South African rapper, AKA, is the cover star for the latest edition of Hype Magazine. This edition aims to reflect on our ‘Bigger Than Hip Hop” spirit and represents how much hip-hop culture has done not only for the artists themselves but those closest to them.
On the cover of the magazine, AKA is photographed with his daughter Kairo Forbes. According to the rapper, he has outgrown his nickname and wants to be known as the father, the businessman and the super mega.
Speaking about his latest venture, “My greatest wish is for Beam Digital to empower talent to grow their brands by knowing their fans. By owning their database, artists can engage more powerfully and directly with their followers and, by leveraging data-driven knowledge ahead of brand endorsements & agreements, they’ll become masters of their own destiny.”
