Blaq Diamond members and award winners Ndumiso Mdletshe(Ndu Browns) and Sphelele Dunywa(Danya Devs) are currently producing new music, along with hitmaker Themba “DJ Maphorisa” Sekowe.
Announcing the news on their social media, the duo acknowledged and appreciated the Ba Straata hitmaker for always believing in them even before they made it in the music industry.
Sharing photos of themselves with Phorry in a setup that has music equipment, Blaq Diamond captioned their post:
“@djmaphorisa was one of the first few people to believe in us before we were even signed.. after all this time we’re finally dropping something with our OG .”
The multi-award-winning Maphorisa has produced and written hits for both himself and several musicians in the entertainment sector, so he is no stranger to success
The former Ambitiouz signees admitted on Instagram that Phori was one of the few people who had faith in them prior to being signed to a label.
Mzansi urged the artists to release the feature ASAP as they could barely contain their excitement. See some of the comments below:
