Shimza has revealed that he is set to release his first amapiano-influenced single, as he has remixed the hit single, Vula Mlomo by Musa Keys, featuring Sir Trill and Nobantu Vilakazi.
Shimza took to Twitter on Tuesday, 27 July 2021, to confirm that he is set to release a new single. The afro-tech producer-DJ shared the post revealing that he has been enlisted for the remix of the amapiano hit single, Vula Mlomo by Musa Keys, featuring Sir Trill and Nobantu Vilakzi. The announcement comes as a surprise, considering Shimza’s previous stance on amapiano.
Earlier this year, Shimza was one of the producer-DJs who asserted that they would not follow the wave of mainstream musicians exploring the current local dominant sound. Shimza was so insistent that DJ Maphorisa and himself had a comical back-and-forth, with Maphorisa attempting to change Shimza’s stance. Therefore, in light of the upcoming single announcement, it seems that Shimza has succumbed to the pressure.
However, considering the musicality of the producer-DJ, the Vula Mlomo Remix will most likely straddle between amapiano and Shimza’s signature sound. The single is expected for release on Friday, 30 July 2021.
