Over the past two years, more South African artists have gone on to venture into other parts of Africa as their music has evolved and been received by wider audiences. Yesterday our cover boy K.O announced he is off to tour East Africa.
The Skhanda Republic king is set to showcase at Nairobi’s top hip hop event Nairobi Rapsody (17th Sept 2015) at Ebony Lounge, Westlands, with Kenyan rapper King Kaka (Rabbit) slated as K.O’s main supporting act. He will be also be guest at Kenya’s Storymoja Festival (18th Sept 2015) at Nairobi Arboretum at an Artist Talk Back event on the discussion: to what extent does music (hip hop) define the African narrative.
“I’m excited to be traveling to East Africa for the very first time as a solo artist and representing SA Hip Hop” K.O said ahead of his tour. “Definitely planning to release some of my futures projects there soon and looking forward to working with the much talented acts from this region,” he goes onto say.
What do you think East Africa should expect from one of SA’s biggest hustlers?
