Bio

KVKA is often profiled as a “hip-hop artist” but really his music ranges from neo-soul R&B to hard hitting rock/rap. Born in Africa, raised in the U.K and finally setting in New Zealand his broad scope stems from an multicultural background.

Turning heads with over a million YouTube views on his debut track ‘WHO YOU’ (2014), KVKA has been a name on the New Zealand and International Hip-Hop scene for over 4 years now and has developed a somewhat cult following with a steady stream of releases since.

KV is particularly known for his distinctive aesthetic and brand. Working with his own team of producers, designers and photographers at Stay Savage Ltd KV is able to maintain a strong and consistent artist brand which is immediately recognisable and is almost just as valuable as the music in the hip-hop and pop world.

People often say you can’t fully appreciate an artist until you see them perform live and this is most definitely the case with KVKA. KV’s stage presence and voice captivates his audience as soon as he graces the stage. He holds an amazing grasp on his audience and is hyper aware of the mood, whether that be getting everyone jumping or listening intently to a lyrical delivery, he always knows just how to conduct his fans in a live situation.

This track's HARD! Really strong one KVKA, it bangs. Pretty stoked this guy's in Melbourne now and we can claim him.
