Amapiano genre is currently number one trending genre in the South African music industry and it comes as no surprise that many producers emerge with their own goal of reaching the top.

That is no different from Toxicated Keys, a group that was formed in April 2019 by Phadishi Daniel Mokwele known as Mr Tronicq.

The group has a total of seven members; Kamogelo Mashele (Young Fefes), Tshegofatso Letsie (Bambi), Didintle Xaba (Didi), Tshiamo Moerane (Tshiamow), Thabang Makhafola (Man Te De Musiq) and Reabetswe Sefoka (Material Figo), along with Mr Tronicq.

They have already released two projects; Another Sad Story EP (June 2019) and Problematic Friends EP (November 2019).

They also dropped few singles since their inception including Abuti wadi Raw and Shekesha with GemValleyMusiq.

“We play a very different style in amapiano,” Mr Tronicq told Mams Music Gallery.

“We play our own style. We do not copy other producers’ style.

“We are perfect with our style and we love our style very much because other producers cannot play our style. That shows that we are the best at what we are doing.”

The group have already worked with the likes of GemValleyMusiq, Tweegy, King Tee Tshiamo, Ubuntu Brothers, De Fefes, Proper DJ and Slash Virus.

Mr Tronicq adds: “We are looking forward to working with people like Twist & Shimza, Caltonic SA, SDM, Edgar the MC and Malindi.”
