Reliably informed

Stockton-based singer-songwriter Sisi follows up her recent single, Fallen Angel, with an Amapiano-esque number, Wicked.

The track, which takes inspiration from the Bible verse (Isaiah 57:21) ‘There is no peace,’ says my God, ‘for the wicked”, puts Sisi’s silky and soulful vocal front and centre as restless beats dance around the track and bring vibrancy to proceedings.

Here, Sisi tells us about her top five Amapiano tracks….

Deep London, Boohle – Hamba Wena 

Firstly, I had to start off with Hamba Wena, this track is just fun vibes and now that the sun is shining you’ll catch me listening to it on repeat! 

So Mi So – Wande Coal 

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate the bridge on this track! I hope that one day people appreciate my bridges, the same way that I appreciate this one, it’s insane!! I’ve known this song for years but I don’t really ever get sick of it. Also, can we just agree that the second Juls touches any production, it’s guaranteed to be a hit… praying on a collab one day. 

Khuza Gogo – DBN Gogo, Blaqnick & MasterBlaq

Gotta bring it back to my Zimbabwean roots from time to time and this one is just the ultimate soundtrack that takes me to Zim. Everyone always assumes I’m Nigerian due to a Yoruba intro on one of my tracks, but this year I’m really trying to incorporate some Zim in my music, so definitely keep an eye out for my new releases. 

Kilimanjaro – Pcee


Obsessed with this song at the minute, all thanks to TikTok and I cannot stop listening to it.

Abalele – Kabza De Small 


Of course, I had to give a shout-out to the King of Amapiano himself, Kabza De Small! He’s been killing the Amapiano game for soooo long and it’s amazing to see Amapiano finally making international waves. He’s had such an influence on the Western music scene and my new track Wicked probably wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for him and his success in pushing the genre forward.
