Maphorisa in response to a Davido fan who opined that Davido brought Amapiano from South Africa two years ago and made it a successful genre in Africa and beyond, while berating Wizkid for jumping on the genre after Davido made it commercially successful.
“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”.
That didn’t sit well with DJ Phori who responded that Kabza & Maphorisa was the first to put Wizkid and Burnaboy on an amapiano song “Sponono that made historical moment 3 years ago.
He advised the fan to research before tweeting.
He ended with Wizkid’s emoji Eagle and love emoji.
This rattled Davido who swiftly responded that DJ Maphorisa never liked him.
“You’ve never liked me y ? I’ve always been good to you …. Anyways ! AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY NOW!!!!!! Chu chu chu chu chu”
DJ Maphorisa responded thus:
