South African rap star, Cassper Nyovest has said his country’s genre, Amapiano has now overtaken Nigeria’s Afrobeats as “the fastest growing genre in the world.”
The Hip Hop artiste made the assertion in a recent interview with Beats N Sounds, where he also expressed pride that there is finally a genre representing South Africa in the international stage.
Cassper Nyovest said; “Amapiano is taking over the music industry in the world. It is now the most popular and fastest growing genre.
“It is just great for me that we finally have a sound that is representing South Africa. Because afrobeats represented Nigeria mostly. So, the fact that we have a sound that is from South Africa and it is representing where we are from, is a beautiful thing.”
