Amapiano duo Reece Madlisa and Zuma have taken the music industry by storm with their catchy lyrics and dance moves. They have become one of Mzansi's most sought after artists in the music industry and they have worked with the heavyweights of the industry.


The Alexandra born and bred super stars rose to fame with their EP Amaroto which got released in 2020. Moreover, their careers were catapulted to even greater heights when they were featured on Mr JazziQ's hit song Umsebenzi Wethu.

The two have come a long way since they became famous and have been making music. A Twitter user has shared a throwback picture of the duo and it melted the hearts of many people. The picture illustrates where their musical careers started and where they are now in life.

It is clear that they've been friends forever and we love their bromance. A close look at the picture reveals little has changed about these fan favorites - their signature smiles are still as adorable as ever. Fans are also enthralled with their timeless looks! Since they have accumulated so much and come from humble backgrounds, the picture is quite motivating for their fans.

Although you can still tell that it's the duo from the snap, they are still a total flame. Take a look at the picture below.

The duo has been making boss lately. They bagged a SAMA award recently for their EP Amaroto. They also took to social media to flaunt their new BMW and fans congratulated. Currently, the duo is a driving force behind the growth of amapiano. It is amazing to see them, as well as DJ Maphorisa and other stars shine so brightly.

Maphorisa is considered a pioneer of the genre. He has worked with several stars including the duo. Recently he slammed Shimza for gatekeeping saying he must open up the industry.

Why you always making music alone. No young upcoming nyana every time Shimza alone. Grow this afro movement uplift young talent bro please that’s why they end up hating us cause you close doors. Don’t tell me you made that beat alone. Sorry, but I had to take out my chest in front of everyone. Love you mfanaka but I can’t,” wrote Maphorisa. 

Shimza responded by saying he does open the industry with his Kunye festivals, "That’s why my label @kunyerecords is for Phori, that’s why I started the label and that’s why we now have an event called KUNYE that showcases the music and streams the sets online so that people can put the face to the names bro. We all work differently bro. Love you too."
