AKoVA reminds us of something we were told during childhood but have forgotten; the best thing you can ever be is yourself. He believes music has the ability to do much more than entertain. Dubbed the "Rhythm King" by music media. His lyrically outstanding Alternate folk melodies are driven with high energy beats. Seducing us into listening to the deeper meanings of our life. Inspiring encouraging uplifting. We believe AKoVA's a gift of the times.
