Strongly dominating South African pop culture is a genre that consists of striking piano cuts, blustering drums, and synthesizers that make up the Amapiano sound.
This culture (Amapiano) is freshly penetrating the clubs of Nigeria in tons of creative songs; the culture grew widely and expanded from South Africa’s mainstream into Nigerian demography where it has been regarded by me as the birth of the most creative songs ever, since 2020 till date.
Because Amapiano structures songs astounding; it makes them a typical different feel that holds an exceptional touch, with a ledger that has recorded its intense creativity. The blustering drums and synth make your body move, while the piano creates an embodied rhythm you are bound to enjoy.
Amapiano culture exists in songs dominating Nigerian clubhouse as it focuses on fulfilling a purpose that bounds amongst its Nigerian creators, the listeners, and the body that tweaks on the dance floor resonate differently.
While the Disc jockey is scratching and plays an Afro-pop song, and finally lands on Amapiano, the rockers on the dance floors go wild into a creative twist mostly when it accompanies the thick fusion of South African “house music” drill.

The electronic sound that bounces and jumps off, fester’s a great effect that is quite intense. The purpose simply hits them to feel differently. They move and enjoy each sequencing.
Nigerian music creators have conceived a spectrum of creative songs inherently from Amapiano culture, a couple of acts have invested records with its special sound that have earned their creations strong exceptionality that has spoken for itself in Nigerian clubs and party halls.
I asked a very clever stripper who rocks Rema’s “Woman” two weeks ago at a clubhouse in Port-Harcourt, Old GRA, about the Amapiano, after too many conversations and she confesses, “Amapiano hits differently”, The stripper, Amanda says with a bonafide grit and continued her fun, dancing and rocking back.
Well, the Amapiano genre is a very creative dance exec, implored from its nature distinctively – it is notable and speaks for itself.
Nigerian Dj’s mix songs together imploring its uniqueness, artistes remix the version of their original songs lingering Amapiano and it has entirely served as the new birth of artistic creativity.
Rema’s 2020 “Woman” & 2021 “Bounce” is Amapiano invested and it speaks for the club dealers, it is a very creative ornament that clothes the clubhouses, the strippers, drinkers, and head nods that enjoy the fun at the club with Amapiano’s spectrum lacing out.
Niniola’s “Addicted” holds and shoves a range of Amapiano culture down the thin line with South African “house” duet; her sophomore album, “Colors and Sounds” speaks completely out of its very fashion.
Even DJ Kaywise’s “High Way” featuring Phyno is strong and creative.
Kizz Daniel’s “Currency” featuring Olamide, is amazing, so is every mainstream Amapiano record, creatively worthy. The transition of Amapiano’s creativity continues to grow in phases, both with old and new creations.
B-Red’s recent “Lekki Roundabout”, falls in line into its spring well filled with creative minions that rows and amplifies her sting; it would continue to birth more records even after now.
Shout out to its South African creators, who’ve given Nigerian acts second thoughts to create music that ends in such a creative form of simplicity that might stay their art longer with listeners.
Amapiano is quite a credible sound and very effective to work the simple hit magic.
