DJ Maphorisa has been saying he’s the greatest there is as far as SA music is concerned and, finally, Mzansi agrees.
Known for his versatility and as the man behind many hits, Maphorisa’s name made it on the trends list, the producer getting a resounding nod for making sure people enjoy 2019 with all the hits he and Kabza composed this year.
Though he’s lapping up the praise now, Maphorisa has received his fair share of criticism from people who said he was riding Kabza’s wave and “overworking” him.
Seeming unfazed, in July Maphorisa shared on Twitter that the hate would not stop his shine.
“Everyone wants a piece of Scorpion Kings. Haters want it down on platforms. Guys are jealous (of me), saying I am using Kabza.
Why all this hate while everyone loves this project? Since Kabza started working with me has he ever missed a gig? So we don’t deserve it?”

It might have taken Mzansi a long time to recognise Maphorisa for the hits he makes, but like the good old saying goes, “Better late than never”, right?
Here is what some people had to say about Lawd Porry:
This guy is responsible for production on a MINIMUM OF 10 SONGS that are played in every event(parties, clubs, get-togethers, etc.) that is taking place in South Africa this December 2019!
