Kabza de Small is touted as the undisputed King of Amapiano. This as the one-half of the Scorpion Kings has asserted his dominance in the House Music sub-genre so much that even the general public will go to war for him and his title as has been seen in the past.

Then there is Kelvin Momo. While he might not have the title of King of Amapiano. What Kelvin Momo has achieved is being considered the best Private School Amapiano producer-DJs. So much so, that despite rarely conducting interviews or supporting visuals for his albums and singles, he is still one of the bestselling Private School Amapiano producer-DJs in the game. So much so that he received a co-sign from internationally recognised rapper Drake

In light of the two's prominence, you would think that there might be competition. However, it seems that this is the furthest from the truth in light of their recent announcement. 

Kabza de Small announce Kelvin upcoming joint album

Taking to her Twitter recently, Kabza de Small and Kelvin Momo confirmed one of the most unexpected but welcomed joint ventures. First, it was announced that the two are planning to release an official joint single titled Ufunani, which will also feature saxophonist JaySax and vocalist Aymos. However, the date for the single’s release was not confirmed. 

Moreover, the two confirmed that besides the upcoming collaborative single, they are also scheduled to release a joint EP together. Again, the date for the EP was not confirmed with the two only sharing that it is imminent.

It is no surprise that fans are excited to see what the two leading Amapiano musicians are planning to release. More so as they have in the past collaborated on music which was released through their individual projects, and they have also played DJ sets together.
However, the announcement of leading and unsuspected joint EPs from artists is quickly becoming an unexpected but welcomed surprise. This is as recently, leading Zulu native recording artists Big Zulu and Sjava surprised many with the announcement of their upcoming joint project. As reported

Fans of two of South Africa’s heavyweight entertainers Sjava and Big Zulu are in for a treat as the pair announced a joint project as ‘Inkabi Zezwe’ single slated for  24 March and an album in May with Warner Music Africa (WMA).

Inkabi Zezwe - an isiZulu term of endearment that, when used in the context of music, describes a unified brotherhood that is representative and reflective of the nation. Zezwe means 'of the Nation', simply put, Sjava & Big Zulu are two giants who have united for this once-off collaboration as an offering to the nation. The duo is set to release the first single titled ‘Umbayimbayi’.

The intermingling of traditional IsiZulu musical forms with contemporary music is the confluence at which the two artists meet; Sjava makes his way through African Trap and AfroSoul while Big Zulu boisterously asserts by way of Hip-Hop

Even with these somewhat different approaches to music, both artists share a quaint intrigue for love, hope and family with IsiZulu culture as their common ground. Consequently, a collaborative album between Sjava and Big Zulu can only highlight the rich tapestry of complex IsiZulu identities, its people, and its ambition.
