Watch! Kabza Shares What He Hopes To Teach His Fans With His ‘KOA’ Album. Known as a key innovator of amapiano, Kabza De Small is also one of the faces of South Africa’s youth culture right now, having contributed bodies of work like his 2020 album I Am the King of Amapiano: Sweet & Dust as well as the definitive Scorpion Kings album with long-time collaborator DJ Maphorisa.

The feature coincides with the release of the producer’s 18-track album KOA II featuring such artists as DJ Maphorisa, Ami Faku, Lady Du, Yung Stunna and Nobuhle, among others.“Amapiano is for the youth,” Kabza De Small told Spotify. “Amapiano is not something that was involved with a lot of things. Like now, this is when they are starting to brand amapiano. Amapiano developed on its own, do you understand? You must know, like labels and stuff, we started this thing from scratch. There wasn’t too much sampling and stuff, those things are only starting now. It’s something that was innovated.”

Together with the inclusion of Kabza De Small on the Times Square billboard, Spotify is promoting the AmaPiano Grooves playlist to celebrate the genre alongside other African cultural movements making a mark internationally, in an effort to ensure that international listeners are informed about culturally significant music.

Kabza De Small said with his latest offering ‘KOA’ he hopes to teach his fans more about Amapiano, and his new experiments on the sound. Watch the video on the link:
