South Africa is a country filled with humour, in times of hardship, initiates cracked Mzansi with their hilarious video clips, singing Amapiano.
Amapiano is now considered a vibe, the “it” thing in the country as of this moment. A lot is changing, traditions are evolving and that includes initiation schools. At first everything that happened at the initiation school was meant to be private, the teaching and it set by rules.
However, all that has come to a spin with initiates opting to sing amapiano during their graduation ceremonies and not the usual traditional initiation songs. This genre seems to have taken over world-wide with everything being given the Amapiano Beat and feel to it. Not so long, Adele’s new single was mixed and added with a touch of SA in it.
Gospel artist have also moved from simple gospel to adding the Amapiano to it, Busi Radebe and DJ Cleo moved the country with their mix. Artists are also shifting genres with the like of Vusi Nova now labelling himself as an Amapiano artist. This kind of moving has taken over, and now jaws are dropping as the unexpected is happening.
Initiates graduating from initiation school for becoming men, are changing the culture of how things are done, and now it is safe to say they are doing thing the “Ama 2000” way. Sangomas have also joined but they are only using songs sang at soccer matches making it their own during “Ugugita”. Welcome to South Africa, a country governed by Amapiano.
