Perfect Giddimani and Anthony B Amapiano track T.G.I.F

Perfect Giddimani and Anthony have teamed up to create this brand new summer hit T.G.I.F

Perfect Giddimani and Anthony B -T.G.I.F

Two legendary artists, Perfect Giddimani and Anthony B, have teamed up for a new track which is set to dominate the airwaves this summer. But the fresh anthem is unique. Because instead of following a Reggae or Dancehall path, for their inspiration the artists have honed in on a genre of South African music that’s blowing up. T.G.I.F is set for  release on streaming sites via Giddimani Records on 11 June. This Amapiano inspired track is the first single taken from Giddimani’s upcoming EP; expected later this year. Amapiano is a style of music that emerged in South Africa in 2012. It’s grown in popularity across the world and is touted by many as being the sound of summer 2021. The track also comes with an additional B-side – the rich and potent Ijumaa from Giddimani.

The track uses Amapiano as its roots perfectly. Notice the House-like four-to-the-floor dominant  beat; those dreamy synth pads and sounds; the more traditional percussion across syncopated  rhythms; the flowing string line, those regal horns and the winding melodic bass. T.G.I.F has  captured this carefree, old-meets-new genre perfectly. And the track’s central message – that  despite our struggles it’s OK to forget them for a while – also draws on Amapiano traditions.   

Giddimani said that T.G.I.F’s Amapiano origins were inspired by the Motherland:  

I got inspired by my brothers and sisters from the continent, that are the front runners for this  style of music. Home or abroad, as Africans we share the same rhythm and fundamentals. It’s only  natural that I got hooked as these sounds are deeply rooted in my DNA.  

If you want to feel upbeat happy and add a pep to your step – turn that frown upside down with  this feel good happy song that brings everyone to the dance floor”.  

T.G.I.F is sure to be a massive hit. And Giddimani and Anthony B have also helped bring Amapiano  music to whole new audience.
