On 30 November, the 10th annual Channel O Africa Music Video Awards take place at Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown, Soweto. Alongside Naeto C, AKA is set to host one of the biggest awards ceremonies in Africa, which will be broadcast live on Channel O.
“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.
A multiple nominee for the upcoming award ceremony, he’s 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”.
