AKA Shares Fitting Visuals for ‘Energy’ Featuring Gemini Major

Watch AKA and Gemini Major's music video for 'Energy.'

AKA's recently released single "Energy" is about unplugging from the hustle and bustle of the city and taking some time out to recharge ("I gotta go, I'll be back in a minute").

In the song's music video, which premiered on YouTube yesterday, Supa Mega and his collaborator Gemini Major take a road trip in a five-vehicle road trip.


The video consists of performance scenes by the two artists to a backdrop of South Africa's adorable mountain ranges. Given the current state of affairs with the lockdown prohibiting a lot of activities, the video is somewhat of a flex.

"Energy" is one of three singles released by AKA in May. The rapper is currently in a marathon of music videos—all three songs are getting treated to visuals every week. "Energy" follows the video for "Cross My Heart," which was released last week. "Monuments," which features AKA's frequent collaborator Yanga Chief and Grandmaster Ready D, will follow next week.

Just like most artists, AKA is adapting to the lockdown and restrictions enforced by governments across the world to combat the Covid-19 pandemic—releasing content consistently. Apart from music, Supa Mega has been creating content for his personal app which consists of interviews and live performances.

Watch the music video for "Energy" below and revisit the video for "Cross My Heart" here.

The 10 Best HHP Songs Ranked

On the second anniversary of HHP's passing, we rank 10 of the South African hip-hop legend's best songs.

During his active years, which span two decades (from 1997 to 2018), he was instrumental in breaking barriers and bridging the gap between kwaito and hip-hop in SA, from the late 90s to early 2000s.

He became a household name in the 2000s as he spearheaded the motswako movement, propelling it to the mainstream and solidifying his legendary status in the process.
