AKA's first ever performance at #OrchestraOnTheSquare was quite the hit among social media fans as well as fellow artists.
The hip-hop sensation pulled the grandest musical concert of the year with an orchestra in Pretoria on the weekend.
AKA made history on Sunday as the first hip-hop act to share a stage with a 30-piece orchestra.
Not only fans, but also fellow Mzansi rappers, praised AKA for giving SA hip-hop such a forceful name in the global industry. Check out the tweets below:
According to SA Hip Hop Mag, the concert was attended by various deejays, rappers and a 30-piece orchestra of musicians who all performed their best, leaving the audience with goosebumps. Fans took to social media, calling on AKA to make this an annual event or hold concerts in other cities across the country.
AKA will continue with his Megacy Over Everything tour, which commenced last Friday in Cape Town, but will soon visit Johannesburg and Durban. He is super-busy working on a new album which he hasn't revealed too much about, but only hinted that it will feature the likes of Rouge, Gemini Major and Sjava and could be released under a new name, King Forbes.
Rappers from DJ Tira, Nasty C to KwestaDakar and K.O were at the event and applauded AKA.
Yesterday, Briefly.co.za reported that fans were overwhelmed with the entire #OrchestraOnTheSquare event.
AKA has played an integral role in the South African hip-hop landscape over the past decade. He has been a standout musical act across all genres in SA and across the African continent for the last five years.
He took to social media early this morning to thank his fans and hinted that there could possibly be a another concert of this nature in the near future. He wrote: "Till the next one" on Twitter.
