Thulisile Phongolo is an actress, a DJ, a voice-over artist, and a TV personality. She is known for her role as Namhla Diale in Generations The Legacy. She played a lead role in the show until her role ran out in 2018.
Thuli Phongolo posted on her Instagram that she will be a judge on a new show that’s set to air soon.
The actress and DJ has received a lot of criticism over her Deejaying skills, but it seems the more she gets tongues wagging, the more gigs she gets.
Thuli will be part of a competition to discover the next Amapiano stars – singers, producers, and lyricists.
The competition will be judged by Thuli along with JazziQ and DJ Qness, according to a video she shared Wednesday.
The Amapiano style of electronic dance music was introduced in South Africa in 2016. They are a cross between house and Kwaito. A distinctive feature of this sound is the use of smooth jazz elements and piano melodies, Kwaito baselines, and percussion from another local house subgenre known as ‘Bacardi’. Even though it is accepted that Amapiano originated in Gauteng, there is some disagreement about where the style originated, with reports of the style from Johannesburg townships, Soweto, Alexandra, Vosloorus, and Katlehong.
“Please join me as we go on a journey to uncover amapiano’s next superstar. Auditions are open from today till June 30. I’m so excited to announce that I will be one of your judges and I hope to see you on that stage,” she wrote
The South African genre known as Amapiano has become an international phenomenon in just a few years thanks to artists like DBN Gogo, Focalistic, Major League DJz, and many others.
Bontle Smith and Robot Boii, both of whom are internet sensations and musicians, will host the upcoming show under the hashtag #Amapiano’sNextStar.
