“If you’re reading this then congratulations because you’ve just discovered HYPE Magazine’s new Collectors Five edition that finds arguably the biggest SA hip hop artist, Kiernan Forbes (otherwise known to you as AKA), gracing his sixth HYPE cover alongside his beautiful daughter Kairo. You probably can already tell that this edition isn’t basic. We dropped the name AKA on the cover to symbolise that Kiernan Forbes is the man behind The SupaMega and that Kiernan Forbes is bigger than what you perceive him as. Kiernan Forbes is a father, a son, a brother, a partner, a businessman and a crucial key in unlocking the forthcoming of SA hip hop. Collectors Five stands to honour an icon that continues to stand against the test of time. In this edition we talk about everything: the music, the new album, family, friends, BEAM Group, the new BEAM Digital establishment and the future. We’re also grateful to have interviews with the likes of Zingah, Emtee, Sjava, Tshego, AB Crazy, Priddy Ugly, DJ Supernova, Bianca Koyabe and a whole lot more, making this one edition not to miss. With all of that said, if you don’t know it already I go by the name of Roo and GOD is love” – Roo, HYPE Magazine Editor
