AKA says Mzansi hip-hop is not dead
In other entertainment news, Briefly News reported that 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. Speaking during a recent interview on Life With Lebang podcast, the Fela In Versace hitmaker touched on the claims that local rap music is dead.
