Kwesta Celebrates 5 Years of ‘DaKAR II’

Tomorrow will mark 5 years since the release of Kwesta’s critically acclaimed album, DaKAR II and that day will be celebrated with an exclusive airing of the ‘5 Years of Kwesta’s DaKAR II’ special on Channel O tomorrow at 4 pm. The special will also capture rare moments with Kwesta talking about legacy, life and love while breaking down the music that has shaped the culture and is currently still the best-selling hip-hop album in South Africa. This will include a first in SA music, when DaKAR II becomes the first album to feature on Apple Music’s new Classic Album of the Week, on Friday, March 5th, 2021.

“I want to leave a balanced legacy – professional and personal. Personally, my legacy is whatever my daughter interprets my music to be. That is the legacy that interests me the most and the one I want to keep positive.” – Kwesta

When asked about how he feels about DaKAR II, Urbantainment head, Nota Baloyi, said: “Urbantainment started working on the DaKAR plan in 2011, and here we are 10-years later celebrating the 5th anniversary of the crown jewel of SA Hip hop releases”.
