Recall few hours ago, May D the “Get Down” crooner in a post on social media debunks the claims making the rounds on social media about Davido, Wizkid, Burnaboy bringing Amapiano to Nigeria as he brags that he brought the Amapiano sound to the country in 2014.
May D tweeted; “Na me bring amapiano come naija , and I have awards to prove that! We started the naija South African collaboration! I don’t like saying shit like this but y’all like putting me under the box.”
The whole heated exchange started on the popular microblogging platform, Twitter after Wizkid released an amapiano song titled “Bad To Me” today, September 14th, 2022.
Reacting to the song a Twitter user identified as @LadyRoza_001 tweeted; “Davido brought Amapiano from South Africa two years ago and made it a successful genre in Africa and Beyond, Wizkid is now hopping on the same genre after davido made it a successful genre. This is how many African artists have been benefiting from Davido’s success for over 12yrs.”
Reacting popular South African Disc Jockey, DJ Maphoriza who is friend to Wizkid, Davido, Burnaboy and some other top Nigerian artistes debunks the claim as he gives credits to Wizkid and Burnaboy over Amapiano’s success in Africa.
DJ Maphoriza tweeted; “Kabza & Maphorisa was the first to put Wizkid n Burnaboy on a amapiano song Sponono dat was a historical moment 3 years ago, research before tweet also it was the first time Wiz n Burna jumped on a same song together let it sink in .”
Reacting Davido carpets DJ Maphoriza, he tweeted; “You’ve never liked me y ? I’ve always been good to you …. Anyways ! AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY NOW!!!!!! Chu chu chu chu chu.”
Davido who believes he is the one that brought and influenced the real Amapiano into the Nigerian music industry slams May D who claims that he brought Amapiano to Nigeria and even won a SAMBA award with it in a song titled “Happiness” featuring South African singer, Mafikizilo.
