Amapiano House music is the subgenre from the Southern African hemisphere that is soundtracking raves across the continent these days. Kabza De Small is one of the leading DJs that wields the genre as his beacon of choice to light up the world using the flavored rhythmic sound and this week, he shares the full dose of the shaky percussions and xylophonic led subgenre in the form of his twenty-seven track two-part album, I Am The King Of Amapiano: Sweet And Dust that utilizes the hit-making strengths of Nigeria’s finest, Wizkid and Burna Boy on two standouts off the project.
The first single, Sponono is a heady affair that encapsulates Wizkid, Burna Boy, Cassper Nyovest, and Madumane’s individual capabilities into a potent rave starter brought to life Kabza’s deft handling of all types of synthesized percussions.
He employs Wizkid’s lax but captivating persona on solo track, Need You Tonight, an intoxicating cut rife with sensual lyrics that ricochets off Kabza’s colorful representation of the Amapiano subgenre.
The entire project is an electric affair that relies on the strengths of Africa’s finest to light up the continent currently riddled by a pandemic but in dire need of the vivacity the twenty-seven track album offers.
