DJ Shimza & DJ Maphorisa To Collaborate


What started off as a request by DJ Maphorisa to ask DJ Shimza to play more Amapiano music might have just started the net big show in South Africa. It looks like we can expect a fusion of Afro tech and the Yanos very soon.


Madumane was just hoping that Shimza could play his genre of music for once, maybe because in all of Shimza’s sets, he never dabbles in the Yanos.

“Can we ask Shimza to start playing Amapiano on his sets please, i wanna see something”

Shimza jokingly responded by asking Maphorisa to stop annoying him, making reference to when he got into trouble and was almost cancelled by Black Twitter. Back in April Shimza insulted an up and coming DJ by the name of Ceega Wa Meropa, when he responded to his countless Tweets and said, he needs to stop harassing him, it is annoying. Shimza was then labelled rude for looking down on an upcoming DJ and reminded that he was once in a struggling DJ himself, hustling and trying to make it work. Shimza eventually issued an apology and acknowledged his mistake after being called out by Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.


Luckily, Tweeps understood the joke and DJ Shimza suggested that they do a show together, to showcase the different genres and bring them together in one epic event.


“@DjMaphorisa how about a show and we call it “Best of Both Worlds” you curate a piano line up and I curate the Afro Tech line up? Go nyiwe once! Think about it!”

DJ Maphorisa immediately agreed to the idea and even suggested that Prince Kaybee be invited to also play on the line-up, just not the Amapiano line-up.


“lets cav #BestOfBothWorlds sounds dope mara bo Shimi ba nakgana damn. Plus add Princess on ur side”

Even though Maphorisa and Prince Kaybee always beef online, Madumane suggested that he be added to the line-up, this may be because Maphorisa actually regards Prince Kaybee as one of the best DJ’s in the country. Whatever the reason may be, it seems he didn’t take Prince Kaybee’s Tweet about him looking like a Lion Lager beer bottle to heart.

Shimza and Maphorisa are yet to share more details about the show or who else will be on the lineup but we know for sure that Kabza De Small, Prince Kaybee and Darque City will be on the two lineups.
