Amanda Black Would Be A Great Amapiano Artist, Agree? - Opinion

Amanda Benedicta Antony, known professionally as Amanda Black, is a South African singer and composer. On July 24, 1993, she was born. She became famous in 2016 after the release of her hit tune "Amazulu," which was nominated for numerous music awards.

Amazulu (2016), her debut studio album, was a commercial triumph and earned her prizes for "Album of the Year," "Best Newcomer of the Year," "Best Female Artist of the Year," and "Best R&B Soul/Reggae Album."

In 2019, she was crowned Apple Music's most-streamed artist.

Mnyama, Amanda's third studio album, came out in 2021. The two singles that preceded it were "Kutheni Na" and "Let It Go."

She began singing at an early age in church and at school, and she continued until she was twelve years old, when she attended talent shows and was exposed to stage performance.

She competed in three seasons of Idols South Africa, but it wasn't until she reached the top seven in Season 11 that she became a fan favorite. In January 2016, she relocated to Johannesburg to pursue her music career, and Ambitiouz Entertainment approached her and offered her a recording contract.

She released "Amazulu," the first official single from her debut studio album, on July 1, 2016. On YouTube, the song has nearly 4 million views. Through Ambitiouz Entertainment, she released Amazulu, her long-awaited debut album, to commercial success and positive critical acclaim on November 11, 2016.

The album sold over 31,000 copies in less than a month after its release, earning it platinum certification from the Recording Industry of South Africa. She was also nominated for five awards at the 16th Metro FM Music Awards and the 2017 South African Music Awards. At the 2017 BET Awards, she was also nominated for Viewers' Choice Best International Act.

She released "Kutheni Na" alongside Kwesta as the album's second single on June 4, 2021. Her third single, "Let It Go," was released on July 2, 2021. Her third studio album, Mnyama, was released on August 6, 2021.

Amanda Black is a fantastic artist with a lot of potential. She makes good music, but perhaps she should branch out and try something new, such as Amapiano. On an Amapiano track, she may sound wonderful.... Do you agree with me?
