Known for making as many hits as he does headlines, AKA is set to take the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts stage on Sunday, 9 February 2020.

Held in association with Old Mutual, Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts have become a Cape Town staple and is excited to welcome one of the city’s very own home this weekend.

“Playing at Kirstenbosch has always been a goal of mine. It's an environment where people come together to enjoy music and see a show - a family environment, which is what I like. I've always had that love for family in my music and for me to be able to perform at Kirstenbosch Garden really highlights the fact that I'm a dad and performer that the whole family can enjoy, so I'm looking forward to the show.” AKA

AKA’s last album, Touch My Blood went gold in a matter of days and is considered one of the fastest-selling albums in South African hip-hop history. This was topped by the release of Reebok’s first collaboration with a South African artist, the SneAKA, last year which sold out in minutes - So you can expect a performance that looks as good as it sounds from Supa Mega.

“You can expect a high-energy journey of all my music throughout the years. My first song came out around ten years ago so my performance will be a reflection of my time in the music industry. Concert-goers can expect some surprises as well as a setlist featuring classics such as ‘Jealousy’ and newer hits such as ‘Fela in Versace’, ‘Free’ and ‘Main Ou’s’." AKA
