Kagiso artists rack up YouTube views with latest hit
The latest song to hit the streets of Mogale City, Woza, Lesego Dibe and Semende Ndlovu aka Semmy Lover is taking the amapiano music scene by storm and racking up views on YouTube and even other music streaming platforms.
The creative mind behind the song and accompanying music video, along with Lesego, is Koketso Mhlongo who has worked with various musical artists in the past, and who produced and filmed Woza.
Koketso said, âWe released the song amapiano for December under Universal Dreamers Production and received over 200 views in its first five days on YouTube. We started to be recognized in 2020 when we were only making films. Later, we gained notoriety with the release of the movie No Happiness. Lesego wears amapiano to the top and it is becoming popular in South Africa after releasing just one single so far. She is a singer, songwriter and actress, and her single Woza is a hit with nearly 500 views now on YouTube.
Amapiano is a genre of music close to house with a South African touch, and is a kind of mix between deep house and jazz.
âWoza is a vibrant song to be festive. It’s a song that makes everyone dance and forget the sorrows we have been facing since the start of this pandemic. We want to make people smile and help people come together. “
