A. Yes, I'm very proud to say I've worked with the big DOGS including Lulo Cafe as well (Check me out on his "Without you" track) It was really great, getting to work with artists who have made it in the industry and got to see the industry as they see it as well. That's great motivation to work even harder *pops collar*

A. That's true, we opened up for Zahara after Black Coffee and Dr malinga *dusts dirt off shoulder* LOL! It was a great experience for me to actually play along side people whom I look up to. We even played along side artists like Zonke, Jaziel brothers, Bucie, Eddie Zondie, Donald etc and at the Vaal annual Beach party as well. Which was also a great experience for me.
6Q. You guys have an album out called 'Mixed Emotions' what inspired the title of the album?

9Q. If you guys had the opportunity to change something about the music industry what would it be?
