Shimza has, yet again, dismissed the suggestions by DJ Maphorisa that he should follow the current musical wave of releasing an amapiano-influenced body of work.
Shimza took to Twitter on Tuesday, 8 June 2021, to share a video he was enjoying on his timeline. The video featured a DJ playing an amapiano set with elements of electronic dance music (EDM). The Lockdown House Party executive producer used the caption to exclaim how much he was enjoying the video.
His caption seemed to have spurred DJ Maphorisa’s suggestion that he should venture into amapiano. Shimza has previously shared that he will not fall victim to the pressures of giving in to the current local musical wave of amapiano. The two continued to have friendly banter on the matter.
Shimza jokingly told DJ Maphorisa that he should stop with his tactics to attempt to co-opt him into amapiano. The producer-DJ-turned-businessman made it clear that he will stick to his genre of house, which has EDM with afro-house influences.
