Since its inception as a music genre , Amapiano has brought with it much fresh talent like ‘Mr Hit’ himself Daliwonga.
Daliwonga – full name Daliwonga Matiwane – has been dropping hit after hit since 2019 under Maphorisa’s Blaqboy Records. He has collaborated with acts like Kabza De Small, Sha Sha and even the King Monada himself on a song called ‘Tester’ last year – which is still doing the rounds on commercial radio stations.
Born in Diepkloof, Soweto, Daliwonga will take you to the moon and back with a soft but very present voice much like Samthing Soweto.
The artist, who is also a poet, rides Amapiano instruments with clever lyrics that tell a tale – when not complaining about something, like in his latest release Moya with Aymos who is another promising act in Maphorisa’s stable.
In the Moya which has reached over 200,000 views in just one month on YouTube, he says people are expecting so much from him that he can’t even catch a breath.
After his album ‘Chameleon’ which was released last year did very well for an upcoming artist we can comfortably put Daliwonga’s name on the list of artists to look out for in 2021.
