Johannesburg – Two-time SAMA nominees, Ma-Ero and Force Reloaded, better known to South Africa as MRF Souls, have had a whirlwind 2020, releasing their second album Musical Kings to critical praise with its lead single Amanikiniki going on to make the amapiano duo household names.
Merging new-age kwaito elements and a distinct amapiano groove, Amanikiniki refers to different flavoured crisps, with the hook asking what flavour you prefer – beef or chicken, which is a metaphor for the choices we make in life.
