- DJ Maphorisa has asked DJ Shimza and Heavy K to start playing Amapiano music for their fans in order to grow the genre
- Shimza and Heavy K are against Phori's idea and they told him that they'll stick to playing house music on their sets
- Music fans also shared that Shimza and Heavy K should stick to playing dance music because not everyone is a fan of Amapiano
DJ Maphorisa took to social media at the beginning of this week and asked DJ Shimza, Heavy K and Black Coffee to play Amapiano on their sets.
Phori believes that the genre will grow even bigger internationally if these three famous musicians played more Amapiano songs for their fans across the globe.
Shimza and Heavy K are against the star's idea. They took to his comment section on Facebook and shared their thoughts on his request. In his reply seen by Briefly News, Shimza said:
"We can’t all do the same thing because we all have different goals and paths in our careers, ma brother. You guys are doing perfectly fine without us and it’s amazing to watch from the outside! Keep going! We here to support."
Heavy K responded:
"Me I can handle both House and Amapiano, Porry. It marks 10 years of Heavy K this year and I’ll be introducing my other production strong points. It’s necessary for me. To my day-one fans, I’ll never leave you behind but allow me to experiment."
