Youth day with SA Hip Hop

By Drum Digital
17 June 2015

As South Africa commemorated June 16 as Youth Day, Mzansi's hip hop cats were celebrating for different reasons.

Still in Europe and trying to get his name internationally recognised, AKA hit the gold here at home.

His album, Levels, sold enough copies to get him a gold plaque. Does that mean he will lay off iFani now? We'll just have to wait and see...


Tumi Molekane, on the other hand, released a brand new album which seems to be doing well already. The album, Return of the King, was released Bey style as it came as a total surprise - no dates were ever surprised until the day of the release.  

And although this wasn't announced on Youth Day, Cassper Nyovest's nomination in a new BET award category also got his fans excited.  

This nomination takes up Mzansi's nomination tally to three.

All in all, not a bad way of celebrating Youth Day right?

Congrats to all the m'rappers!
