Hip-hop artist AKA shot up the iTunes charts from the minute his latest single ‘Congratulate’ hit the digital waves last week.
It reached the no.1 spot on iTunes SA’s Hip-Hop chart, effectively kicking Eminem off the no.1 spot in the genre. A few hours later, the song dethroned Cold Play on iTunes SA’s overall chart.
‘Congratulate’ created a social media frenzy since its release with fans showing the artist support by purchasing the track off iTunes, posting the artwork on social media and using the hashtag #AKACongratulate to spread the love.
The country’s top radio stations got their hands on it in no time and saw it debut on Metro FM, Dj Fresh’s Drive Time Show on 5FM and during Warras’s slot on YFM.
AKA expressed his appreciation for all the love he’s received so far.
"I would like to thank all the fans and media platforms that contributed to #Congratulate going to #1 on iTUNES SA! This is not just a big achievement for myself but for SA Hip Hop in general. I appreciate the overwhelming response and eagerly anticipate the release of my sophomore album," he said.
