AKA doesn't believe that South African hip-hop is dead. The genre has not been doing well since Amapiano became popular in Mzansi.
The yanos are on high rotation on radio and TV. The genre is also one of the most streamed on music streaming platforms which is why many think that local hip-hop is dead.
Some hip-hop artists such as Focalistic, Cassper Nyovest and Reason have dumped rap music and jumped on the trending Amapiano wave. AKA is still representing SA hip-hop and has even dropped a new rap EP with Costa Titch.
