Kiernan is one artist who takes his craft very seriously and the way the masses respond to his tracks backs our statement. Even at 31-years-old, he’s arguably the biggest rapper in SA.

On March 17, 2019, he’ll be making history at the Sun Area, Times Square in Pretoria. Created, developed and produced in partnership with Mahogany and Vertex Events, his AKA Orchestra On The Square will see the gifted performer take stage with a 30 piece orchestra. The event is set to be the first ever in the history of SA Hip Hop.

Today he released the music video for Jika, his latest single featuring Yanga following the success of Fela In Versace.
