Davido, Wizkid and other Nigeria artist tops south Africa Amapiano award nomination list

South Africa’s genre of House music, “Amapiano” took the world by storm during the pandemic and has since then steadily continued to make headway globally. The thrilling sound has since made its way to Nigerian airwaves and has been a mainstay on party floors and the playlists of disc jockeys. Nigerian artists have since made hit songs with the distinct sound and infusion of Afrobeats.

This year’s edition of the South African Amapiano awards is recognizing international artists who have made contributions to the genre such as WizkidAsakeDavido and Goya Menor.

DJ Qness, CEO of the South African Amapiano Awards says: “The South African Amapiano Awards are one of South Africa’s most anticipated music awards which look to celebrate the hottest Amapiano artists. As part of our mission “Amapiano to the world”, we will continue to push the frontiers, while showcasing the impact African music and culture is making across the world.”
