Even DJ Zinhle celebrated him on Father's Day because he is just that amazing, "In a day and age where there is so much going on, we take time out to celebrate a different class of men, Those who go to unimaginable lengths to ensure that their families are kept and taken care off.

"Being celebrated today just not as a public figure but as a father is a feeling like no other,"
he thanked.

There has always been a debate about who is the true pioneer of Amapiano and Kabza's name always pops up because he was one of the original makers of the genre. He worked on the sound since the late 2000s before the genre gained popularity.

Together with the help of DJ Maphorisa and Blaqboy, he created a brand Scorpion Kings which is giving these other musos a run for their monies.
