Sizwe Alakine (Reason) Set to Drop Riky Rick Inspired ”Rapiano” Album

Must Read

Former Motif Records rapper Sizwe Moeketsi, known as the rapper Reason or more recently the Amapiano artist Sizwe Alakine is enjoying his ride in the South African Amapiano world since making the switch from Hip Hop to Yanos last year. The Katlehong-born artist after delivering a string of hits and collaborations with Maphorisa, Young Stunna and others, is now ready to release his debut Amapiano project titled ‘Alakine World.’

Sizwe took to social media to announce the arrival of the project and the huge inspiration he got from the lat SA hip hop veteran Riky Rick.

He shared a statement highlighting how he does not care about naysayers who think a former now-doing Amapiano is ”selling out.” The statement also shows how he got a co-sign and ”go ahead” from Riky Rick who branded Alakine’s version of rap fused Amapiano as ‘Rapiano.’ Since then Alakine has been describing his sounds as Rapiano.

He also called for unity between practitioners of hip hop and Amapiano instead of both camps warring against each other.

“Musicians and producers who don’t see a separation between Rap and Amapiano. But instead, see a combination that brings life to something new, fresh, and poetic for the youth of South Africa, Reason said.
