Amapiano is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South Africa in the 2010s. However, the term “Nigerian Amapiano” is not a well-defined genre, it is a sub-genre of Amapiano that has been influenced by Nigerian music.

Nigerian Amapiano is a fusion of Nigerian music and Amapiano, it’s characterized by the use of drums, percussion and melodic elements that are common in Nigerian music, combined with the deep bass, piano and synths sounds of Amapiano. Some of the most popular Nigerian Amapiano songs and artists are “Jowo” by Rema, “Osanle” by Zlatan ft. Davido, “Amaka” by 2Baba ft. Peruzzi, and “Infinity” by Olamide.

Nigerian Amapiano is not as popular as the original South African Amapiano, but it has been gaining popularity in recent years and it’s considered to be a new trend in Nigerian music Industry.
