The number one Southern African music star, AKA, premiered his latest single titled The World Is Yours this past Sunday, sending fans and critics into a spin on social media and by all accounts – it was definitely worth the wait.
The multi-award winning rapper performed two brand new songs, on the Idols SA Finale which was viewed by millions, live. In the past, AKA has often attracted a split audience reaction with his body of work – but with this new record its unanimous; the Summer belongs to the SUPA MEGA. AKA goes back to mid-tempo groovy instrumentals, with tight lyrics and personal messaging to fans, making it a beaut.
“The continent has been patiently waiting for a new AKA single for months now, and we are confident The World Is Yours is going to be another continental smash hit for AKA.” says Benza. In fact the song is already rotating on top radio stations in Kenya, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa with more picking it up as you read.
The SUPA MEGA who says “…We the champions, we the champions!” on The World Is Yours is nominated yet again for the “Most Valuable” (MV) South African Hip Hop Award (SAHHA). He has won every MV SAHHA since the awards began. AKA is also the first South African musician to reach 1 Million Twitter followers, his album Levels is certified platinum “…without a vernac record” and he is the first South African musician to feature on the cover of GQ magazine. It can be said that #AKATheWorldIsYours, #AKAChampion.
