In 2021, the songstress celebrated the 15th anniversary of “Feel Good” and released an amapiano remix in collaboration with Prince Kaybee.

Now, DJ Maphorisa is the latest Mzansi producer to add his touch to the fan favourite song.

The award-winning songstress shared on her Instagram account a thank you post to both Mzansi DJ’s for their remixes.

“A huge THANK YOU to @princekaybee_sa @djmaphorisa and @realgabacannal for the awesome remixes of “FEEL GOOD” now available on all digital platforms,” she said.

The award-winning singer spoke to TshisaLIVE about how amapiano was the perfect fit for the remix.

“Feel Good has been remixed before but celebrating 15 years, it was like what flavour would one go for. It would be stupid not to commemorate or celebrate the culture of amapiano.”

“It’s hot, it’s happening, it’s the new definition of what’s happening in SA. It was a no brainer. I wasn’t afraid of that because I was like, guys it’s a classic song. You don’t change anything to do with the song, you just change how you are dressing it up. You are sort of taking it to the clubs’ ama 2000 who probably don’t know who I am,” she told the publication.

With the remixes Lira wanted to honour and celebrate the culture of amapiano, and what better way than a remix. Her fans asked and she delivered.
