DJ Maphorisa Insists Wizkid Tried Amapiano Before Davido
DJ Maphorisa Insists Wizkid Tried Amapiano Before Davido: There has been a ruckus on social media with a lot of people arguing about who imported Amapiano to West Africa.
This didn’t go down well with Davido’s fan base but he said what he said. Amapiano is unarguably created in South Africa with her artists consistently pushing the genre which has now penetrated other African countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, and other nations.
A Twitter user started it by saying the Nigerian singer, Davido was the first to take the genre to Nigeria and make it successful.
“Davido brought Amapiano from South Africa two years ago and made it a successful genre in Africa and Beyond, Wizkid is now hopping on the same genre after davido made it a successful genre. This is how many African artists have been benefiting from Davido’s success for over 12yrs,” he wrote.
DJ Maphorisa slammed the claim, saying Wizkid and Burna Boy were the first Nigerian artists to be on piano beat.
“Kabza & Maphorisa was the first to put Wizkid n Burnaboy on a amapiano song Sponono dat was a historical moment 3 years ago, research before tweet also it was the first time Wiz n Burna jumped on a same song together let it sink in,” he tweeted.
