Amigo se Raak Rustig is 'n Somer Treffer
Raak Rustig deur Amigo word in 'n lekker saamsing Neo-Soul RnB Hip Hop styl gedoen en bevat ook sterk invloede van Jazz.
Ons reken hierdie nuwe liedjie van Amigo gaan nie net groot wees hierdie somer nie, maar gaan nog lank in die toekoms hoog op aanhangers se persoonlike snitlyste woon en mense kan ook leer om saam te sing met hom lirieke-video, wat ons natuurlik verder onder in die artikel vir julle ingegooi het.
Sanger en Rap-kunstenaar Amigo, ook bekend as Mario Laaistock, wie op 21-jarige ouderdom in 1994 blind verklaar is, woon al vir die grootste deel van hom lewe in Eersterivier en is eintlik 'n boorling van Elsiesrivier waar hy grootgeword het.

Kom 'Coloured Influencers' Goed Met Mekaar Oor Die Weg?
Ek kry die laaste ruk baie fanmail om te vra of ‘coloured influencers’ goed met mekaar or die weg kom. Dan was ek ook gevra oor hoe groot die kompetisie of druk onder mekaar is, en oor die juicy-ness van backstabbing, en presies hoé popularity onder ons werk.
Maar laat ons eers die probleem met die concept rondom ‘being coloured’ en being 'an influencer' aanspreek. Dr Diana Ferrus som almal in Suid-Afrika in haar werke die beste op, deur te sê; ons is ‘gemeng’. So, indien Verwoerd of Botha met hul onvoltooide grade en ‘missing thesis chapters’ genot gevind het om Suid-Afrikaners te klassifiseer is dit op hulle. It is none of my business. That is why I'm here, and they are not. And I thank you.
