The duo named Amaroto had amapiano lovers dancing to their hits for most of the second half of 2020. From “Jazzidiscliples (Zlele)” to “Sithi Sithi”, “Lengoma”, “VSOP”, “uLazi” and more, they have undoubtedly solidified their place within the congested amapiano scene. Their captivativing lyrics and cadences are reminiscent of kwaito, and, by virtue of that, they have won the hearts of many. Their work ethic, hit-making abilities, and close working relations with other artists and producers such as Mpura, Mr JazziQ, Busta 929 and 9umba, guarantee that they are not slowing down anytime soon and their presence will be felt even further. The sequel to their striking Amaroto EP is currently loading, and, if the first one was anything to go by, fans are in for a treat.
