Watch! NaakMusiQ Ventures Into Amapiano – First, there was kwaito, then house and then gqom was the talk of the town.
Anga Makubalo (who is also known as NaakMusiQ took to social media to share a clip of him singing to his tune with the backdrop of Amapiano.

Amapiano isn’t only dominating dance floors all over the country, it’s taken over everything from the airwaves to township streets. It’s hard to pin down exactly where the genre fits in, but the sound combines deep house music with an upbeat jazzy piano feel.
To most, it’s a much-upgraded sound of deep house music. Think of Umshove by Kabza De Small, Long Lasting by JazziDisciples and Stories by Gaba Cannal. These are just some of the tracks that first grabbed Mzansi’s attention during the festive season.]
