“I can’t really mention them because we are currently holding a competition and the top three will get to perform live at the event and sell themselves to the audience.”

When asked about how he feels about Amapiano he said that he doesn’t have any problem with the genre.

“Amapiano is the biggest thing right now and it is doing so well, if I had a problem with it, I wouldn’t have featured the likes of DJ Maphorisa and Samthing Soweto to perform at the event.”
