As the last day of the year is soon approaching and people give their suggestions as to which song would be the “cross-over” song, fans on social media took the time to acknowledge Maphorisa's contribution to music this year.

Known for his versatility and as the man behind many hits, Maphorisa's name made it on the trends list, the producer getting a resounding nod for making sure people enjoy 2019 with all the hits he and Kabza composed this year.

Though he's lapping up the praise now, Maphorisa has received his fair share of criticism from people who said he was riding Kabza's wave and “overworking” him.  

Seeming unfazed, in July Maphorisa shared on Twitter that the hate would not stop his shine.

It might have taken Mzansi a long time to recognise Maphorisa for the hits he makes, but like the good old saying goes, “Better late than never", right?
