Today, Apple Music announced Amapiano DJ and producer, Josiah Makoela, popularly known as Josiah De Disciple as the next Isgubhu cover star.
Born in Alexandra, Josiah rose to prominence within the music scene as one half of JazziDisciplies alongside Mr JazziQ, pushing the envelope when it came to the apparent rules of Amapiano before the duo parted ways in 2018.
With a renewed focus on his solo material he released “Mama” in 2020 alongside Boohle which was quickly certified gold by RISA. He followed that up with his debut album, ‘Spirits of Makoela – Vol. 2: The Reintroduction ‘(2021)’ which incorporated live instrumentation into the normally synth-heavy genre.
The second instalment of his ‘Sounds Of Gomora’ album series is ‘Sounds of Gomora Vol. 2: The Healers Avenue‘ which dropped this year, is an 8-track offering that continues his exploration of the various shades of Amapiano, rooted in the singles ‘Amanga‘ featuring Maline Aura and ‘Vasco‘ featuring Senjay, ManKay & Choco Dynasty.
To celebrate his feature, Josiah De Disciple has also created an exclusive Isgubhu playlist which houses a plethora of African dance tracks that have made the biggest impact on his musical journey.
“This playlist is a reflection of who I am and the type of music I make, love and listen to,” Josiah De Disciple tells Apple Music. “It includes some of my favourite work that I’ve produced and some other music which I feel have influenced my style of music. It’s a mixture of old African dance music classics that till today, are still relevant. A big shoutout to my fam at Apple Music for all the love and support!”
