Amapiano maestro DJ Maphorisa provoked mixed reactions online when he threatened to embarrass a resident DJ who had tried to take over while Phori was still at the decks and enjoying himself.
Some social media users thought he overreacted. Some wondered if he was still playing when his time was up. And yet others thought he should just have allowed the DJ, who’s probably not well known, take over.
Some resident Dj’s have fucked up mentality i swear thinking its competition🤌🏿

And yet there were others who said they would have sent Maphorisa out if he had played beyond his allotted time, and let the resident DJ take over.
By the way, DJ Maphorisa is one of South Africa’s better known DJ hands. Just recently, he had asked DJs of other genres to start playing amapiano. The response from Shimza, another famous DJ, wasn’t exactly favourable.
However, Heavy K, a DJ and producer, was in for the challenge. He showed Phori how easily he transitioned from house music to amapiano while playing his set. He topped off by even releasing an amapiano song titled “Usile.”
