No doubt that AKA is always a talking point, but during the lockdown he has been all the talk - both personally and professionally.

The Hip-Hop superstar dropped 3 singles and he chatted to Zweli on the #947Top40 to cover his music, his creative process, life in lockdown, and whether we have an album coming up.

On his family life...

Everyone is doing as best they can; I would like to see my daughter more but we have to keep our distance and keep safe.


He's been making the social media trends of late, so Zweli also chatted to him about his personal journey...

Personally, I think as an artist this has been the best period for me because it gave me the ability to just slow down and work on my music. I have so much music to share with the world. It's also given me time to work on myself as a person and as a man.


You don't want to come out of this lockdown as the same person you were before the lockdown.


AKA also does a weekly online television show called AKA TV, which features every week and is a 45-minute live set.
