Multi-award winning hip hop artist AKA is set to host the 10th Annual Channel O Music Video Awards, marking the first time ever that the prestigious awards will have a South African hip hop artist as a host.
He will co-host the highly anticipated event with Nigerian hip hop artist Naeto C on Saturday, 30 November 2013, at Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown, Soweto. “I am very honoured to co-host this celebration of Africa’s finest talent with Naeto C. I won my first Channel O Africa Music Video Award in 2011 and two years later, being in this position is testament to my loyal following.
Thank you to Channel O and the fans. It’s going to be a classic night!” expresses AKA. Africa’s Hip-Hop Prince, AKA, is a multiple nominee for the upcoming award ceremony.
He has received three nominations in the Video of The Year category – for his own song “Jealousy” and two collaborations, Xtatic/AKA & Priddy Ugly’s “Hit ‘Em Up” and Zeus ft AKA & Tumi’s “#DatsWasup”. “Jealousy” is also in the running for the Most Gifted Hip Hop Video – a category AKA won in 2011 for his unforgettable “#1” song, “Victory Lap”.
