Opinions are divided as to why amapiano is selling fast in South Africa and making inroad in other nations. It appears like there would not be a consensus about that anytime soon.
Well, the latest to join the debate is Mzansi singer and dancer Uncle Vinny. He said when hip hop was introduced to the public, it had vernacular and people could relate to it. So South Africans jumped on it.
On amapiano, he said the genre follows just after gqom, and with a slower tempo, it accommodates those who can dance and those who cannot dance. He said one can dance to amapiano and still look cool.
By the way, Uncle Vinny recently shut down Braamfontein in Johannesburg when he celebrated his birthday. Thousands of fans thronged the streets to share that moment with him.
So impressive was the crowd that the birthday party trended on Twitter, with DJ Tira and other celebs hailing him.
