Amapiano is obviously the biggest sound in South Africa as it’s garnered the attention of various international artists, and it’s assumed that the emergence of the genre dethroned hip hop in South Africa.

Let’s get busy!!! I’m inspired!!!”
Meanwhile, Mr JazziQ revealed in the first episode of his podcast that hip-hop isn’t dead but the artists are at fault. Stilo Magolide on the other hand explained that with the rise of the amapiano movement, 2019 has been an extremely tough year for hip-hop. He says the problem is a lack of unity in the game. “It’s been a tough year for hip-hop but one thing is that a lot of artists are not putting out a lot of music and if they are putting out music, they are not putting out music together. The difference between hip-hop and people from other genres is that they always mix and feature each other on songs. Whereas, in hip-hop, rappers feature their friends. That’s why amapiano is killing the game. In hip-hop there is no unity.”
