Here’s How Sizwe Alakine Plans To Write Qgom Songs Under His New Amapiano Name
Here’s How Sizwe Alakine Plans To Write Qgom Songs Under His New Amapiano Name. Amapiano has recently become THE genre, with a number of Mzansi’s best rappers jumping on board. Reason, a heavyweight in SA Hip hop, is the latest rapper to jump into Amapiano with a name change of Sizwe Alakine.
In a series of tweets Sizwe shared his song-writing plans for a genre many were not expecting him to jump on. Though he did jump into amapiano with his name change, Sizwe said he will be writing on qgom records. “He writes music for all genres, and he loved helping everyone win. I’m going to Durban in two weeks to song write on gqom records. To help others do what I can do. Ask anybody around. I’m all about sharing ideas for everyone to win. Even the next big hip-hop song was written by me. Cause that’s what I do. I share,” he wrote
Sizwe has been spending quite a lot of time with amapiano heads DJs Kabza de Small and Maphorisa in studio, a relationship that has no doubt influenced his recent decisions and shifts. He has been vocal about his gratitude towards these two and DBN Gogo for showing him the light.
In his tweet he had hoped he would be joined by fellow hip-hop cats on amapiano to grow in their element as creatives by expanding their storytelling to other genres. “I really hope more of my hip hop broers who grew up on Kwaito and house, could see the value in telling South African human truths on a sound that has less creative expectations.Not abandon hip hop, but to expand on their message to others who like raps… but not hip hop,” he wrote.
