Yebo Yess, here’s to taking SA music to the world. American singer Usher Raymond left Mzansi social media users excited and impressed when a video of him jamming to Sponono by Kabza De Small was shared online.
The footage shows the singer in a Versace ad while dancing to the South African Amapiano star’s track. Just a few months ago we saw Sean “Diddy” Combs getting down to Kabza’s hit music. And now Usher has jumped on the Amapiano wave, raising the flag high for SA. And you know what that means… Check the video out below:

Sauta, it’s our time ereng voice ya Madumane ko ig ya Usher mara he,” tweeted DJ Maphorisa.

Afrobeats is currently the leading genre in Africa. AmaPiano kinda look like a threat to the status quo and the fact that it’s a genre originating in SA is making things worse for them. I might be wrong. AmaPiano will be global regardless.

Today, Usher is using Kabza da Small song. Just the other day it was Alicia Keys and Diddy playing Focalistic.
