Ghanaian Born UK-based Afrobeat DJ cum artist DJ Paak has revealed that he will be releasing a new EP that would reflect his love for the trending South African music genre, Amapiano.
The Afrobeat DJ Cum Artist further on went to explain exclusively to YesGhanaOnline that “Growing up in the UK , I surrounded myself with a lot of Zimbabweans and South African who eventually got me listening to their house music . It grew up on me and I fell in love with it. I started playing SA and Zim gigs and I became the talk of the town. “Who is this Ghanaian boy taking over from the native DJs” When I first heard Amapiano, I knew it was going to be a future problem. Till this day, that’s all I ever listen to and my friends hate me for that. I love Amapiano so much that, I will be releasing an Amapiano EP very soon,”.DJ PAAK
