Amapiano is undoubtedly one of the biggest music genres in Africa now. Originating from South Africa, the drum-heavy sound which has shifted Gqom to the side has since become mayhem across Africa.

It is fascinating to see the Nigerian music industry and its producers are owning the sound which originated from South Africa, and if things are not explicitly done, Nigerians might be responsible for making Amapiano break into the international music market.

Gradually making its way to the shores of Ghana, DJ Lord joins frenzy with an Amapiano-inspired mixtape dubbed ‘Piano & Chills’. He compiles some of the best Amapiano bops of South-African and Nigerian origin, fuses them together in this beautifully carved body of work.
