Amapiano's international success is reflected in Nigeria, whose listenership increased by 181% between 2023 and 2024. This critical influence has led Spotify to launch the website, A Decade of Amapiano, to celebrate the past decade of Amapiano.

The website has content that will capture Amapiano's different key influences, as well as, pivotal playlists and podcasts for anyone wishing to learn more about the genre’s origins, sounds, and future.

Amapiano has found a ready audience in Nigeria who eagerly embraced the South African genre and delivered era-defining hits by deploying its famous log drums and shakers.
