Published

AKA Performance




Fresh from scooping an international award in Nigeria, AKA announced that he will be serenading his fans with hits supported by his band and a 30-piece Orchestra. Unheard of in the South African hip hop landscape to date, Kiernan Forbes aims to break the mold and create history by merging the two musical worlds together. No stranger to breaking record, the Fela in Versace hitmaker will draw inspiration from the 10 years his spent in the game churning hit after hit.

Taking to his social media platforms, the SUPA MEGA expressed how he feels he has amassed enough hits from his three studio albums and the joint album with Anatii to make the night a memorable one.

While currently on a sabbatical, AKA makes his announcement via his Instagram page. For now, his teased us with a save-the-date post, with supporting acts and additional information soon to follow.

You can get your ticket to the AKA Orchestra On The Square from Computicket online and at all outlets nationwide. Tickets will set you back between R200 – R450 per ticket. What a time to be alive!

Boity Has No Janu-Worries Whatsoever!

Boity enters the new year with a case full of money!!!

Boity No Janu-Worries

If Boity Thulo’s Instagram page is to be taken at face value, the lady is rolling in a pile of money. While some of us are counting down the days till we get paid, Boity strides around with a case full of Randelas like its nothing! Granted, the stills are taken from the recent video of her rap debut single titled ‘Wuz Dat‘ featuring Nasty C, the timing couldn’t be better. Yet another reminder of how empty our pockets are.

2019 – The year of securing the bag! 💰👑 | 📷: @d2_visuals (Link to #WuzDat music video on bio)

A post shared by Boitumelo Thulo (@boity) on

 

The caption of the picture perfectly illustrates what her objective is for the turn of the year. 2018 was a considerable success for the multitalented artist, despite coming short of winning the best collabo award at the South African Hip Hop Awards in December. Although the gong went to Kwesta for his single Spirit with Grammy-nominated artist Wale, it was the first nomination for the rapper in a short space of time. She released the visuals for her single two weeks ago, and the clip has garnered just over 413 000 views already.

If you haven’t seen the video, the link to the YouTube channel is available on Boity’s social media bio. The video features the rapper reciting her lyrics while roaming the streets of Johannesburg in a Lamborghini. If her debut single is anything to go by, Boity has a promising musical career ahead of her.

Yeses!!! 📷 : @d2_visuals

A post shared by Boitumelo Thulo (@boity) on

The former Rockville star has been tight-lipped about her next release or details about artists she will work with on her album. It should be said though that she came out the gates swinging, and topping this single will be no easy task. We wait with bated breath to see what unfolds. In the meantime, you can find out where she’ll be performing next through her social media accounts.
