‘You can never separate me from Maphorisa’: Kabza

Amapiano star Kabza De Small, real name Kabelo Motha, has released a video wherein he’s addressing rumours about beefing with DJ Maphorisa.


Earlier this week, Maphorisa (real name Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe) slammed fans asking him about Kabza.

“You guys like asking me about Kabza as if I’m married to him. Kabza is married, he has a wife. Are you guys crazy? Stop asking me about Kabza every day like I’m marking the register. Are you mad?” Maphorisa said.

The Blaqboy Music owner said this during his Instagram Live session.

“Don’t you know he has his own house? He bought a house and has his own studio. Am I supposed to be living for Kabza? Are you crazy?” Maphorisa continued.

“Why aren’t you going to his Instagram account to ask him about his whereabouts? ‘Where’s Kabza, where’s Kabza?’ Where’s your mother and grandmother?” he sarcastically asked.

Maphorisa explained that he was annoyed because he went into his Instagram Live session with positive energy, but fans wanted to ask him about Kabza.

“Doesn’t Kabza have his own life to live? Is he supposed to live for me? Are you crazy? Are him and I dating? Don’t annoy me. Stop asking me nonsense!” he said.


The Mnike hitmaker’s remarks sparked rumours they were no longer getting along. However, Kabza has poured cold water on the claims.

In a video shared on social media, Kabza said that no one can ever seperate him from Maphorisa.

“Are they saying I’m beefing with Phori [Maphorisa]? They are crazy. They are talking sh*t. You can never seperate us. Forget it!

“There is nothing you can do to us. Forget it! You guys are crazy. Why would Phori and I fight? Phori is my friend,” he said.



During their interview on the Street Fame Culture podcast in December 2023, Maphorisa opened up about how they met.

“He blowed my mind with the songs he was playing and I started following him [sic] .”

He added that he was amazed Kabza played: “I thought to myself, ‘Yoh, this guy has got his own world that he created.’ I couldn’t just let him be, so I asked him ‘no bro let’s work together’ [sic]” added Maphorisa.

“I’ve learnt a lot of things from him, how the amapiano genre works as he did it in his own way. I started attending gigs and watched him and people who he played for. Kabza taught me a lot,” he concluded.
