“So crazy story, like ‘Ke Star’, the file disappeared. So after we recorded the song, I was the only one with the USB, with the mp3 and wav. So obviously at that time, we’re thinking this is a nice song but we might not drop it because if you know DSPs like Apple Music, Spotify you need to have certain requirements.”
“Then the song leaked, so when it leaked that’s when I realized mo o tshwere mollo mo. I sent it to a couple of people, I don’t wanna out them. I sent it to a couple of people and then I just found it on YouTube and it was like on half a million views in like two weeks, so I was like ey! maybe they actually like this song and then when I dropped it, it went crazy“.
