The story before the fame
The duo got their debut in 2010. This was when they joined Faimos Entertainment and went on to produce the hit single Banane Mavoko featuring Jah Rich (the late). It is safe to say that this catapulted them to stardom. The song was such a hit that not only was it featured on DJ Oskido’s tenth commandment compilation CD, but also on a Tribe Records United Kingdom release.
From sharing their music online in 2009 to featuring on UK music lists with their percussion and live African drum flavours, the rest, they say, is history.
