Producer and recording artist, DJ Maphorisa, took to Twitter to address why he stopped producing gqom music and has now started producing amapiano music.
DJ Maphorisa was candid about his decision to stop producing gqom music on Thursday, 23 January 2020. The one half of the Scorpion Kings revealed that he stopped producing gqom music after constantly being told that he is not from Durban by Durban-based gqom producers and DJs. He ended his tweet by stating that his decision to move to producing amapiano was influenced by the sound belonging to South Africa as whole, rather than a specific region in the country.
