Spotify reveals South African Most-streamed Artists & Songs of 2019

Led by Kabza De Small & DJ Maphorisa.

Today, Spotify is officially unveiling Wrapped 2019, an annual end of year summary that reveals the top artists, albums, songs, playlists and podcasts streamed on the platform. ‘’Wrapped’’ showcases how more than 248 million people around the world listened to and discovered music and podcasts in 2019, taking a look at music, culture and streaming through the eyes (and ears) of the fans and artists that made it all possible.

 

 

AmaPiano dominated South African dance floors in 2019, so it comes as no surprise that AmaPiano breakout star, Kabza De Small, is the most streamed local artist in South Africa this year, followed closely by DJ Maphorisa, with Hip Hop mega star Nasty C taking the third spot.

Shekhinah, who recently opened for legendary RnB singer Toni Braxton, remained the most streamed local female artist in South Africa. Lady Zamar, whose much anticipated second album Monarch, churned out more chart-topping hits, followed in second place with Afrikaans rock artist, Karen Zoid, claiming the third spot.

Closer to home, South Africans showed their support for local artists with “Drive” by Black Coffee and David Guetta (featuring Delilah Montagu) maintaining its position as the most streamed song, spearheaded by a local artist.

Prince Kaybe and Kabza De Small also feature on the list of most-streamed South African albums in South Africa. Prince Kaybee’s “Re Mmino” topped the list with Kabza Da Small and DJ Maphorisa’s “Scorpion Kings” in the second most streamed album slot.
