Amid the snarl of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, South African musician Focalistic managed to wow the Rainbow Nation. He ultimately ended up winning MTV Base’s Hottest MC tag, beating several notable names in the industry.
While some were happy for his win and loudly applauded him, others thought he doesn’t deserve what he got. Focalistic is pleased with his win. But the hate directed at him because of it has made him take a radical turn.
Previously, he was known a part of South Africa’s hip hop orbit. Now the songster has veered into amapiano because of the hate directed at him when he won MTV Base’s hip hop scudetto.
His leap into the amapiano orbit might turn out a blessing for followers of the genre, after all. The songster looks set to deliver the same magic in amapiano. Already, he’s in contact with one of the genre’s major voices, the Piano king DJ Maphorisa, whom he calls his hero.
The two artistes are reportedly working on a new song together – a piece of news that’s currently sending waves of excitement in South Africa’s amapiano universe. Are you looking forward to the two artistes collaborating? Let us know in the comment section below.
