So we realised that since there are a lot of DJ’s we decided to fuse our sounds and started JazziDisciples,” Josiah said.
Years later, it was announced later announced that Amapiano producers JazziDisciples have decided to split and work on their individual music careers. “I just wanted to solely focus on my music, including the other music production I do. I do not only focus on amapiano, so for me it was to explore more sounds,” he explained.
Although the duo had said they will still release music together at some point, a lot has happened between the two ever since the split. The controversies of who the Beyoncé of the group is started.
Josiah went as further as saying he doesn’t consider himself as only an amapiano producer. “I prefer being referred to as just a producer because I produce different sounds. Hip Hop, Afro-pop, Afro-tech, you name it.
