- Amos, who was called for a South African music award, described his voice as Afro-Yano, a combination of Afro-Soul and Amapiano.
The music maker, who decided to combine the two to bridge the gap between Afro and Amapiano, said he wasn’t always a fan of the genre or remixed his songs but quickly realized he had nothing to lose.
The move was in his favor. He continued to work with heavyweights such as Zakes Bantwini, Mas Musiq, Prince Kaybee, DJ Maphorisa, and Kabza De Small. Amos started his career by attending his church. So it was a big problem for him when church members asked him to sing.
“I see it as an opportunity that I can take advantage of. It started in 2012 when I first became a pianist; then I realized I could sing, and when he gave me a microphone. “I haven’t looked back since then,” he said.
He said the former persuaded his parents to give him a full-time music career. However, once this is solved, another challenge arises. “I had to work on creating the perfect song and finding the perfect producer and team to work with. That alone made it impossible.” “Then I have to worry that people will believe me because everyone has their program. There are no concerts.
“In 2020, when the key was hit, it hit hard. It was the most challenging part of my life.” Even so, he accepted the disappointment with his move and moved on, seeing people like DJ Sbu, who he thought could be an inspiration to young people.
“He inspires, empowers and motivates young people. You can’t see it and become quiet and stupid. “He was very uncompromising when he encouraged and strengthened us as young people. “Whether it’s in entrepreneurship, musicianship, or medicine, he always motivates us to do better and build a legacy for the next generation.
“And the fact that it came from my hood was also the icing on the cake because now I know it’s possible,” Amos says that in a challenging and demanding industry, he needs his time, energy, and emotions to come out. “I did my best and invested a lot of time, energy, emotions, and feelings. I have to fight for it no matter what.
“The feeling was to give up; it was never an option. But, I’ve seen myself become a great artist, so I didn’t think I’d ever let go until I got to this point; I’m continuing Based on music.” Celebrating Youth Day on June 16, the artist believes he owes his freedom to the students who took part in the Soweto rebellion. “I believe that today we can walk around freely, we can have elections, and we have rights because of them.”
