- Mzansi rapper, Stilo Magolide, has explained why he's convinced Amapiano music is surpassing hip-hop
- The genre has been gaining a lot of traction with musicians and has become very popular in the past few years
- According to Stilo, it's because there is just no unity among hip-hop artists
However, many musicians feel that Amapiano is taking over and overtaking hip-hop these days.
One such musician is Stilo Magolide, who explained during an interview with TimesLIVE why he feels that way.
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."
He might have a valid point - Briefly.co.za knows that there are many feuds in the hip-hop industry, most noticeably that of AKA and Cassper.
