Kwiish SA, whose actual name is Lehlohonolo Marota, has become a South African amapiano celebrity unexpectedly. This extremely competent South African Dj, producer/remixer, born in 1998 and raised in Vosloorus, is creating a major reputation for himself in the Amapiano scenes.
Kwiish mastered the basics of DJing by utilizing DJ equipment kept in the family’s house at night. In 2013, he began his career as a DJ, then in 2014, he began creating his own songs. Since then, Kwiish has given amapiano’s blend of gqom, deep house, and jazzy keyboards his own touch.
With his 2018 hit song “Gong Gong,” he has been hailed as the Prince of Amapiano, and many people attribute him with bringing Amapiono out of the shadows and into the public. On tracks like “Lagos,” from his 2020 album “East Network,” which lopes along on eloquent drums and something resembling the nocturnal sounds of electronic invertebrates, he embraces amapiano’s sensuous side and explores its more experimental possibilities on tracks like “Sondela,” featuring female vocalist LoveBlack.
Kwiish Sa is a multi-genre producer that creates Amapiano/Afro House/Commercial and Soulful House. “Ka Painelwa,” which features the soulful Steven Lee Lewis, and “LiYoshona,” which has Malumnator, Njelic, and Demthuda, are two of his collaborations.
Expect tremendous things from this highly talented and brilliant young man as he explores with a distinct style within the Amapiano sound, one that sets him apart from many others.
