Akala has continued to emerge from London’s Hip Hop underground and into the mainstream as one of the leaders of a new British artistic renaissance. With his unsigned video appearing on MTV’s TRL in 2004, heavy BBC Radio 1 airplay following the release of his smash single ‘Shakespeare’ and earning ‘Best Hip Hop Artist’ at the 2006 MOBO Awards (beating Kanye West), Akala’s Hip Hop career has continued to soar. His latest Album ‘The Thieves Banquet’ was released in May.
