His hit single ‘The World is Yours’ has now been certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry of South Africa (RISA). This means AKA has sold more than 90 000 copies of the single.
Briefly.co.za learned that ‘The World is Yours’ is officially one of the top 3 most played and most requested songs on South African radio. Critics have struggled to find fault with either the album or the single due to the authenticity of the music.
Interestingly AKA who never misses a chance to self-promote or build his brand has made no attempt to share the news via any of his social media pages.
Is this the start of a new more subdued and more serious AKA or is the man of the moment, so busy he has no time to toot his own horn?
