Currently in the Afrobeat eco-system, Amapiano is at the highest point of popularity, taking all the shine from the other sub-genres.
Amapiano is undoubtedly the one of the biggest music genres in Africa now. Orginating from South Africa, the drum heavy sound which has shifted Gqom to the side has since become a mayhem across Africa.
Currently in Nigeria, Afrobeats artistes like Rexxie, Mayorkun, Dremo, Tekno, DJ Spinall, WurlD, Timaya, DJ Tunez, Alpha P, Skales, DJ Xclusive, Bella Shmurda, Zlatan, Ckay, Tunde Ednut, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Wizkid, Flavour, Seun Kuti and many others, have performed Amapiano in recent months.
It is fascinating to see the Nigerian music industry and it’s producers are owning the sound which originated from South Africa, and if things are not explicitly done, Nigerians might be responsible for making Amapiano break into the international music market.
Gradually making it’s way to the shores of Ghana, musicians like D-Black, Smallgod, Sefa and a few others have leveraged on the frenzy to make club hits. Kelvynboy is the latest Ghanaian act to branch out with the Amapiano genre, teaming up with Afrobeat hitmaker, Quamina Mp. He titles this potential party rocker ‘Choco’, produced by Anelworldiwde.
