Voting closes today for MFR Souls’ hit single Amanikiniki at the Tik Tok Awards
Two-time SAMA nominees, Ma-Ero and Force Reloaded, better known to South Africa as MRF Souls, have had a whirlwind 2020. The duo released their second album Musical Kings to critical praise with its lead single Amanikiniki going on to make the amapiano duo household names.
Merging new-age kwaito elements and a distinct amapiano groove, Amanikiniki refers to different flavoured crisps, with the hook asking what flavour you prefer – beef or chicken – a metaphor for the choices we make in life.
From Sandton to Soweto, Amanikiniki has become a crossover hit that has captured the attention and imagination of a wide audience. The video, which was released 4 months ago, reached over 7.7 million views on Youtube and sparking a nationwide TikTok dance craze in the process. It’s this dance craze that earned them a nomination for TikTok #SongOfTheYear based on the number of local creations in 2020.
From the nominations, TikTok users vote for their favourite song and the song with the most votes will win the title of Song Of The Year.
