South Africa saw talented artists present their full bodies of work for the nation to listen to so we thought it’d be interesting to rank our top 10 SA projects that were released in April 2021.

Top 10 SA projects: Amapiano and Hip-Hop dominate yet again!

We tried looking at a whole range of genres to incorporate into our list.

However, it seems like Amapiano and Hip-Hop are the biggest genres in Mzansi, especially with the impressive projects we received.

This was one of the soul projects that impressed in April.
