About the AKA Scholarship

AKA has established himself as one of South Africa’s top talents as a multi-award winning musician and producer who understands the importance of creating opportunities such as this scholarship. As he explains further, “It’s a great honour for me to be able to offer a young aspiring musician/producer/engineer an opportunity to equip themselves with the skills needed to begin a career in the industry. I myself studied to be a sound engineer and I still use the same skills I acquired all those years back, in the day to day happenings of my own career. Thank you SAE and Bridges for Music for partnering with me on this awesome initiative. Good luck to the recipient of this scholarship, and see you at the top.”
