2014 was a special year for K.O and the entire Cashtime Life. The year saw them release Caracara which was one of the biggest Hip Hop songs in the history of South African Hip Hop and the song’s video was the first SA Hip Hop song to ever reach a million views on YouTube.
Now K.O has been selected as one of the five African artists to watch in 2015 by BBC Radio 1Xtra.
This is a digital radio station in the United Kingdom which specialises in urban music.
The other four African artists selected are Silvastone from Ghana, Nigerian stars Seyi Shay, Patoranking and Sauti Sol, a band from Kenya.
The African artists list is compiled by DJ Edu, the BBC 1Xtra’s first and only anchor for the African mix show Destination Africa.
Some of the big African names that DJ Edu has managed to unearth include K’naan and Nneka, who also won the Music of Black Origin awards.
All the best K.O!!!
