While amapiano is taking over the world, DJ Maphorisa has received a lot of props for introducing international artists to the genre and has become one of the most sought-after producers and amapiano vocalists in Mzansi. DJ Maphorisa real name Themba Sekowe, has a number of accolades under his belt.
DJ Maphorisa is undeniably one of the biggest DJ ‘s to ever come from South Africa. The DJ has gone from featuring on artists like Drake and Major Lazer’s projects. He is now working on new music with Nigerian Afrobeats star Wizkid. See video below:
Maphorisa once revealed his reason for taking the amapiano genre seriously is because of Nigerian singer, WizKid. Taking to Twitter, Maphorisa recalled WizKid saying he had goosebumps when hearing his first amapiano song by Calvin Fallo. “WizKid put me on amapiano. The first amapiano song WizKid heard was by Calvin Fallo, theWololo remix, in Moloko in Pretoria five years ago. That’s when Sponono by Kabza was recorded and I didn’t know Kabza that time. He asked me: ‘What’s this sound? It’s giving me goosebumps’,” he wrote.
The DJ said that moment made him want to pursue the genre.“That’s when I really took amapiano seriously. Listening ke (is a) good skill. Call me Madumane Lawd Ya Di Piano.”
