How Kabza De Small surprised fans with Ami Faku collaboration

Kabza De Small surprised his fans with a live session, which teased a joint single that he worked on with Ami Faku and Daliwonga.

Kabza De Small took to Instagram Live on Monday, 2 August 2021, to share some of the new music he is working on. The live session received a lot of attention for a particular song he teased, stating that he collaborated with Ami Faku and Daliwonga. Kabza De Small has worked with the artists on other singles, however, the releases were for projects that were not Kabza De Small-led, but rather, featured him and the supporting musicians on the track.

Therefore, with Kabza De Small sharing a teaser of the single which has been dubbed as Vus’ Abalela, calls for the so-called King of Amapiano to release the single arose. Moreover, as the world has woken up to shared teasers of the single on social media, more calls have been circulating. However, it is unclear whether De Small will listen to the demand or continue to wait until the readiness of his album before releasing the single.

This is a stark contrast to De Small of 2018 and early 2019. The producer-DJ and DJ Maphorisa, who arguably populated amapiano into the mainstream scene, were weekly releasers of new music. However, Twitter users took to the fact for granted as their consistency became the butt of jokes directed at them, rather than being celebrated. Therefore, the two stopped sharing new music on the platform.

Since then, the two have used platforms like the live session and De Small’s YouTube channel to populate new music they are working on. Another unofficial single which was shared on Thursday, 29 July 2021, on YouTube was the Phuze Remix, by Dlala Thukzin and Kabza De Small, featuring Zaba and Young Stunna. In light of the furore over Vus’ Abalela’s teaser, fans have also called for the official release of the Phuze Remix.

It is unclear when De Small will release his much-anticipated sophomore amapiano album, or when Vus’ Abalela will be released as an official single too.
