Recall that Maphorisa had claimed to have started the Amapiano sound in Nigeria with Wizkid and Burna boy prompting a response from David who had been ascribed the honor.
Now Nigerian singer May D has chimed in, claiming that he pioneered the sound, a claim which he’s made in the past.
Na me bring amapiano come naija , and I have awards to prove that! We started the naija South African collaboration! I don’t like saying shit like this but y’all like putting me under the box
DJ Neptune also waded into the matter as he claimed that he also had a major part to play in the import of the amapiano sound.
And shout out to me too on this Amapiano teeze. How did I forget I made Nobody (Amapiano remix) ft Focalistic, Joeboy & Eazi. In fact the first Naija to feature the kid from SA but I don’t like making noise especially on this 🐦 app, they can change it for anyone
Music producer Kiddominant has this to say:
Me and Cassper “ewallet” started amapiano in west africa. Sponono followed and made it bigger then David & foca really took the genre to another level. Facts
Meanwhile DJ Maphorisa has replied Davido’s comment asking why he hated him by saying he meant no disrespect. He wrote:
I’m not fighting with you at all, my brother. I’m just adding to the amapiano story, because it’s a BIG story with many players. Also this is a historical moment for SA. We’ve never had a genre blow like this. ALL LOVE ONE AFRICA 🙏🏾❤️ Respect u big time u did a lot 4 the Culture
