Davido and DJ Maphorisa clash over Amapiano

Internationally acclaimed musicians Davido and DJ Maphorisa‘s twar has left tongues wagging on Twitter. This follows after a Twitter user credited Amapiano’s success to Wizkid and Burna Boy, but Maphorisa was quick to correct the narrative.

The Twitter user claimed that Davido made the genre big across Nigeria and Africa.

“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,” tweeted LadyRoza_001.

DJ Maphorisa decided to set the record straight, but it seems he rubbed Davido the wrong way with his response. Maphorisa reckoned that him and Kabza made the genre a success.

“Kabza & Maphorisa was the first to put Wizkid n Burnaboy on an Amapiano song Sponono dat was a historical moment 3 years ago, research before the tweet. Also, it was the first time Wiz n Burna jumped on the same song together. let it sink in,” he tweeted.

In response, Davido accused him of being a hater and proclaimed that he never liked him, “You’ve never liked me y ? I’ve always been good to you …. Anyways! AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY NOW!!!!!! Chu chu chu chu chu,” Davido tweeted.

Maphorisa clarified that he was not fighting with him, but he was weighing in his two cents on the topic because Amapiano is a big genre that has taken the world by storm.

“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,” he responded to Davido.
