Is Kwaito Music Dying?

Kwaito music has changed so vastly in it’s recent years. The lyrics are becoming more and more obscene. Some people feel like the music “dying”. Many of the artists who started Kwaito aren’t producing anymore hit music. Artist who are producing music, produce music that is very different from original African Hip Hop in terms of lyrics. Many songs have been banned because of the vulgar lyrics such as the one in Sika Lekhekhe. The lyrics are said to translate to have sex with me. There are also people stealing songs and beats.
