Amapiano music has become much more popular in recent years with even rappers like Riky Rick and Cassper Nyovest getting in on it.

Stilo feels that hip-hop has not been doing very well during 2019, and the reason for that is that there isn't unity among the artists.

"It’s been a tough year for hip-hop, but one thing is that a lot of artists are not putting out a lot of music, and if they are putting out music, they are not putting out music together.
"The difference between hip-hop and people from other genres is that they always mix and feature each other on songs. Whereas, in hip-hop, rappers feature their friends. That’s why Amapiano is killing the game. In hip-hop there is no unity."
