AKA is reaching for new levels in 2016. Levels, of course, refers to the South African rapper’s gold-certified sophomore album. In the two years since its release, AKA, 27, blew up in his home country and has become well known across the continent, especially in Nigeria, where he’s collaborated with a who’s-who of West African pop royalty from Burna Boy and Sarkodie to Wizkid and Ice Prince. Recently, AKA was selected as one of BBC 1Xtra’s “Hot For 2016” artists, a prestigious list that’s predicted the rise of megastars like Chance The Rapper, Sam Smith, Stormzy, The Weeknd and Disclosure.
