Emergence of Amapiano music, breakout, and dominance.
On the emergence of the Amapiano wave, Kabza had this to say “I had the honour to have collaborated with the likes of MRF Souls, Gaba Canal, Afrosoul Sax, Josiah, Kopzz Avenue, Tribe Franko, and many more artists in this new genre called Amapiano.”
“Many people seemed to have loved the Amapiano sounds which I breathed into the music industry,” he continued.
Kabza De Small released his first album “Avenue Sounds” back in 2016, and the DJ now 26 took 2018 by storm when he released back to back hit songs Amabele Shaya and Umshove which he also performed at Rubza’s Place in Alexandra, north of Joburg in November.
He said that his music has been given thumbs up by many industry veterans. “My music is fresh with unique sounds that cater for people of all ages,” he said.
Kabza has also worked with respected DJs in other genre’s of Afro music, most notable is his joint project with DJ Maphorisa “Scorpion Kings” which was released in May 2019.

November 2018 would never be forgotten by Amapiano and Kabza De Small fans. On releasing his two collaborations with Leehleza, Umshove and Amabele Shaya, Kabelo launched himself into a whole new level. The chemistry that existed between the DJ and the vocalist was evident on both songs.
Umshove caused such a stir that even those who had never heard the name Amapiano began to pique interest. Kabza’s fan base ultimately grew. To some, Kabza’s greatest hit so far would arguably be Umshove. But the DJ was not done with us just yet.

Just three days into the new year, Kabelo released his next song Bamba La (Original Mix), which once again featured Leehleza. If anyone needed convincing on the pure genius that the two had to offer, Bamba La would have been the icing on the cake.
Following Bamba La, Kabza had a few other releases including the Amapiano Volume 4 mix. In march he released a joint EP with Spumante and Chambers, but it was in May that Kabza solidified his position as the sure King of the Amapiano Iron Throne.
When word came out that Kabza De Small and DJ Maphorisa had a joint EP coming soon fans went into an Amapiano frenzy. Maphorisa needs no introduction in the Afro music scene, as his name is synonymous with the genre.
