Blaq Diamond relocated to Johannesburg to further pursue their dream.

Their music has always promoted love, respect, integrity, honesty, peace as well as soulful joy. This young duo has a rare, authentic sound that has always been epitomized with a Black Diamond as it is a precious stone from the mud and rare to find, this led to their stage name “Blaq Diamond”.

AKA

AKA ‘Supa Mega’

Kiernan Jarryd Forbes (born 28 January 1988), better known by his stage name AKA, is a South African hip hop recording artist originally from Cape Town.

In 2002, he was part of the rap group Entity that had a hit with “Touch N Go”. Entity were nominated in 2005 for “Best African Hip Hop” in the KORA Awards[1]and performed during the event. He went on to study sound engineering before choosing to perform. “I decided that’s what I needed to do,” says the man dubbed the Prince of South African Rap.

As Entity disbanded in 2006, AKA went on to study sound engineering and later joined Buks and Kamza to form the production collective known as The I.V. League in 2007. His production credits include tracks by PRO, Tuks Senganga, Andile, Shugasmakx, Khuli Chana, Teargas, Psyfo, Jub Jub, Loyiso Bala, Bala Brothers, Jae, JR and Proverb.

In 2009 AKA ventured for a solo career with hits like “Mistakes”, “In My Walk” and “Do It” with the latter making it to number 1 on the South African 5FM Top 40. He won Metro FM Music Awards for “Best Newcomer”, “Best Hip Hop” as a solo act and “Best Produced Album” for his debut Altar Ego. It is then that he was dubbed “Prince of South African Rap” by one of the national newspapers. He also won “Best Dressed man” during the GQ Awards in South Africa alongside Oscar Pistorius.

In 2011 AKA’s song “Victory Lap” won Channel O’s Most Gifted Hip-Hop Video at the 7th annual Channel O Music Video Awards and at the 18th South African Music Awards AKA was awarded Male Artist of the Year and Best Street Urban Music Album. The rapper went on to say “Winning the awards has been a big honour and it is very humbling. The Male Artist of the Year award has made me see myself as a musician across all genres and not just a hip-hop artist,”.

AKA has opened for Kanye West, Snoop dogg, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar in their South African tours. He has won many awards including “Best Street Urban Music Album” and “Male Artist of the Year” at the 18th South African Music Awards (SAMA) South African equivalent to the Grammys.

In late 2014 rapper AKA signed a multi-album deal with Sony Music through its new local urban label Sound African recordings. Executive head of A&R for Sony, Zakes Bantwini made the announcement through their platform. ‘We’re excited to add AKA’s illustrious career to our stable. We are excited about AKA’s growth prospects in Africa and beyond.’ The Sony Music/AKA partnership is the key catalyst to change the business and face of Music across Africa, especially in the key areas of quality, distribution and content management’. In June 2015, AKA’s sophomore album Levels was certified Gold, by theRecording Industry of South Africa, for shipments of over 20,000 copies domestically.

The rapper AKA is generally considered as one of the most talented and influential rappers in South Africa and the African continent, praised by fans for evolving Hip-Hop in Africa.

In 2015, aka’s sophomore album Levels is available on a vinyl known as a gramophone record.

Yanga Ntshakaza was born in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape in October 1987 and grew up in Queenstown.

Ntshakaza first rose to stardom in 2014 when he was featured in AKA’s hit single, Run Jozi, and ever since then he has never looked back. He is popularly known for his hit single, Mantshingilane which has been making waves on the music scene.

Born and bred in Queenstown in the Eastern Cape, growing up was a bit of a roller coaster for the rising star. “I grew up in a double-storey house and my father had a Honda. But by Grade 4 my dad lost his job and we were staying together in a one-bedroom flat with my mother and my three siblings.”

Although his father later started a new business and bought a new house, he passed on before they could move in. “I went through high school with a single mom struggling to pay for a house she couldn’t afford to buy to begin with.

After finishing his matric, Ntshakaza moved to the City of Gold and studied film at the University of Johannesburg before he left after two years to pursue his career in music. “I came to Joburg because of school to study film, but then I dropped out to do music. I lost all the support I had back home. When I started working in music it helped me to pay bills here and there,” he said.
