PREVIEW: Akala @ the Haunt, 07/05/15

Presented by One Inch Badge, rapper Akala will be performing on May 7th at The Haunt, Brighton as part of his UK Tour from his newly released album ‘Knowledge Is Power, Volume 2’.

Born and raised in London’s Kentish Town, Kingslee Daley, better known by his stage name Akala (a Buddhist term meaning ‘Immoveable’), is an influential Hip-hop artist known for his educating lyrics, touching on topics rarely spoken about in mainstream society, such as African History. His first album ‘Its Not A Rumour’ won the 2006 MOBO Award for Best Hip-Hop Artist, leading him to perform at an opening slot on Christina Aguilera’s 2006 UK Tour. Heavily influenced by genre defining artists in Hip-Hop, such as Wu Tang Klan and Public Enemy, Akala reflects on the roots of Hip-Hop and shares knowledge through his music.

Now following the recent release of his latest project ‘Knowledge Is Power, Volume 2’, Akala will be performing on Thursday 7th May at The Haunt, 7pm. Visit this link to get your ticket!
