Multiple award winning South African artist, AKA, is set to headline the Imperio Hip Hop Sensation 2015 event in Maputo, Mozambique on Saturday, 29 August 2015. This will be his first time performing in Mozambique and is billed on the line-up as the only South African act.
His traction to be booked to headline events in other countries is just testament to the numerous reasons why AKA is considered as one of the leading hip hop forces on the continent.
He has received multiple award nominations to back this up. Most recently a BET Best International Act (Africa) nomination; MTV Base Africa Music Award nominations for Best Male and Best Collaboration (which he won for All Eyes On Me); four AFRIMMA nominations for Best Rap, Best Male Southern Africa, Best Collaboration (All Eyes On Me) and Best Video of The Year (Congratulate); and a Nigerian Entertainment Award nomination for Best African Artist (only South African to be nominated).
