Today Amapiano Masterpiece YVK dedicates his project ‘Son Of A King’ to his legacy, King of Amapiano Kabza De Small and his new-born son as the two people that motivate him to keep going.
The musician set the tone to the album ‘Son of A King’ with a drop of leading single on Thursday, 27th October 2022 titled ‘Konnichiwa’. Listen to ‘Son Of A King’ here.
The musician is one of Kabza De Small’s prodigy and dubs himself son of a king in this music industry and father of a future king.
‘Son Of A King’ is about Masterpiece realising his purpose, his role in the music industry and what legacy and mark he is destined to leave in the music industry.
The realisation of Masterpieces power and purpose comes from the core theme from the film, The Lion King. The narrative of Simba being an outcast for allegedly killing his father which was false.
This narrative speaks to Masterpiece story in the music industry where he felt like an outcast as a result of hanging around the wrong people and taking bad advices, which led to him distancing himself from the entire industry.
This album stating his the son of a king means he finally understands his strengths and weakness and his role in the industry.
He says he is just not an artist but his a son of a king in the music industry and the birth of his son further drove his passion as his son is the next son of a king to continue his legacy as his heir.
