Earlier, Briefly.co.za had reported on the release of his new album, king of Amapiano Kabza De Small has dropped his much-anticipated fire album and it has a whole 27 tracks.
The album is titled... wait for it... I Am The King Of Amapiano: Sweet and Dust. It features some of the best vocalists and musos in the game currently.
Nigerian superstars Burna Boy and Wizkid are also on the album. According to social media posts, Sponono - the song that features both the artists and one of Mzansi's fave rappers, Cassper Nyovest - is one of the faves on the album.
Vocalists Daliwonga, Samthing Soweto, Mlindo The Vocalist and Nia Pearl, among others, are also featured on the project.
The hashtags #IAmTheKingOfAmapiano and #kabzadesmall have been trending on Twitter since the album dropped just after midnight.
"It's 27 tracks because he is 27 years old and Kabza was born on the 27th of November plus he usually gets 2-7 hours of sleep!!"
"You can say whatever you want about the Amapiano sound but this album is fire."
"Today is The National Day of @KabzaDeSmall_."
Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Tira took to social media to challenge DJ Maphorisa to drop new music on the same date as him. Tira had heard tha Maphorisa's artist and usual collaborator, Kabza, was to release his album on 26 June. Makoya Bearings had also promised to drop an EP on the same date to celebrate 21 years in the music industry.
On Friday Tira tweeted:
"Thank you Jesus. 21 Years later I’m still alive and kicking. #Uyandazi feat @BeritaAfroSoul from my EP #21YearsOfDjTira is now available. Thank you for supporting me, enjoy the good music. P.S. I’m only warming up."
