At this rate, it appears like there’s no end in sight to the debate about South African hip hop.  Businessman Sizwe Dhlomo has just joined the conversation, wondering in a tweet what went wrong with the genre.

In his tweet, Sizwe Dhlomo implied there had been halcyon days in rap in South Africa but that those days are long gone. He then asked if his fans knew what went wrong. He was responding to a tweet by TreySA.

TreySA had suggested that since the introduction of “young cats” like Nasty C, A-Reece and others, the older generation felt the pressure because the attention was going to the younger musicians. Apparently, things have not remained the same.

Sizwe Dhlomo’s take isn’t at all surprising. For a while now, a common narrative is that South African hip hop is dead buried, some critics would say, by amapiano. Some wouldn’t be dragged into the debate, however.

One such person is AKA. In a recent tweet, he noted that he doesn’t care as long as South African music is punishing the charts. His rival Cassper Nyovest shares similar views. In a recent tweet, he had encouraged music to make the music and make more music really what counts for him.
