2016 will always be seen as the year that DJ Maphorisa blew up. Don’t get us wrong, he had been an influential figure in African music for a while before this year, but 2016 is the year that people really stood up and took notice on a mainstream level. If any South African DJ can claim to have gone international this year, it’s him.
The DJ got to enjoy a victory lap of sorts when he performed at the Passport Experience Festival in Atlanta, USA this week, alongside some of the biggest stars in Africa like Tiwa Savage and Don Jazzy.
The DJ also got to hang out with Akon and reggae star, Shaggy, in ATL.
The DJ will be releasing his debut album in just over a month, and you can expect it to be a certified banger.
