Kabza De Small narrates the emergence of Amapiano genre while on Oskido’s YouTube show named Joy Ride.
Speaking of how the genre started, he said:
- “You know how Amapiano started? The township DJs play a song with 125 beats per minute [BPM]. Then you would find other DJ’s play the same beat at 115 BPM,” he explained, adding that they would also often make mixtapes with a slower tempo.”
- “First it was remixes then Mdu came up. I don’t know what happened, I don’t know how he figured out the log drum. Amapiano has always been there but he’s the one who came up with Log drum,” explained Kabza de small.
- “These boys like experimenting, they always check out new plug in’s. So when Mdu figured it out, he ran with it. And when I got it, I jumped on the bandwagon.”
“Amapiano music is mainly Log Drum.”
