South Africa's AKA Earns BET Awards "Best International Act" Nomination

South African hip hop artist AKA is continuing to push musical boundaries and today was announced by BET as this years’ nominee for “Best International Act” for the BET Awards.

AKA is the only South African nominee representing the category of hip hop/rap alongside Burna Boy and Mr Eazi.

He’s been focused on becoming an internationally known artist, working with producers and talent all over the world - and it’s apparent with his BET Awards nomination that people are paying attention.

Watch "Fela in Versace" Now.

“It’s an honor to rep my country at this year’s BET Awards. Afrobeatz is dominating the continent and I’m glad to be paving the way for hip hop. This one is for the culture.” - AKA

AKA’s widely known hit single “Fela In Versace” featuring Kiddominant has gone 4x platinum; landing this hip hop artist US notoriety and worldwide recognition.

Catch AKA on the red carpet at this year's BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 23rd.
