The 25-year-old is the second signing to be announced by The Brazilians in recent weeks after George Maluleka from Kaizer Chiefs.

The Limpopo-born midfielder also thanked his former teammates and coaches he worked with at Lidoda Duvha.

"The past two seasons at Black Leopards have been possibly the happiest of my life. I only have feelings of gratitude towards everyone at the club, especially the chairman Mr [David] Thidiela and his family," said Kapinga on Instagram.
