper, Frank Casino and Shane Eagle among many others.
Other artists who have performed and completely impressed at the SXSW festival include Kid X, Kwesta and AKA.
