"Please educate us, Piano DJs. You drop a new song every week, But you play the same stuff at the gig? Go away!"

In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Speedsta recently bit off more than he can chew on social media recently when he dissed the Amapiano genre. Speedsta thinks that Amapiano DJs play the same song in their sets and he's not impressed at all. He tweeted:

"Piano DJ’s all play the same songs. John Wick 4 times a night."

John Wick is a song that is very popular in Mzansi currently and is up there with Umsebenzi Wethu. Speedsta however, thinks that they play the same songs every single night and quite frankly he's bored of it.
