10 Mega Hits You May Or May Not Know Were Produced By DJ Maphorisa

There's more to Maphorisa than co-producing 'One Dance.'

It seems there's no popular genre of music the South African producer DJ Maphorisa can't produce. Many may know him as the co-producer of "One Dance" by Drake, Wizkid and Kyla, but there's more to the man than that song. He's currently one of the go-to producers in house and hip-hop in South Africa.

As part of the quartet Uhuru, a few years ago, he and his mates crafted mega hits for the likes of Professor and Mafikizolo.

As a solo producer, he has conjured bangers for a diverse range of artists such as A-Reece, Mlindo, Sjava, Shekhinah, Zingah, Kwesta, Cassper Nyovest, among lots of others.

He has also given us hits of his own—"Midnight Starring" and "Soweto Baby," among others. His 2017 album Gqom Wave, which was teeming with bangers, went gold, and he released another potent EP earlier this year titled BlaqBoyMusic, which had both gqom and hip-hop songs.

Below, we list some songs you may or may not know were produced by the man.

Catch Maphorisa live at our Mzansi Heat and Naija Beats concert in NYC alongside Yemi Alade & DJ Tunez on August 2. RSVP HERE for the free show and the AFTERS party here.
