It's official, SA TikTokers love amapiano. So much so that the hashtag #Amapiano ranks as the most popular music hashtag on the platform in SA, raking in over 1.3 billion views to date, a press statement revealed.

So in honour of the love the genre has been receiving, TikTok has decided to host its very first Amapiano LIVE Music Festival.

The amapiano festival will broadcast live on 10 November from 17:00 on the official TikTok South Africa account, with performances by DJ Maphorisa, Pabi Cooper, Lady D, DBN Gogo, Mr Jazzig and more, and will be hosted by Khanyisa Jaceni. 

"Join the Yanos banger to jam to songs such as Izolo, Bheka Mina Ngedwa and Ungangibambi by Mr Jazziq ft. Khanyisa. These tracks, and the genre as a whole, have managed to cement themselves in the hearts of TikTok users both locally & globally, having rooted themselves to the powerhouse that Amapiano is today," the press statement reads.
