Scorpion Kings (Kabza De Small & DJ Maphorisa) With EP & Album Projects Contributed To Amapiano Scene

All the Amapiano EPs and Albums joint released by the Scorpion Kings (DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small)

Here’s a full list of all the Amapiano EP and Album projects that have been released by Scorpion Kings (Kabza De Small and DJ Maphorisa) so far.

We know it feels like that but it hasn’t been long since Kabza De Small and DJ Maphorisa announced their partnership. The two revealed that they had partnered up to form a duo called Scorpion Kings. Following their debut to the scene, the duo became responsible for some of the biggest Amapiano hits to take over the airwaves. Indeed, the aim of the new partnership became quite obvious after they had flooded the airwaves with amazing Amapiano tunes.

It would seem that with every blink of the eye, the duo drops a new song to the airwaves. Thanks to their contribution, Amapiano has become the reigning king of all genres in SA right now. Each day, a new recruit joins the charge and delivers even more hits to the airwaves further broadening its reach. That’s how much the two Disc Jokeys have popularised the genre.

Following their debut in 2019, things got more interesting as they followed up with more songs and even better features. We must say, they proved that they had come to stay with the release of “Amantombazane” featuring Samthing Soweto and MFR Souls. The song fast became one of the biggest songs in the country after its release.

They have since followed it up with even bigger hits, and features from notable names including Busiswa, Sha Sha, Cassper Nyovest, to mention a few. In under one year, Scorpion Kings have dropped a total of 6 musical projects, all of which have been huge successes.

They first announced their dominance with the “Scorpion Kings EP”, and Mzansi responded by eating up, and later on, followed it up with the other albums. Here’s a rundown of all 6 projects.
