DJ Maphorisa asks Shimza and Heavy K to play Amapiano

In other music news, Briefly News reported that DJ Maphorisa took to social media recently 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 were 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."
