DJ Maphorisa gave fans the full gist about the hit song, eMcimbini and it got jaws drop.
During a live chat on Instagram, the music producer said the song was withdrawn from Mas Musiq by himself, and Kabza De Small and Samthing Soweto were asked to drop a verse on it.
“Mas used to be selfish, and unfortunately eMcimbini, why we took it. Why Kabza and I took eMcimbini was because it had a saga. It had saga why? Mas Musiq sampled Samthing Soweto’s afro beat song. We played that song at Live [Amp]”
“Then when we played it at Live [Amp], Samthing Soweto freaked asking why are the boys sampling me … I begged Samthing Soweto telling him that the song is big. I then thought Kabza and I should take it and he should add a verse,” he said.
