Celebrity feuds and beefs are nothing new in the music scene and Maphorisa is not new to making rivals. Just recently, the Amapiano DJ was accused being arrogant because of his success with the Amapiano genre. He is one of the people who jumped ship and helped the genre grow to the massive heights it has currently reached, but he is calling on others to do the same.
The Scorpion King kindly asked the popular DJs Shimza, Heavy K and DJ Black Coffee to play Amapiano music in their sets. Even though they are not Amapiano DJs, their impact in the industry is so massive that them playing the songs will elevate the genre.
“I wish Shimza, Heavy K le Bo Black Coffee badlale amapiano (could play Amapiano). It will mean a lot for the movement ya amapiano,” he wrote on Facebook.
Sounds like a good idea right? Well, Shimza and Heavy K are against it. In fact they teamed up against Maphorisa and called him to order. They told the DJ they will not be told by him what to do.
Heavy K first responded by saying his 10 years in the industry allows him to be flexible and experiment with other sounds. Even though he can handle Amapiano and House music, he wants to try out other things.
“Me I can handle both House and Amapiano, Porry. It marks 10 years of Heavy K this year and I’ll be introducing my other production strong points. It’s necessary for me. To my day-one fans, I’ll never leave you behind but allow me to experiment,” he replied.
DJ Shimza on the other hand said it does not seem right for all of them to be doing the same thing because their goals are not set out the same. “We can’t all do the same thing because we all have different goals and paths in our careers, ma brother. You guys are doing perfectly fine without us and it’s amazing to watch from the outside! Keep going! We here to support.”
To clarify that he is not a hater, Heavy K shared a video of him playing at one of his gigs, where he switched from House music to Amapiano.
Others also applauded their decision to stay on their lanes and do what they know best.
Just recently, Maphorisa got slammed for not showing some humility when he said other artists are just not hitting the right spot. “I think some artists must come consult with me before they release songs cause, ja no, it’s not happening shame.”
He was called to order and reminded what would happen should he continue having such a huge ego. He continued being smug and told people to not compare him to anyone.
“Nyenyenye continue what? Don’t compare me. I’m my own version. I’m different, just watch my moves. Don’t wish me bad,” Maphorisa replied.
