“Check out the #HeinekenHouse Coachella line-up below. Who are you most excited to see?”

Reacting to the news being made public, DBN Gogo wrote, “Coachella let’s go” and “pushin piano @coachella”.

Speaking to IOL Entertainment the “Bells” star said this opportunity was “amazing”.

Fans were elated with the news that the “Possible” hitmaker will join Black Coffee at one of the most famous festivals in the world.

Last month, the amapiano DJ-producer announced that she had teamed up with UMG Africa to launch her record label, Zikode Records.

DBN Gogo told IOL Entertainment that the name for her record label was taken from her clan names.

Deciding on it was no easy task for the DJ but she eventually picked Zikode.

The names, “Radebe, Bhungane, Mtimkhulu, Zikode, Mashwabadada inkomo nempondpo zayo”, are tattooed on her arm, a clear nod to how much her ancestral roots mean to her.

There are several plans for the record label, especially when it comes to working with upcoming talent. Which is something that DBN Gogo is really big on, lowering the ladder for those trying to make it.

"The whole point of Zikode is obviously to sign myself to a label where I can manage myself and partner with a major so that we can push this thing beyond what I could do.

“I think it was just that time, when I needed a bit more help than actually what I could do,” she shared.
