Reason made it known that the intense with people in SA hip hop made him feel like he was cheating and betraying the culture by jumping into the Amapiano wave. “There is a very intense relationship that people in hip hop have with hip hop, it felt like I was cheating on hip hop, it felt like everybody was like you’re gonna turn your back on hip hop like that,” he said.
Reason continued by stating how people have been reacting to him since he joined Amapiano while imitating Julius Malema. “It felt like everybody was like you gonna turn your back on hip hop like that how dare you after everything that hip hop has done for you, took you out of the ghetto, gave you a pretty girl, this life, this fame, this money, with a Julius Malema voice, yes,” Reason said.
