Speaking to ‘TshisaLIVE’ the pair said that they grow up listening to ‘Bacardi’ which played an impact in the type of music they now produce and play, ‘’ the reason why we chose to make music that has the Bacardi sound is because we grew up around that music in GA-Rankuwa’’ they said.
Their breakthrough happened after they released ‘’Bopha’’ with Young Stunna, Felo Le Tee, that is when people started to notice them and wanted to hear more from them. ‘’We did not know we would make it so far and so big, but we knew that if we had the right people in our corner it would happen, that is when we worked with DJ Maphorisa things started happening’’ said Sleazy.
