Influential international music magazine, DJ Mag, has listed Vth Season’s rising star, Nhlonipho, as one of the most exciting Amapiano producers right now. Nhlonipho earns this nod off the strength of his capability to bridge the boundary of groove-laden Amapiano undertones with its serene counterpart, Deep House Music.
Nhlonipho’s latest accolade comes ahead of his new single release, Simoja, with Luyolo featuring out this Friday.
Nhlonipho originating from a choral music background, made an expert display of song arrangement for his latest EP: Life I Got. From “Impi (feat. Shuffle Muzik),” “Life I Got (feat. Manu WorldStar),” “Myekeni (feat. Titow)”, and the latest single “Uzanini”, the standout elements of Choral music akin to Gospel music takes a riveting pop culture detour with their intricate incorporation into Amapiano.
It is the Afrosoul flare overarching in the soundscape and stylistic lyrical content filled with quotables from folks from all walks of life, be it the African spiritual child who loves cultural parables to the groove child who appreciates a groove chant that has given “Life I Got” Nhlonipho a pivoting nod as a producer to watch in 2022.
