After building up anticipation for the song on social media, Kabza De Small and Dj Maphorisa finally released Abalele featuring Ami Faku on Friday morning.
Kabza De Small, DJ Maphorisa finally drop ‘Abalele’ featuring Ami Faku
In the past week, the Scorpion Kings played the song on their Instagram Live and people could not wait for the official release to drop.
The Amapiano genre is relatively new to South Africa, however, the collaborative work of DJs like Kabza and Maphorisa together with vocalists like Faku has made it one of the most-listened-to genres in the country.
Abalele carries a deep house combined with a jazz melody and has singer Faku taking you on a journey of forgiveness and right into your feelings.
Abalele sounds like a song that will have a massive appeal because of its relatable story of forgiveness. DJ Maphorisa and the ‘piano king’ have given South Africa another summer hit.
