Some arguably the greatest all-around artist in Mzansi Cassper Nyovest saw and did something about, the multi-award-winning musician first collaborated with DJ Sumbody to release two Amapiano songs Monate mpolaye and Remote control.
Mufasa went on to release Siyathandana earlier this year featuring Boohle and was first met with disapproval from his fellow Hip Hop artists until the song became one of the biggest in the country.

Big Cass has been calling for recognition from fellow Hip Hop artists who have followed in his footsteps and joined the amapiano family.
He took to his Facebook page to share his thoughts about he paved the way for them.
But a South African hip hop legend Kwesta doesn't share the same sentiments as Nyovest, Dakar who has been in the game for well over a decade now has had a good relationship with Cassper and they even release a hit song N'gud together back in 2016.
Kwesta feels rappers who are not good can survive better in the Amapiano genre, a direct response to Cassper? A question that will surely get answered soon.
