Headlines Urban Hype to perform alongside South African Rapper AKA

hip hop group Urban Hype are set to play alongside South African rappers Da L.E.S and AKA at an exclusive all white party to be held at Radisson Blu in Lusaka on Saturday.
The only unfortunate thing about the show, at least for the fans, is that it is strictly by invitation.
When Urban Hype, which is made-up of AJ, Kapoojay and Sanjay, confirmed that they will be performing alongside Da L.E.S and AKA, they were daunted by fans wanting to attend and asking about tickets.
But for others, they thought the bill fitted Urban Hype as they are generally regarded as an international act.
“It suits you, maybe AKA may want to work with you,” one fan wrote on their Facebook page.

AKA (Kiernan Jordan Forbes) is a multiple award-winning rapper. Some of the awards he has won include the South African Music Awards (SAMA) for Best Street Urban Music Album and Male Artist of the Year and the Channel O Most Gifted Hip-Hop Video for one of his hit songs Victory Lap.
His debut album Alter Ego earned him the Metro FM Music Awards for Best Newcomer, Best Hip Hop and Best Produced Album in his home country. He has also opened for the likes of Kanye West,  Snoop Dog, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar on their South African tours.

On the other hand, Da L.E.S, who was born Leslie Mampein in Washington DC, USA before returning to South Africa with his parents at the end of apartheid, has also been nominated for a SAMA, Metro FM Award and Channel O.
He is said to have started as part of hip hop trio called Jozi which had Ishmael ‘Ish’ Morabe and Bongani ‘Bongz’ Fassie in it. Together, they won a MTV African Music Award.
His solo debuted album Fresh to Def also received some nominations. His other album titled Mandela Money has featured AKA. So, perhaps, they are likely to perform together at Radisson Blu.
