DJ Maphorisa Updates How The ‘Jorja Amapiano Saga’ Is Being Resolved. English musician Jorja Smith has recently become one the first global stars to jump on that amapiano boat. Alongside Ghanaian music producer GuiltyBeatz, Jorja released a single that can be heard on a beat which they describe as amapiano.
Following Jorja Smith releasing an amapiano single which sparked outrage on social media, Maphorisa has updated the fans and amapiano artists on the outcome of the saga. The star said he received the files to do the remix on the track and stated that he will be calling De Mthuda to work on it with him. “We fixing it just got the files to do a remix I think this one needs De Mthuda his on his way just called him. Amapiano to the world,” she wrote.
South Africans know that amapiano is one of the most innovative home-grown genres since the nation was blessed with Gqom. However, it seems like the international scene has picked up that artists have been killing it with the ingenious evolution of SA afro-house. After the song hit streaming platforms, SA caught wind of the single and had their own comments on the song. Taking to Twitter, many of the biggest names in entertainment felt the musicians who created the track couldn’t claim that it was an “amapiano” track, with many saying that it strays too far from the roots of the genre
