Vigro Deep On Being Recognised Internationally

Vigro Deep On Being Recognised Internationally. Young amapiano DJ and producer Kamogelo Phetla has conquered Tshwane and is now playing in bigger stages across the world. Vigro Deep has established himself as one of the most prominent musicians in the world of amapiano. His run in the last three years has been unmatched, especially for an artist his age. He released the Baby Boy trilogy and this year, he earned two SAMA nods – one for Best Kwaito/Gqom/Amapiano for, “Baby Boy III” and Best Produced Album for his contribution to DJ Maphorisa’s and Kabza De Small’s, “Scorpion King”.

The teen DJ decided not to sign any record label, but to keep control of his sound and freedom because most of his fans were young people who consumed music through the internet and via his social media accounts. “Another thing that makes me not want to sign to any major record label, even though they knock on my door, is because I’ve seen what other artists have been through from dealing with labels. I don’t want drama and stress; I just want to make music and make people feel good,” Vigro explained.

Being independent has allowed Phetla to spread his wings as he has already performed in countries like Botswana, America, UK, and Mozambique where he stunned crowds with his music. Speaking on being recognised as an artist internationally, Vigro said it came as a surprise to him. “It amazed me because I never thought I could get there. It’s a blessing for me because I started music with no idea that I could go far with it. Doing amapiano is a big deal for me because I love doing it and where it is at the moment,” he said.

Vigro likes working with upcoming artists, as he has done so in his previous offerings. His decision to feature undiscovered talent aligns with his values which are centred on empowering himself and others. “I like to work with a lot of people who are unknown and give them a platform so that they become well-known. I feel like as a producer, I am now focused on collaborating with people who are talented but aren’t really familiar,” said Vigro.
