South African hip hop recording artist and record producer, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes known by his stage name AKA, has announced the title of his next album. He has been working on his third solo studio album for a while and it’s clear that the album is close to finish.
This happened to be his latest album since he dropped his sophomore album three years ago. The album will be titled ‘Feel My Blood!’ AKA has not announced when he plans to drop the album.
In 2009, AKA ventured for a solo career with hits like “Mistakes”, won several awards in South Africa and beyond and that has got him the name which was dubbed “Prince of South African Rap” by one of the national newspapers.
AKA has opened for Kanye West, Snoop dogg, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar in their South African tours. In late 2014 rapper AKA signed a multi-album deal with Sony Music through its new local urban label Sound African recordings.
In June 2015, AKA’s sophomore album Levels was certified Gold, by the Recording Industry of South Africa, for shipments of over 20,000 copies domestically, as of May 2016 the album was certified platinum by RiSA.
