Is there a negative side to Amapiano?
Amapiano has been spreading her wings all over South Africa and has been extending its domain to other countries. Amapiano has proved itself to be more than fast-rising but more of an influence.
The genre of music has caught the attention of big artists in the industry like Usher, Wizkid, Burna Boy, Drake, and a few more by extensions of South African Amapiano holders like Kabza De Small, DJ Maphorisa, De Mthuda, DJ Stokie, JazziDisciples, MFR Souls and a few more with their tracks and mixes.
Some of the tracks and mixes that have taken Amapiano globally are Sponono by Kabza De Small featuring Wizkid, Burna Boy, Cassper Nyovest, and Madumane. Amapiano Balcony Mixes by Major League DJz and various artists,
Amapiano has really taken her name globally as a new genre over the years but complaints rose against it as also having a bad influence in the Industry.
Artists and fans have complained major about the toxicity and the addiction of the genre as they believe it would wipe out other genres in South Africa.
Other genre artists have been taking a shift and trying the new genre and seem to gain interest in it. Fans also took an advantage point on that to say it’s better to try Amapiano than forcing themselves to sound like the European artists.
On the other hand, Amapiano has been said to bring unnecessary celebrities to the genre. Amapiano’s speed has attached a lot of upcoming artists who want to gain fame with the new age genre and now said to be “crowded”.
