There is no denying the impact that Amapiano have had in the Mzansi music scene, with the fast pace that The Scorpion Kings are able to produce an album, it is no wonder the Yano's have been dominating during the National lockdown.

So it isn't surprising that international artists are also appreciating the music genre, the famous African-American rapper, Ludacris who holds Gabonese citizenship and has been known to enjoy South African music.

A few months ago, Ludacris posted a story where he and his kids where jamming to Prince KayBee's Gugulethu featuring Indlovukazi, Supta and Afro Brotherz. The recognition definitely made Prince Kaybee's day.

A few weeks ago Nasty C's shared on his Instagram account, the famous African-American rapper and actor playing his much-loved song Black & White, featuring Ari Lennox. Nasty C even went as far as advising Ludacris to stream his full 20-track album.

In a recent Tweet, DJ Maphorisa thanks Ludacris for sharing his music and also goes on to tag Kabza De Small, Mas Musiq & Riky Rick, who are also featured on the piano hit "Mthande". Ludacris is clearly enjoying the music while smoking on a cigar inside a jacuzzi.
Immediately afterwards, Riky Rick retweets the video and suggests that they need to produce a video for the hit song. Much to the excitement of their fans, some of which even suggested that Ludacris should get a verse on the track.
"If you can get him to drop a verse in one song u know he'd fuck it up too coz that man is hell versatile. Well done Madumane", said one Tweep.

While other fans thought it was time for Amapiano to go international, especially because the music genre would fit well with Hispanic people from Chicago and Maphorisa is well established on the international music scene.

Another Tweep said, "Been waiting on y'all to bring amapiano here since January!!!!!!" under Maphorisa's Tweet and also commented "Chicago needs that #amapiano sound. It really peaks interest in the Hispanics I work with.. Woza!!"
The local house music industry seems to be making a global impact during this lockdown, with Master KG’s Jerusalema being recognised by different groups of people across the world, Christiano Ronaldo and even Janet Jackson going on to tag Master KG twice on her Tweets. 

Clearly The Scorpion Kings are missing out on making serious money overseas, given the comments section and maybe it's time to take Amapiano to the world.

Which international artists would be a great collab with Amapiano?
