AKA - real name Kiernan Forbes - is one of the most in-demand rappers in South Africa in recent years. Born in Cape Town in 1988, he started out in 2002 in a group of schoolmates called Entity. Since then, AKA’s stock has been increasingly on the rise. Entity were forced apart by the various new roads each member wanted to venture alone.
