AKA West African Tour – – A first for the SA rapper
The AKA West African tour, starting today, will have two stops Lagos on the 28th of January and Accra on the 31st of January 2015.
This AKA West African tour will also be his debut tour to this part of the world. He’s already made a passionate statement about these two gigs and how original he believes his own act as an African artist is.
“It’s time that we as Africans connect and tell our own story. This West African tour is the beginning of a long awaited story; I believe that the rest of the world is ready to hear.” says AKA
The tour kicks off at Industry Nites in Lagos on Wednesday the 28th of January, after that he heads to Accra’s Rockstone’s Django on the 31st of January.
He plans on spending four nights in Lagos and three in Accra so that he may have an opportunity to connect with local fans. He also plans on spending time in studio with some of Nigeria’s well known artists. It’s always a good idea to take full advantage of that air fare so this is a clever move.
“We are very excited to host AKA for the first time in Lagos, Nigeria. Industry Nite is all about cultural exchanges within Africa, from our national and international tours to our African All Star series. Looking forward to a wonderful show.” Mathew Ohio, head of Industry Nite Lagos
AKA will be participating in a radio and promo tour in Nigeria and Ghana. The promo tour is aimed at connecting him with his followers and the music scene in Accra and Lagos where his track ‘All Eyes On Me’ featuring Nigeria’s Burna Boy has been well received.
