Music producer, Samklef has joined his colleagues to react to the current Amapiano Saga, as he crowns Wizkid as the number one African Influencer.

Nollygistvibes earlier reported that Wizkid’s new song, ‘Bad To Me’, a fusion of Amapiano and soul, caused unrest among popular singers David Adeleke known as Davido and Akinmayokun Awodumila, known as May D.

The internet was set on fire with reactions after May D tried to take the glory of introducing Amapiano style of music to Nigeria, while fans of Davido claimed the ‘Dami Duro’ singer introduced the sound.

Amapiano is a style of house music that emerged in South Africa in 2012. It is a hybrid of deep house, jazz and lounge music

This drama started when a tweep claimed that Davido introduced the Amapiano sound from South Africa two years ago and made it a successful genre of music in Africa and beyond.

“Davido brought Amapiano from South Africa two years ago and made it a successful genre in Africa, and Beyond, Wizkid is now hopping on the same genre after davido made it a successful genre.

“This is how many African artists have been benefiting from Davido’s success for over 12yrs.”

DJ Maphorisa, who countered the claim, disclosed that Burnaboy and Wizkid were the first to make the song historical three years ago.

He tweeted: “Kabza & Maphorisa was the first to put Wizkid n Burnaboy on a amapiano song Sponono dat was a historical moment 3 years ago, research before tweet  also it was the first time Wiz n Burna jumped on a same song together  let it sink in.”

DJ Maphorisa’s tweet did not sit well with Davido, who claimed the former had never liked him.

Amidst these dramas, singer May D took to Twitter to reveal that he was the origin of the Amapiano sound in Nigeria. Furthermore, he claimed he had awards to prove he brought the sound to Nigeria before Davido took over.

In a fresh post, Music producer, Samklef, beckoned on everyone to remove envy and jealousy from their mindsets as everybody can shine just like the stars in the sky.

Samklef who however stated that haters will continue to bark like dogs regardless, declared Wizkid as the number one African Influencer because after he ran Amapiano, ‘everywhere scattered’.

“…Make we no ague after today. Wizkid na number 1 African influencer. As e run amapiano now everywhere scatter.

“…The 1st and biggest fans b4 any in Nigeria afrobeats culture na wizkid Fc in as much sometimes some of dem dey always disrespect me. But it’s all love”
