Thuli Pongolo joins the #Amapainototheworld Movement


Thuli P joins a new music show as a judge. Without a shadow of doubt Amapiano is a movement, taking over the world at large by storm and it’s beautiful to witness.

The genre is proudly South African and a number of our stars have performed it on international stages. While on her visit here in South Africa, American singer Kelly Rowland danced to Amapiano at Bontle Modiselle dance studios. Proving once more that the genre is loved locally and abroad.

It’s trending worldwide on TikTok. The videos on the social media platform are simply out of this world. What a time to be South African, black and gifted.

Amapiano (isiZulu for “the pianos”) is a style of house music that emerged in South Africa in 2012. It is a hybrid of deep house, jazz and lounge music characterized by synths, airy pads and wide percussive basslines.

There is a new Amapiano Music show in town. Amapiano’s next superstar, will pair music producers with vocalists who will compete against each other to be Amapiano’s next superstar.

Jack of all trades Robot Boi has been announced as the host of the new music show. He will host alongside Amapiano sensation Bontle Smith.

Jazziq, Thuli P and Dj Qbess will be the judges on Amapiano’s next Superstar show. Auditions for the show are now open.

Thuli P took to social media to share the news:

“Please join me as I go on a journey to uncover amapiano’s next superstar. Auditions are open from today till 30th of June. I’m so excited to announce that I will be one of your judges and hope to see you on that stage.”

#Amapianototheworld We can’t wait for the show!!!!
