Nigerian DJs bastardizing the Amapiano? DJ Maphorisa reacts

DJ Maphorisa has taken Twitter to express his disapproval for the Amapiano which he was very instrumental in birthing after a video of popular Nigerian Dancer Poco Lee was seen dancing to a very high tempo version of Amapiano in a Nigerian club.

In the video, Nigerian award-winning dancer, Poco Lee was seen leg-working to an amapiano song, but what troubled Maphorisa is how the DJ manipulated the sound, by making it a fast beat.

The DJ took to Twitter, saying he doesn’t like what is being done to the genre.

“Tjo i cnt deal wat temp/bpm is this now? please dnt do this to amapiano. Busta ba go etsang?” Lawd Phori tweeted.

A lot of Piano fans felt that the sound is being disrespected and should not be allowed to continue. Some of the reactions are seen below;
