Nigerian singer, Davido has carpeted DJ Maphorisa for giving credits to Wizkid and Burna Boy over Amapiano’s success in Africa.
This is coming after a Twitter user identified as
suggested that Davido brought Amapianon from South Africa and made it a successful genre.
The tweep wrote, “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.”
Reacting to the claim, DJ Maphorisa stated that Kabza & Maphorisa was the first to put Wizkid n Burnaboy on a amapiano song Sponono.
He tweeted, “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.”
However, it seems Davido did not agree with this claim as he carpeted DJ Maphorisa for linking Amapiano’s success in Africa to Wizkid and Burna Boy.
Davido responded, saying, “You’ve never liked me y ? I’ve always been good to you …. Anyways ! AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY NOW!!!!!! Chu chu chu chu chu.”
