There’s no formula to make a great chart-topper according to K.O, the South African hip hop artist, rapper and songwriter was speaking to The Ultimate Kaya 959 Top 30 host DJ Keyez.
“To be basic you need a great track, good hook and make sure that the lyrics are relatable.”
The artist was recently on Elite Nites with Kgomotso Meso where he spoke about his latest track K: HOVA which was influenced by Jay Z.
When asked how far away he is from making his first billion, the rapper explained his billion has nothing to do with the numbers, although that may be the focus to most. For him, it’s more about what he’s leaving behind as a legacy, what’s the message people receive that’s more important.
K.O’s track is hidden somewhere on DJ Keyez’s chart and when quizzed as to what number K:HOVA is sitting at, the answer was a pretty confident 5 or 6.
His guesses for the Top 3 songs on the debut show for The Ultimate Kaya 959 Top 30 was as follows, in no particular order:
Cassper with Asambe
Bruno Mars, Anderson Paak and Silk Sonic with Leave the Door Open
Ciza and DJ Maphorisa with Bank Notification
