Others have labelled Focalistic as an Amapiano artist whilst he also viewed as a hip hop artist. After a popular tweep questioned Focalistic’s position in SA Hip Hop saying, “Is Focalistic is a hiphop artist or yonke insipho iyawasha?“
In response, Nota took to Instagram to share his thoughts labelling Focalistic as the new king of Motswako. “MTVBase hottest MC @focalistic is the #NewKingOfMotswako what a performance on #LockdownHouseParty,” Nota said.
Would you agree with Nota that Focalistic’s sound is Motswako?
Back in 2020, Nota defended Focalistic after DJ pH said that rappers who do other genres should not be called hip hop artists.
“This is South Africa… South Africans love the sounds of Amapiano, who are you to tell them that it is inferior? The #BaseHottestMC is the one who embraced his people and still gave them Hip-hop. Listen to the message, the streets agree Focalistic Ke Star,” Nota said at the time.
