Get Your AmaPiano Jab, uMalume weShowbiz Did

Read Time:3 Minute, 14 Second

Ahh! Behold, from time-to-time, some Amazing-blazing Greats Music arises. 

Stuff that prompts a ticker in uMalume weShowbiz to jump in jubilation to the sound of a health sensation. Responding, of course, would be such cultured hearts – the type inclined to do an enchanting dance to a beat – not of a macabre. But a pulse nodding to the power of a soothsaying groove. Yeah, such are things of Groovers Prayer – No Diggity.

Enters An AmaPiano Verse of Abalele

One Friday afternoon, a message from the gods of the Shesh Of I Love Music – Just As Long It Is Groovy, say…, Open an Amapiano chapter and verse. The kind enencasa ngala way ethi lahla umlenze. Easy, ne, ane.  Heke! Das right. Then press play. Yes, that also includes you – reading here.  So, coming out of your gumbafire should be iPiano elivutha umlilo. Yes, something set to set you on some African pop culture vibe. 

Talk about music rising from the feet to a heart that ultimately bursts into a golden and glorious crown jewel. It is some anchored modern-day song of urban Africa! A kind of tune to light up a listener the only way music from mother Africa can. Come now, feel the song fire. This time, the kindlers are Kabza De Small and Dj Maphorisa, featuring Ami Faku. Ehe! They come in the name of the good gods of the urban song – Aw! Abalele – the departed ancestral spirits of ingoma. Yes, it is incantations to heal a shaken heart.

The Beat Is Just Perfect On The Heartbeat  

Consequently, the song’s chant-like drums of Africa, ancient in nature, open the path. Perhaps, a channel for the sound message to flow back and forth, with ease, between spirits in material and the after-material sphere. Meanwhile, the opening of Abalele enchants, a service the song sustains until the end. Thirty-eight seconds into the tune, a lead guitar saunters to unfold a modern-up-beat bluesy-sad mood. Swiftly, the anthem ushers in a classy club scene groove- conjuring up a smoky, dim-lit vibe. Yho! Abalele is lit Bra…, or do these kids say, Bro?

Anyhow…,

Then, the number gets on an easy and gentle movement to an up-tempo floating cruise. A Moonwalk journey type of thing taken through two feet in a Drip-ing two series, sliding on a mirror dance floor. Things of seeing your reflection or life flashing on your feet. All as you dance. That is the mood, baby. Hayi izokujova baba. Kere bona! Indeed ingoma, the sound injections of Abalele can turn you into a mover and shaker of what mama gave you. Of course, in a stadig, kancane fashion. Yes, slowly and easy – without a sweat. Shake it, do not break it, now!  And you going to cry…,  

Mama Yho! Come now. Wail like you are Khabzela.

Huuh! Say what, you do not know…?  Shame on you that does not know the radio star and departed Y-FM jock – Fana Khabzela Khaba.

Vusa Balele, Has Hehaa! Classic

Therefore, sing um. Yes! Take it away, Msaki!

I am so sorry now, ngisak’thanda mna. Ah he!haa!, Uvusa abalele

Kuthi kusenjalo kungene abangoma bathi…,

Iya ho-ho! Iya ho-ho-! Iya who-o-o!

Stuff that brings to mind KaMazu Danny Malewa things of…, Hayi Yooo! Korobela. Gung-Gung-Gung-Gung! 

And in closing the song, the creative team on Abalele presents the sound of a marching band that flows back to the beginning of the cycle that started with groovy amakhosi-infused sounds. Aah! Do you feel me, Bro …, or is it Bra? Are you feeling the pull of the let us get Groovy With It? Well, then, baby, shall We Get It On with it and enjoy the ride or get ridden? Shall we? 

BurnaBoy is correct. The present African pop music phenomenon is amaPiano.
