AKA Kontrol Music Video Breaks a Record!

Johannesburg - South African Award Winning Hip-Hop Star, AKA, takes control of the market yet again with his latest offering, Kontrol featuring Jozi’s Da L.E.S.

Kontrol’s entry into the market was done in true AKA style, meaning it trended on Twitter in South Africa. This time however, it trended before anyone had even heard the song. Kontrol met the hype making it onto several radio stations’ top charts within its first week of release, and debuted at #4 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Chart.

The Kontrol video made its first public appearance on the afternoon of 4 May on MTVBaseAfrica and later that evening on SABC’s LiveAmp. The video was shot in various locations across Johannesburg and was produced by Young Legends films and directed by Yanga Ntshakaza. The video has been well received by AKA fans across the continent having reached 10 000 YouTube hits in just under 48 hours. A personal YouTube best for AKA, and that number is exponentially increasing.

"The Kontrol video is something I am very proud of. We wanted a video that is authentic in representing what Joburg life is really about. The styling, the locations, we really paid attention to detail. One of my favorite videos from my catalogue" expressed AKA.

The hype of the Kontrol video comes just as the 19th South African Music Awards (SAMAs) are about to take place, in which AKA has been nominated for Best Video of the Year for his track Jealousy. Jealousy was the first single to be released off AKA’s second solo studio album, LeveLs, from which Kontrol followed. LeveLs is due to be released in July 2013.

Kontrol is the perfect intro to the new album. The response has been overwhelming positive from all radio stations and music video channels around Africa. AKA is the voice and inspiration of his generation.... He continues to exceed all expectations” shares Benza, Managing Director at Vth Season Audio & Lifestyle.
