Davido, Brother Queries South African Disc Jockey, DJ Maphorisa




Afrobeat icon, David Adeleke who is better known as Davido and his brother, Adewale have slammed South African disc jockey, DJ Maphorisa over his comment about Amapiano’s success in Africa.

A Twitter user had credited Davido for being the pioneer of Amapiano in Africa before Wizkid and Burna Boy joined the bandwagon.

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
