- Reason feels that vulgar Amapiano music is easier to make and sell, just like it is in the hip-hop genre
Sports personality Mpho Letsholonyane sparked quite a debate when she asked her social media followers why Amapiano is becoming so vulgar.
Local rapper, Reason, got in on the discussion and shared his opinion on the matter. According to him, it's because sex sells.
Reason and another Twitter user debated and a tweep, identified only as @AmaPiano, says it's an exaggeration to say that the music genre is vulgar.
As reported on by TimesLIVE, the tweep had a lot to say in defence of Amapiano.
"There may be a few amapiano songs that would fail the moral scrutiny of some people, but to say that the genre is becoming crass is an exaggeration. There are thousands of amapiano songs, most of them with no lyrical accompaniment, and many others with 'clean' lyrics."
Reason agreed with the person but added that as someone looking at the genre from a distance, the vulgar music seems to be the most popular, much like it does with hip-hop.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Reason ended the discussion by saying that it seems like the vulgar music is easier to make and sell, which is why it will be the most popular and available of the genres.
