K.O: Less talk, more action

Apr 04, 2016, 12:27 AM

K.O is all about making his music do the talking for him.

The respected rapper, who's having a successful career, got fans excited when he dropped his latest single Papa Action on Friday. The award-winning musician last released new music in 2014 - songs that we're still jamming to today. 

Speaking about his latest song, which he started working on in March, he told ZAlebs: "It's derived from the popular character from the popular series Yizo Yizo from back in the day. Just in terms of his attitude... and how he presented himself out there. He was not a walk over, he's a guy who stood his ground..."

He explained that he aligns himself with his personality but in a different way in 2016 - through music. "Where I actually just focus mainly on the action that's in the title 'Papa Action', where if you listen to the song, there's things like "put your money where your mouth is, more action, less talk'.

"You have a lot of guys who are really not about the stuff that they talk about, I believe in just showing and proving, in terms of where hip hop is concerned. I let the music do the talking for me..."  

K.O's music has definitely put him on the map and he continues to show us that he's one of Mzansi's best musicians.  

He said that this year the main target is to continue cultivating the market outside of SA.

"I think we've done so much locally, and there's still a lot to be done in Africa, Europe, Asia and America. I'm happy that I had the chance to go and showcase in all these different territories. Now we need to make my brand, basically South African music, a household brand that side."
