DJ Maphorisa condemns Manu WorldStar for trying to start an Amapiano subgenre which he named Afro-Piano.
Taking to social media, the singer teased a song titled Short Story, produced by Gemini Major.
Manu who mind-blown by his song said, “We call it AFRO-PIANO. A Blend Of Amapiano mixed with Afrobeat Technique.”
Maphorisa who is an Amapiano musician slammed Manu for trying to be innovative.
“Manu please dnt dat i beg we also wanna shine give amapiano 10 years to rock,” Phori said.
Though, some Twitter user claimed the Manu song is pleasing to the ears, but Maphorisa doesn’t like how he tried creating another genre from Amapiano.
