AKA doesn’t really charge for a verse and will not jump on your song unless he really likes the track or it benefits what he’s doing in some type of way, for example; in the case of Mozambican rapper,  Laylizzy, who did the song “the crew”, has manged to attain AKA for a feature for his song “hello” on the sole basis that AKA is trying to establish presence in a few other countries in Africa, Eg, Tanzania, which is why he featured with Diamond Platnumz, Kenya – which is why he made cameos in Victoria Kimani’s music video, and Nigeria; which is why he continues to collaborate with Burna boy, all for free.

K.O on the other hand does not charge or feature just any rapper, you really have to work and be established for many years to get a feature from K.O, he’s really particular in the way he positions his brand and who he collaborates with.

*please note that these are estimates, figures may have increased/depreciated over time.
