#PhotographingRap | AKA

On  this second installment of #PhotographingRap, I’d like to share a few of the images of the South African rapper AKA, who was recently announced by BBC’s Radio 1 and 1Xtra as “One To Watch” for 2016. I think the ‘only African artist on that list’ positioning his PR people are pursuing further entrenches our continent as a special case, never deserving to be on par with what’s happening elsewhere. But that’s another debate altogether. These images were captured over the last 3 years. [Opening image: Griffin Sessions, 2013]
