Junior Taurus Releases His Last Amapiano EP
One of the pioneers in the music industry, Tshepo “Junior Taurus” Mosidi is a name that comes to mind as he’s contributed to some of Mzansi’s most loved songs. His influence in the industry is documented by the artists he’s worked with. He’s done engineering work for a number of local and international artists. including Lamiez, Lady Zamar, Venom X Shishileza, Cassper, Kid Dominant, Focalistic and Major League, among others.
Junior Taurus has finally dropped his last amapiano EP. The star released a 4-track EP titled “Until September” and shared that it marks as his last contribution to the amapiano genre. Junior made it known that he has been in the music industry for more than 10 years, and that while amapiano was getting more attention, he was looking to go back to his roots. “These are the last sort of tracks in this style that I’m chasing. As a producer it’s easy to follow trends, especially now with amapiano. Tomorrow there will be something new. amapiano is not going to last forever. What is the next thing? I am creating the next thing,” he said.
Though he did not deny the great impact amapiano has had globally, he felt it is better for artists to succeed making music that makes them happy. “Sometimes, because of amapiano, you feel like if you don’t do whatever it is that’s happening at the moment you won’t get booked. I’ve seen a lot of change in people’s lives. Artists are creating generational wealth because of amapiano and we all aspire to be at that level,” he added.
Junior Taurus discovered and worked closely with, a number of talented stars. He’s known mostly for the projects with Lamiez and the joint projects with Lady Zamar, working with her as a duo. “I’m always in a position that I find vocalists and I believe in helping somebody to a point where they can make their own decision in which way to go in their career instead of tying them down with a contract, instead of being bound by something that should put you on. She is a talented writer and musician. I knew back then that the Lady would be amazing in the industry. It’s unfortunate that there are songs we haven’t released that were next level. I doubt there will be any songs in the future, because things were not ended off properly.”
