The boogieman of Amapiano De Mthuda is back

by admin

“The boogieman” of Amapiano, De Mthuda, is back, and he’s here to collect what’s on his new album, Baba Yaga.

The 10-track album shows off everything we’ve come to love about De Mthuda and more: crisp production, scintillating features, and a range of songs that are ready to become the soundtrack to our December.

Baba Yaga’s lead single, Muntu Wam, will set the tone for what listeners can expect from the new record. The song sees De Mthuda returning to work with long-time collaborators Da Muziqal Chef, while he features Sino Msolo and Murumba Pitch on the vocals.

After listening to snippets for weeks, fans will finally be glad that, starting today, they’ll be able to add Muntu Wam and more favourites from De Mthuda’s new album.

The Vosloorus-born DJ has truly established himself as one of the leaders of the Amapiano movement over the past few years.

It’s been non-stop work for the hitmaker, who has released several albums and even more singles, including the iconic 2021 anthem, John Wick. The song would go on to serve as a precursor for what was to come next as De Mthuda went on to bring the Baba Yaga, the nickname given to John Wick in the iconic films, to life.
