AKA's Full Bio:

AKA is a South African hip hop recording artist originally from Cape Town.

He was initially part of a group called Entity. They did hit single "Touch N Go". Entity were nominated in 2005 for "Best African Hip Hop" in the KORA Awards and performed during the event. He went on to study sound engineering before choosing to perform. "I decided that’s what I needed to do," says the man dubbed the Prince of South African Rap.

As Entity disbanded in 2006, AKA went on to study sound engineering and later joined Buks and Kamza to form the production collective known as The I.V. League in 2007. His production credits include tracks by PRO, Tuks Senganga, Andile, Shugasmakx, Khuli Chana, Teargas, Psyfo, Jub Jub, Loyiso Bala, Bala Brothers, Jae, JR and Proverb.

In 2009, AKA ventured for a solo career with hits like "Mistakes", "In My Walk" and "Do It" with the latter making it to number 1 on the South African 5FM Top 40. He won Metro FM Music Awards for "Best Newcomer", "Best Hip Hop" as a solo act and "Best Produced Album" for his debut Altar Ego. It is then that he was dubbed "Prince of South African Rap" by one of the national newspapers. He also won "Best Dressed man" during the GQ Awards in South Africa alongside Oscar.

He sealed a multi-album deal with Sony Music through its new local urban label Sound African recordings.

In 2015, aka's sophomore album Levels is available on a vinyl known as a gramophone record.
