Amapiano might be the in-thing in South Africa right now, with artistes of other genres rushing into its orbit. But Prince Kaybee is unimpressed with the genre, thinking it toffee for kids.
In dismissing amapiano and its devotees, he had indirectly fired a shot at his rival DJ Maphorisa, one of the notable figures in the world of amapiano. The songster had ditched gqom for amapiano and is doing brilliantly in the piano orbit.
Prince Kaybee had spoken about the amapiano genre and its advocates in a recent chat with his fans. A fan had asked him why he isn’t doing amapiano, and he had explained that the kids came up with the genre and should run with it.
He doesn’t care to be involved. He shared similar sentiments with another fan, explaining why he wouldn’t jump on the amapiano train. According to him, with too many “kids” on the train, momentum might be the casualty. And he doesn’t want that.
By the way, the songster also touched on other subjects apart from amapiano.
